Proposed expansion of the Downtown Orlando medical complex

Proposed expansion of Downtown Orlando medical complex

A expansion of the medical complex is being prepared for downtown Orlando. South Orange Medical Complex Inc., which is in DeLand, wants to change land use to expand the medical complex Set on 2.3 acres between West Harding Street and West Muriel Street on Orange Avenue.

The changes allowed will be for up to 54,000 square feet of retail space e office. However, that size is above the 29,684 square feet normally allowed. As a result, the built-up area will have a parking.

The three-story office building previously approved is already partially built. The first phase of construction will include the completion of that building and the creation of the garage.

The garage will be built at West Harding Streetin front of the Pulse nightclub site. As soon as it is completed it can be used by visitors to the area.

The second phase will be the construction of a officesfully functional. However, there may still be some changes when construction resumes, Burkett told Orlando Business Journal.

In addition, the office building may allow future uses for retail and for a day care center in that part of Orlando. However, the focus is on doctors' offices, as well as labs, imaging centers, and other healthcare activity.

Approval of the authorities

However, the changes proposals will still be presented to the City Planning Board on April 21, 2020. This is a necessary step as future land use will require approval from that Orlando Council.

Construction of the first phase could begin in the third or fourth quarter of this year. However, everything depends on the permitting and approval,

This year, other health care companies are also looking for buildings for medical offices.


As one of the examples, the non-profit health care system, AdventHealthhas completed the first phase of its 'Medical Plaza' of US$ 13 million and 22,260 square feet at 19735 US Highway 441 in Mount Dora.

Facilities like this usually create jobs. For example, the Mount Dora office will hire 50 people when complete, including doctors, nurses, and non-clinical staff.


The facility includes 21 exam rooms, two physician workrooms, procedure and consultation rooms, an internal reception area, and a large glass-fronted lobby.

According to LoopNet, Orlando has 66 medical offices of varying sizes for leasewith monthly fees ranging from US$ 11 to US$ 38 per square foot.
