Metropolitan Orlando led the nation in percentage job growth in 2016 and as a result, home sales are doing well.  One of the areas where the growth is most noticeable is West Orange County.  Healthcare facilities, new schools and new home construction are all part of the West Orange boom that will continue steadily into 2017.

Here’s a few highlights of major projects happening:

  • Healthcare:  Orlando Health recently completed Health Central Hospital in Ocoee is expanding in Horizons West and Dr. Phillips.  Florida Hospital will continue to expand it’s new Winter Garden campus.
  • Education:  In response to the explosion of growth and families moving into West Orange, the new Windermere High School will welcome it’s first 1,800 students in Fall 2017.  The newly named Windermere Wolverines are in the process of adding programs, administration, holding PTSO elections and building a new community for the students and parents it serves.
  • Housing / Development:  The Hamlin community (Horizons West) is developing it’s Town Center, offering new retail and entertainment options of residents and locals on the shores Lake Hancock.

Of course, the steady growth of West Orange presents it’s own set of challenges for residents, municipalities and lawmakers.  It will be exciting to see how things progress over the course of the next year. West Orange communities also offer residents close proximity Orlando’s main theme park attractions; Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World. Check out our Team Koss video on Dr. Phillips, Windermere and Winter Garden for more details on the area.

If you are involved in the business community, we also strongly recommend joining the award winning West Orange Chamber of Commerce, now celebrating it’s 45th Anniversary.
