From the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce

On Tuesday, November 20th, the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce was excited to welcome Hilton Garden Inn to the Apopka City Center with a special ground-breaking. This is the first of many developments that will be included within the Apopka City Center.

This 118 room, 4-story Hilton Garden Inn, designed with the option to create up to four two-room bridal or executive suites, will be the first development to kick off the Apopka City Center and will be located at the northeast corner of McGee Avenue & 6th Street, across from the existing Highland Manor.

The entire City Center development project, which is expected to comprise approximately 35 acres centrally located at the interchange of U.S. Highway 441 and State Road 436, is proposed for 207,000 square feet of restaurants, retail, and office space as well as a hotel and homes. Eleven acres are proposed to be a community park, pond, and boardwalk. The long-term plan, which phases-in the project over the next 20 years, includes a possible 180 acres of development.

This is wonderful news for the future of our City and we want to thank our Mayor Bryan Nelson, City of Apopka, Orange County Commissioner Rod Love, Orange County Commissioner-Elect Christine Eckers Moore and City of Apopka Commissioners Douglas Michael Bankson, Alexander Smith, and Kyle Becker and our Board Members and Ambassadors for joining us!

  1. We were going to go to the city center groundbreaking, but the skies were too heavy with rain clouds, and it had been raining earlier, so we just drove by, down by the BK and across the back. We saw the workers with the heavy equipment taking out trees. I see the ladies there in the photo wearing their high heels there at the construction site…lol…kind of like the first lady wearing her stilettos at the hurricane damaged areas. Oh, and look at those gold shovels…. The city construction crews used to get those gold shovels passed down to them, when the city was through with the shovels, after the groundbreaking ceremonies of the past.
