35-STORY VERTICAL MEDICAL CITY PLANNED IN ORLANDO
A developer hopes to break ground in January 2020 for the 35-story Vertical Medical City on a 2.5-acre site in Orlando that formerly housed a Cadillac dealership, the Orlando Sentinel is among news outlets to report. Bounded by the SunRail tracks and Orange Avenue on the east, Marks Street on the south and Garland Avenue on the north and west, the property would be under a long-term land lease to Ponte Health. It would house offices, ground-floor retail, an assisted-living facility and parking. An office/multifamily project was proposed in 2006 at the site but never got past the application stage.
