A big development plan may be coming to about 26 acres of land at State Road 472 and Kentucky Avenue on the southeast side of Orange City.

The project is known at The Crossings.

“This property is ripe for development and proposes a mix of uses that will allow local residents to shop, work and live within convenient proximity to I-4,” said Becky Mendez, development services director for Orange City.

The proposed project would include 13,609 square feet of office space, a 100-room hotel (typically 45,000 square feet) and 288 multi-family units, which would include seven apartment buildings and a clubhouse. The proposed project also has a convenience store, restaurants and retail space.

“This is the first stage in their review process, the rezoning,” Ms. Mendez said. “We anticipate the day will be coming quickly with site plans for the commercial portion of the project.”

The project was scheduled for an Aug. 5 meeting of the Orange City Planning Board to rezone the property from mixed use suburban to the planned unit development zoning classification.

The applicant is Frank Cannon, Trycon Management and Leasing in DeLand. Other projects of the company include Victoria Park Village Center in DeLand and the Shoppes at Baytree in Melbourne.

The projected impact fee payments include city police, $51,667; city fire, $123,396; city parks, $99,239; city transportation, $233,250; city water, $404,800; city sewer $784,300 ($426,800 to the county); county transportation, about $1.37 million; and schools, $864,000.

The City Council's first reading for the change is scheduled for Sept. 8 and the second reading for Sept. 22.
