If a five star resort and a upscale high rise got married and had a baby, it’d be 29 Palms At City Center. This new real estate bundle of joy is a combination of the high-end amenities and services you’d expect at a high end resort, and the modern floor plans, state of the art appliances and luxurious design elements you’d expect from a luxury home in Ocoee. Being part of this innovative condominium community means living every day like you’re on vacation. Here’s an inside look at the details of this up-and-coming community that you need to know!
29 Palms in Ocoee: The Plan
29 Palms is the next big thing to happen in the Ocoee real estate market. It is set to be one part of City Center West Orange, a $400M project that will change the way people live, work and play in the Central Florida area. City Center West Orange is projected to be upscale urban lifestyle developments, and along with 29 Palms, will feature retail, medical, restaurant and commercial space.
Not only will the development of City Center West and 29 Palms create upscale living accommodations for Orlando residents, it will also create jobs. The hotel, restaurants, retail spaces will bring in between 600,00-7,000 jobs for locals, according to Ocoee Mayor Rusty Johnson. He also predicts it’ll bring life and boost morale to an area that some could describe as “sleepy.”
After five years of careful planning and designing, the official groundbreaking ceremony for this urban lifestyle community was held in April, and development ensued quickly after. The first 8-9 months will be devoted to creating roads, and the actual structures will go up sometime mid-summer.
Over the next 8 years, 29 Palms will expand into one of the most sought after condo communities in the area. Ocoee realtors are already being bombarded with questions from locals about how they can be one of the first families to experience life at 29 Palms. There will be 1,720 condos for sale and will feature 200,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space. This community will be complete in phases, and phase one is set to be complete in 2019. Phase one consists of 450 residences, the on-site hotel and the first 180,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. After phase one, developers estimate it’ll take six years for the entire project to be complete.
29 Palms will sit on 100 acres of lakeside property in Ocoee, right where 429 and 408 meet the turnpike, off of State Road 50. Upon completion, it’s location on the lake will allow residents to spend evenings and weekends strolling the community and enjoying dinner by the water. The location is convenient to local grocery stores, medical offices, banks, salons, retail shops and restaurants. The community is located close to some of the highest ranked public schools in Florida, as well as many daycares, faith based schools, charter and specialty institutions. 29 Palms will put guests just 15 minutes from the theme parks and outlet malls, and less than 20 minutes from the Convention Center and some of the area’s most famous malls, like Mall of Millenia and Florida Mall. This inspiring new community will put guests in the middle of everything that Central Florida is known for, while giving them a private community to come home to.
Ocoee Meets Winter Garden
This high rise community will also be just minutes from one of Orlando’s most charming little towns, Winter Garden. This historic small town sits on what used to be orange groves, and provides the mom-and-pop, white picket fence feel that can get lost in the big city. Winter Garden is known for its incredible Winter Garden Farmer’s Market, it’s prime location on the West Orange Trail, and it’s adorable downtown area that is home to thriving local business, great schools, patio cafes and sidewalk boutiques. Living in 29 Palms will mean being close to the vibrant arts, music and cultural scene of Downtown Orlando, but being close enough to the quiet suburbs of Winter Garden to experience the sense of community and belonging that the area is known for.
29 Palms offers five levels of residential living space and an impressive 7th level amenity deck. There will be five unique floor plans to choose from, ranging from 693 square feet to a sprawling 1453 square feet. Each residence has a private patio or balcony overlooking the property, a gourmet kitchen with state of the art appliances, 1-3 spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms with stylish finishes and price tags starting in the $190’s. Every flow-through floorplan is designed to create as much comfortable common space as possible, while also focusing on private spaces and quiet areas. Chef-inspired kitchens will feature the high end appliances custom cabinets, granite counter tops and breathtaking views from almost every angle. Designer fixtures and finishes give each floor plan a unique feel and personality, while offering the highest standard in quality design features in every room of the home.
Residents that call 29 Palms home will fall in love with the VIP level amenities and services offered exclusively to them, making coming home each night feel like the first day of vacation. For those committed to leading a healthy and active lifestyle, a 24 hour fitness room equipped with weights and modern cardio machines will make an early morning or late night workout easy and convenient. Racquetball courts and group exercise classes allows residents to switch up their fitness routine and connect with neighbors who are passionate about sports and fitness. 29 Palms will also offer a rooftop pool with luxury cabanas, a perfect place to unwind after a busy day at the office. Speaking of the office, residents can take advantage of the business center if they need to host a meeting, or simply need to fax or print an important document. Parking is designed to be as convenient as possible, and there are charging stations for electric cars as well. Weekends can be spent lounging with friends in the billiards room or connecting with other parents as kids play in the children’s area. Living at 29 Palms will make you feel like you live on a vacation resort, and that’s exactly what it was designed to do.
Not only will 29 Palms offer luxurious residences and world-class amenities, but it’ll also allow residents to experience an upscale lifestyle that can’t be duplicated in any other condominium community in the area. The on-site retail and restaurant space is what will make this community feel like a vibrant city center instead of just a typical neighborhood. Locals can walk from their condo to one of the many upscale shopping boutiques, stop for a cocktail or lunch with friends, swing by the on-site grocery store for a few things, head up to the 7th floor for a nap by the pool and end their day with dinner by the lake, all without having to leave the property. 29 Palms is designed to give residents everything they need to experience lakeside living at its finest.
