Downtown Orlando has undergone significant transformation in the past year. We saw the commencement of several development projects, including Modera by Mill Creek, Central and we celebrated the groundbreaking and opening of several new developments. The University of Central Florida and Valencia College held the groundbreaking of their future campus, which is expected to bring 7,700 students.
We welcomed Ace Cafe’s first North American location to downtown Orlando, which draws motorcycle and car enthusiasts from around the world and is helping to generate increased visitation and economic benefits to the area with its festivals and events.
Downtown Orlando continues to evolve into a true urban neighborhood, offering a diverse selection of amenities. We saw the opening of Walgreens, bringing convenience and encouraging a healthy lifestyle to our area.
We continue to see large scale events hosted in downtown Orlando and welcomed the NFL Pro Bowl for the past two years. Overall our region held more than 1,100 events! And this figure is anticipated to increase as we seek new events to sponsor recognizing that community events strengthen economic growth to the area.
