Permits filed for Flamingo Crossings Housing project

Oct 01, 2018 in "Flamingo Crossings"

Plans have been filed with the South Florida Water Management District for a new housing project at Flamingo Crossings.

Located just off State Road 429 and near to the Western Way entrance to Walt Disney World, the plans call for 1323 multi-family apartments on a 60 acre site. (Thanks to danlb_2000 on the WDWMAGIC Forums for spotting the permit)

Likely tenants for the new apartments are students of Disney's College and International Program, which makes up a significant amount of Walt Disney World's workforce.

Almost 5 acres of the site are for commercial development, and the development will include associated sports/recreational courts, community and education centers, swimming pool, and paved driveways, bus/ride share pick-up areas and surface parking lots.

Disney rebooted its 10 year old Flamingo Crossing development last year, with an announcement of new plans to bring 29 retail and restaurant buildings across 45 acres, to be developed in three phases.
