Reunion Station final plat extension, new development in Winter Park
November 3, 2016
The Winter Park Town Council approved a second extension to the final plat agreement for Reunion Station at Winter Park.
Reunion Station was approved on February 16 for five townhome lots and one commercial lot to be located on US. Highway 40 adjacent to the Winter Park Post Office.
The owners of Reunion Station, Urban Living at Winter Park, requested another six-month extension on November 1 to the final plat due to the lack of presales on the units. In order to secure a loan for the project, Urban Living must secure presales prior to breaking ground. They stated they remain committed to the development and plan to record the plat once presales have been secured. This is a onetime extension approval and after February 16, 2017 failure to record the Plat shall constitute an abandonment of the prior approved Final Plat and cause approval to be nullified unless the Town Council grants an additional extension.
According to a letter from Corey Seitz of Urban Living, they have been actively working on the Reunion Station project since approval of the final plat approved on February 16. Construction documents for both the commercial and residential components are complete and they have selected a local general contractor to build the project. Their intention was to start the project last summer and felt they were very close to securing the final contract that would have met the lender’s requirement, but the sale was never finalized.
According to the proposal introduced to the Town Council on February 16, Reunion Station will consist of five residential lots along Lions Gate Drive and one commercial retail/restaurant space along Highway 40. The commercial space will consist of approximately 3,472 square feet of indoor space and 2,838 square feet of outdoor patio space. The outdoor patio will include fire pits, a stage for performances, and ample seating buffered by landscaping. The property is located between Highway 40 and Lions Gate Drive directly north of the post office.
