If you haven’t yet heard of SoDo, you might want to pay attention. Briefly mentioned here in a previous post, SoDo is an up-and-coming community development in South Downtown that promises to rival East Orlando’s Waterford Lakes and the Winter Park Village. My opinion: Winter Park Village should be on watch.
SoDo, lodged near the intersection of Orange Avenue and Michigan Avenue, will be host to apartment living, shopping, and restaurants. This complex is certainly a much-needed rejuvenation for the sometimes dodgy area of town.
So what can you expect once the development of SoDo is complete? Well, here’s a taste:
• SuperTarget (unarguably the [shopping] heart of the development)
• TJ Maxx
• 24-Hour Fitness
• Rental apartments
• Mix of national shopping brands
• Local boutiques
• Cafes (reportedly outdoor; ummm, did we forget we live in hot Florida?)
To get a better feel of what the community will look like, check-out this site plan I borrowed from Sodo-Orlando.com:
I was in the “SoDo” area earlier today and managed to snap some photos of the progressing development:
We’ll have updates here as the SoDo development is complete!
