Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer Celebrates the
Development of Kirkman Point Project
Mission Trip Results in Significant
Investment in Orlando
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer will join Megastron Development,
LLC, for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of the
Kirkman Point project’s first phase on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at
2:00 p.m. This is a significant project for the Orlando community
because it is the first time the Brazilian-led Megastron Development has
invested in the City of Orlando.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will celebrate the completion of Kirkman
Point’s first phase, a 4-story, 133,000 square foot Class A office
building. A total of nearly 650,000 square-feet of mixed use office and
retail space on almost 20 acres will be built out in four phases. When
completed, there will be two four-story, and two six-story buildings and
two parking garages.
Kirkman Point is being developed by Brazilian-led Megastron Development,
LLC, a group of developers who decided to invest in Orlando after
meeting Mayor Dyer during a 2008 business and trade mission to Brazil.
This project is Megastron's first project in the Orlando area; it is
their 8th major project in the United States with nearly one million
square feet of commercial and industrial space built in south Florida.
The trade mission to Brazil in 2008 also yielded daily service between
Orlando and Sao Paulo, Brazil on TAM Airlines, air service that had been
pursued by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority for many years. The
Kirkman Point project and the service between Orlando and Brazil on TAM
Airlines are examples of the type of economic development opportunities
that can result from cultivating Sister City and international
relationships – and further proves that Orlando is increasingly being
chosen as a place for international investment.
