The new Tao Hotel Orlando will anchor the City Center at O-Town West, a $1 billion, 365-acre mixed-use community that Orlando based Unicorp National Developments is building.

The area is truly up and coming now, with much construction as new hotels, restaurants and retail location pop up within O-Town West.

Chuck Whittall, Unicorp’s President, said that the Tao Hotel would be a five-star luxury resort rising 15 stories.

“This is a giant deal,” Whittall said. “It’s bringing in a high-end themed restaurant, and generally you’d only find restaurants like this in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago or Miami. I think this takes Orlando to the next level. It’s such a great concept.”

“I think people from all over Central Florida will drive a distance to come here,” Whittall added. “It’s just a very cosmopolitan type brand. It’s going to be beautiful.”
