Pair of apartment projects in the works near Disney

by Jenna Goodroe |


Via Orlando Business Journal

By   –  Staff Writer, Orlando Business Journal

Two multifamily developments may rise near Walt Disney World, adding more than 1,200 apartments to an area that’s bouncing back from the pandemic.

Combined, the projects may cost in excess of $240 million to build, based on industry standards, and will create jobs as well as opportunities for subcontractors and vendors. Orlando’s fast-growing population and its low apartment complex vacancy rates continue to drive demand to build new residential space.

 308 apartments are in the works on 12.4 acres near State Road 417 and State Road 535, Orange County records show. Raleigh, North Carolina-based Kimley-Horn & Associates is the project applicant, and Poinciana FW LLC — an entity related to Orlando-based Intram Investments Inc. — is the property owner.

Orlando-based Scott + Cormia is the project architect, and Innovations Design Group is the project’s landscape architect.

Project representatives weren’t available for comment. Poinciana FW LLC bought the property in March 2018 for $2.5 million or roughly $201,612 an acre, Orange County records show.

The project, called Poinciana Phase II (Alaira II), would rise next to Aventon Alaira at 8072 Poinciana Blvd. The new project will feature a dog area, bike parking, pool, clubhouse and more.

Happy 4th from S+C!

by Jenna Goodroe |


We are honored to work in an industry that has the opportunity to, both literally and figuratively, influence the building blocks of history. We can only hope that our buildings might have a chance to stand for something great.

As we prepare to gather with our families and watch the fireworks, we’d also like to look back at buildings that have become synonymous with our country’s history.

Building Blocks of Independence

INDEPENDENCE HALL

It can be argued that Independence Hall is the most important building in the founding of the United States of America. Completed in 1756, and originally used as the Pennsylvania State House, it was outfitted in red brick by Edmund Woolley in a Georgian-style architecture.

The building was the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence (1776), the ratification of the Articles of Confederation (1781), and the development of the U.S. Constitution during the Constitutional Convention (1787).

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL

Via Architectural Digest – Click to view full article.

Completed in 1922, Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial was built in the style of the ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon. Rising 30 feet off the memorial floor is a marble statue of Abraham Lincoln, a keystone that architect Henry Bacon thought would be appropriate for a president who defended democracy.

Since then, it has been an attraction for students and tourists, and a site for civil rights demonstrations and events. In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the memorial before a crowd of thousands.

S+C and PBC Team to Bring Steel Chef to I-Drive

by Jenna Goodroe | , , , ,


Via Commercial Construction & Renovation Magazine, Posted on  by davidc@ccr-mag.com

Precision Building Construction LLC will be building a new restaurant and retail addition to a long-established motor lodge in the heart of the International Drive tourist corridor.

The construction cost of the project will be between $2 million and $3 million and work is expected to begin in the fall, said Chuck Hobus, president of Orlando based Precision Building Construction.

The new food and retail venue, with 5,300 square feet of leasable space, will be attached to the front of the 119-room Travelodge By Windham Orlando, formerly the Heart of I-Drive Hotel, at 7200 International Drive.  The facility will be named Steel Chef after one of its main tenants.

Steel Chef is a takeout restaurant concept. There will be a total of 26 leasable containers and they will be constructed where the three-story motor lodge’s front parking lot is located.

The project currently is in the design phase by Precision Building Construction and Scott Cormia Architects of Orlando. The target date for completion is summer of 2022.

“This new addition will provide a fresh, revitalized look for the property, and it will provide new shopping and dining options at a busy International Drive location,” noted Hobus.

Precision Building Construction is a major design/build firm with healthcare, retail, industrial and commercial projects throughout Central Florida.
