The Packing District is a 202-acre transformational project centered at the intersection of Princeton Street and Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando, preserving the history of the area while providing a vibrant base of living and commerce.


Historic buildings are being repurposed, integrated with new uses, and connected to dedicated public spaces by a new and bold plan for urban trails and a new 100-acre public park (gifted to the City of Orlando) dedicated to health and wellness, education, arts and community, and sustainability.


Preparations first began to ready the site for construction in 2018, with the project continuing to mature over the next 10-15 years.
