Flamingo Crossings is a master-planned retail and tourist development comprising 450 acres at the junction of the Western Beltway (S.R. 429) and Western Way. The core of the development is a planned 270,000 sq. ft. retail town center. The project combines third-party branded lodging, retail and dining in a pedestrian-friendly environment and will be another example of Disney’s commitment to unique placemaking. Early development of the master plans include 4,000 – 5,000 low to mid-rise, value-priced lodging units and 300,000 – 500,000 square feet of commercial space. Designed around a retail village, the development will become a convenient shopping and service center for Cast Members, nearby residents and Central Florida visitors.
Phase 1 is approximately 163 acres. It includes the realignment and widening of Hartzog Road, the extension of Western Way, and the construction of First Avenue, Second Avenue, Third Avenue and Main Street (approximately 7,800 lf of roadway with various shoulders). In addition to the roadway systems, the project includes utilities, storm water systems, roadway lighting and intensive area development work.
