The Horizon West initiative is made up of six individual villages—about 45,000 households at build out—which will be supported by the Horizon West Town Center. Regional and commercial employment will be located at the town center (3,700 gross acres) and will serve, complement and sustain the residential neighborhoods of the Horizon West Villages and surrounding areas.

The town center will include residential, office space, retail, warehouse and light industrial, hotel rooms and a conference center.

Other notable benefits and planned amenities will include regional accessibility, world-class golf courses, Valencia Community College Campus, medical campuses, recreational trails and waterfront parks.

The Horizon West Town Center plan calls for multiple districts created to foster a community that is responsible and responsive to its natural environment, its residents and its businesses.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO URBAN SPRAWL PATTERNS

Horizon West is the result of an innovative vision that began in 1993 as a public/private partnership coordinated by MSCW, a central Florida-based design firm. With the desire to proactively and responsibly manage change—dramatic population growth and a changing economic base—the Orange County Board of County Commissioners adopted the Horizon West Village Land Use Classification and Sector Plan. Designed to create livable, sustainable places to drive economic development in West Orange County, Horizon West is an alternative to unplanned urban sprawl patterns.

The master planned initiative is made up of six individual villages—about 45,000 households at build out—which are supported by a regional town center, Horizon West Town Center.

Covering roughly 28,000 acres, Horizon West also calls for one rural settlement, two championship golf courses, two high schools and one elementary school per neighborhood. The smart growth initiative is currently realizing 1,500 to 2,000 dwelling units per year absorption and is well on its way to having a positive impact on the West Orange County community.

THE TOWN CENTER PROFILE

The original premise of the Horizon West Sector Plan included the concept that regional and commercial employment be conveniently and attractively located in a central town center—3,700 gross acres—that would serve, complement and sustain the residential neighborhoods and market base of the Horizon West Villages and surrounding areas.

The Horizon West Town Center is designed to sustain a full range of employment, shopping, housing, learning and recreational opportunities in proximity to one another. Specifically, the town center’s 1,200 acres of developable land will include:

• 6,400 residential dwelling units
• 8.2 million square feet non-residential uses
• 5.7 million square feet office
• 2.1 million square feet retail
• 384,000 square feet warehouse and light industrial
• 1,200 hotel rooms and conference center

Other notable benefits and planned amenities will include:

• Regional accessibility
• World-class golf courses (existing)
• Valencia Community College campus (under contract)
• Medical campuses/Health Central (projected)
• Hotel and conference center (projected)
• Recreational trails and waterfront parks
• Full range of housing types (multi-family to lakefront estate homes)
• Commercial and residential centers within walking distance from corporate office locations
• 44,000 to 50,000 households projected within town center subregion
• A renewed jobs to housing balance

FOUR UNIQUE TOWN CENTER DISTRICTS

The Horizon West Town Center plan calls for multiple districts created to foster a community that is responsible and responsive to its natural environment, its residents and its businesses. To complement the surrounding villages and neighborhoods, the town center districts support multiple uses: retail and wholesale; corporate neighborhoods; corporate campus and mixed use; and a traditional downtown.

RETAIL & WHOLESALE DISTRICT

This district is designed to provide essential regional retail and services to the surrounding community.

Key elements include:

• Big box retail, restaurants, business, personal and auto-oriented services
• Extensive streetscape
• Transit stop and on-site parking for commuters
• Cross access agreements and joint-use parking

CORPORATE CAMPUS MIXED-USE DISTRICT

This district will provide a vital employment center using a mix of office and residential in campus-like and neighborhood settings. Key elements of the Corporate Campus Mixed-Use District include a block layout of primarily office space. Secondary residential land uses in an urban street setting will include a market-driven mix of:

• Single-family homes
• Town homes
• Condominiums
• Apartments

CORPORATE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER DISTRICT

The purpose of the Corporate Neighborhood Center is to provide neighborhood retail, service and civic activities as walkable destinations for residents and the local workforce. Key elements of this district include:

• Office, retail, personal and business services, restaurants, civic and residential above retail
• Buildings built to the street and accessed from sidewalks
• Architectural variations strongly encouraged

TRADITIONAL TOWN CENTER DISTRICT

The Traditional Town Center is planned as a mixed-use urban center. This district will serve as the cultural, entertainment, employment and residential core of the overall Horizon West Town Center plan. It will be the active lifestyle, retail center and will include a waterfront park and educational facilities anchored by Valencia Community College. There will be 1.4 million square feet of non-residential area and an expected total of 1,140 residential dwelling units.
