Weston Park Multi-Family Development (Transit Oriented Development – TOD)

Longwood, FL

Project Description

This project consisted of a public-private partnership between FDOT, Seminole County, the City of Longwood and the private developer. In addition to constructing the SunRail Station, FDOT constructed the adjacent roadways, parking lots and stormwater ponds to serve the public parking areas. The City of Longwood was responsible for constructing the water and sewer utilities for the proposed development along with the stormwater treatment ponds for the private developer. The developer’s project included multi-family apartments designed in a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and included a new 300-car parking garage constructed over the FDOT parking lot, replacing the original spaces plus adding spaces for the private development. AVCON was responsible for civil engineering services related to the private development elements.
