Osceola County, Florida – Today, Osceola County hosted its annual State of the County Address and announced that several major land development projects, all bordering Osceola Parkway, are underway.   The new projects include:

  • Orlando Health’s 60,000 square foot emergency room and medical pavilion
  • An Eastwind Development two-phase, 350 unit apartment complex
  • A 128-room Hampton Inn Hotel by Daniel Corporation of Altamonte Springs
  • A 120-room assisted living and memory care center by Providence One

The land for each planned development is being purchased from TUPPERWARE BRANDS CORPORATION (NYSE: TUP), original land owner since 1953.  “Osceola County is a well-positioned, multidimensional community for residential, hotel, office, retail and medical developments,” said Tom Roehlk, Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer of Tupperware Brands Corporation. “These projects are helping to transform the county while supporting its current pace of growth.”

One of the largest land development announcements for the area, together the projects total more than $150 million primarily for land and building construction costs.  “This is an incredibly exciting time for our community.  We are growing steadily and these new additions of the state-of-the-art medical facility, hotel and housing projects only will enhance the lives of Osceola County residents and reinforce our contributions to the overall development of Central Florida,” said Viviana Janer, Osceola County District 2 Commissioner. 

Construction for phase one of the new Orlando Health medical facility is set to begin this fall and is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.  Phase one will feature a three-story 60,000 square foot emergency room and medical pavilion that includes a free-standing emergency department, provided as a service of Orlando Health’s Dr. P. Phillips Hospital. It will include more than 15 treatment rooms, an imaging department, ambulance bays and a helipad, along with parking and supporting infrastructure. Phase two could include up to 60,000 square feet of additional medical offices, surgery centers, and other health and wellness concepts.

The Eastwind Development apartment complex will be located across the street from the Tupperware Sunrail stop, and will feature five 4-story modern mid-rises with detached garages and a clubhouse.  This first phase will include 240 units that will open in 2018. 

Daniel Corporation will begin construction this year on a 128-room Hilton Hampton Inn on Centerview Boulevard immediately across from Tupperware’s Worldwide Headquarters and will serve local accommodation needs, including those for Osceola County’s sports venues.

Providence One will also begin construction this year on a 120-unit assisted living and memory care facility at the intersection of John Young Parkway and Centerview Boulevard, this will be the first of such uses within Osceola Corporate Center.

Commissioner Janer also shared Tupperware’s plans for reconstruction of Orange Avenue as a four-lane, divided highway.  “This roadway improvement is critical to supporting the necessary infrastructure as Osceola County continues its growth, providing an appropriate gateway into SunRail’s new Tupperware Station.” The reconstruction spans the edge of Orange County to the end of Orange Avenue at Osceola Parkway, and will be completed by year-end 2017, company officials said.
