New Hotel, Dining and Shopping planned for Kissimmee near Margaritaville and proposed Nick Resort

A new hotel, dining and shopping area is planned for a stretch of Highway 192 in Kissimmee, that's around 25 miles from Orlando International Airport and just a short drive from Walt Disney World.

The area has seen explosive growth in recent years with multiple new hotels, restaurants, and retail locations, including the massive Margaritaville Resort, Sunset Walk Entertainment District, and Island H20 Water Park which was built on the former home of the long gone Splendid China attraction.

We have also recently reported that a huge new development is coming to the area, near State Road 429, the new $1-billion development called Everest Place is planned, with Phase One of construction expected to deliver a mix of retail and commercial spaces, medical offices, four resort hotels including a Nickelodeon Resort, and a luxury MYSK by Shaza Resort, plus residential units, and multi-family apartments.

As first reported in the Orlando Business Journal, the latest commercial development, that includes a Hotel, Restaurants and Shopping locations, will be close to Sickies Garage Burgers & Brews and Portillo's latest location on the 192/West Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway.

Lake Wilson Enterprises LLC purchased a 9.2-acre plot of land in August 2019 for $6 million. In Osceola County, near Funie Steed Road and Morgan Williams Road.

Chris Leppert with Kimley-Horn filed a meeting request on behalf of the landowner and the property has been discussed at a development meeting with the county that happened on February 15, 2023.

While not much is know yet about the new development, it continues to shine a light on an area of Kissimmee that is seeing incredible growth in recent years, and it will be interesting to see what the precise plans will bring further to the area.
