Ordinance No. 2013-63 Amending the Land Development Regulations for the Orlando Medical Plaza Planned Development, Generally Located North of Fernwood St., South and West of E. Copeland Dr., and East of S. Orange Ave., and Comprised of 2.1, acres, more or less; Amending the Development Plan, Development Program, Landscaping Plan, Architectural Regulations, and Other Land Development Regulations of the Planned Development (Orlando Medical Plaza PD Amendment) (Economic Development)


Orlando Medical Plaza requests an amendment to its Planned Development ordinance to allow development of a 112-room, 9-story hotel between the two existing medical office buildings. This project, which may be developed in two phases, includes the renovation of a portion of the northernmost medical office building into hotel space.

When presented to the Municipal Planning Board in July 2013, this project consisted of 85 hotel rooms and included the possibility of a pedestrian bridge connection from the hotel to Orlando Regional Medical Center, across Orange Avenue. Since that time, the applicant has withdrawn the bridge concept and increased the number of hotel rooms to 112. However, the building mass and height remain unchanged.

Per the City’s Growth Management Plan, this property is designated Office Medium Intensity (OFC-MED) on the Official Future Land Use map. OFC-MED allows hotel and restaurant only as “secondary” uses to the principal permitted use. The proposed project complies with this standard, as the hotel and restaurant square footage are less than half of the overall project.

The Municipal Planning Board recommended approval of the project in July 2013. City Council approved the MPB minutes on August 26, 2013 and approved the item on 1st reading on June 23, 2014.
