Orlando, Fla. — Close to campus, the mixed-use project will open August 2014.
Orlando, Fla. — American Campus Communities has selected Winter Park Construction to build Plaza on University, a mixed-use student housing and retail project across from the main entrance to the University of Central Florida. Designed by architect Niles Bolton Associates, the $60 million, 1,313-bed, complex will open in August 2014.
The 650,000-square-foot project will house 364 units within a 5-story wood-framed building. It will include 60,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor. A 10-story precast parking garage will partially surround an amenity courtyard containing a resort-style pool, misting cabanas, sport courts and barbecue area.
ACC bought University Shoppes last July for $27.2 million from M&H University Shoppes LLP, an entity related to Orlando-based developer Markay Management Inc., according to the Orlando Business Journal.
