The District is a high-density residential/mixed-use project located on Universal Boulevard in Orlando, FL. It consists of 425 units, approximately 18,000 s.f. of retail space, amenities, and two integrated parking decks. Total construction and land costs were approximately $90 million dollars, the largest total for a project our company had completed at that time. During the design and permitting phase, I had to work extensively with the Orange County Building Department to meet the strict compliance of the Florida Building Code. During this time, I expanded my code knowledge and interpretation abilities substantially, and in several cases was able to alter the Building Dept. reviewers interpretation/acceptance of the code.
