Plans Unveiled for City Center West Orange

President of Park Development Corporation David Townsend announces plans for $150 million community of shops, hotels and condos on 60 acres of lakeside property facing West Colonial Drive in Ocoee.

"It's a place where the residents of Windermere and Ocoee could go and hang out and, of course, there will be 1,300 to 1,900 condos and apartments," said Townsend. "It's more of a community as opposed to a destination."

Phase one will include a 122-room Hilton hotel, 150,000 square feet of shops, 500 condos, office space and a 150-room assisted-living facility. According to Townsend, work is set to begin this July.

Hidden Meanings in OHC Logo

Between the frosted snowflake tips and beaming sun rays, there is far more to Orlando Hockey Center logo than meets the eye

While the Orlando Solar Bears will soon break ground on the 125,000 square-foot hockey facility in West Orange County, construction of the community's logo just wrapped.

Design firm Joe Bosack & Co, also the creator of the Orlando Solar Bears logos, captured the spirit of Central Florida hockey in this colorful logo, peppered with an array of subtle details. The
 seven points of the snowflake are made up of hockey stick blades and represent the maximum number of games that can be played in the Stanley Cup Final (since 1939). The nine points in the sun mirror the number in the Solar Bears logo, as does the hockey stick pointing up in celebration. The logo incorporates many of the same brand colors as the Orlando Solar Bears.
