During 2001-2002, the City worked closely with residents of
the Villages of Southport and the consultant team of Glatting-Jackson
to update the Base Reuse Plan for the McCoy Annex to take into
account several of the unforeseen changes that had taken place
since the 1994 adoption of the original plan. The
first draft of the updated plan, called the Southport / McCoy
Annex Vision Plan, was completed in August 2001, and the revised
plan was ready by September 2002.
negotiations between the City of Orlando, the Navy and the Greater
Orlando Aviation Authority, the City prepared a final update of the
Southport Vision Plan in June 2006. In the coming
months, the City will issue a Request For Proposals (RFP) for a
developer team to take on the 217 acres of City property.
We hope that this final phase of redevelopment will be as
successful as the Villages of Southport project has been.
The Southport / McCoy
Annex Vision Plan examines how best to redevelop approximately 217 acres of former Navy property now owned by the City of Orlando.
The result is an updated land use plan and urban design guidelines,
showing how these City properties can be used to create a great new
community at Southport.
The plan envisions the former 100 acre
middle portion of the site as the centerpiece of the new community
of Southport a town center that would include a
supermarket, other retail services and a variety of residential
uses, linked seamlessly to the existing neighborhood and the
Community Park. To the north, the 39-acre
site along McCoy Road is seen as a business park that could include
offices, a hotel and restaurant(s). To the south,
the old Navy apartments are expected to be demolished and could be
replaced by a golf village with access to the adjacent Boggy
Creek Golf Course. In fact, the Vision Plan shows
how the golf course itself could be expanded to 18 holes.
June 2006 Vision Plan Update identifies the possibility that the
existing Boggy Creek Golf Course might not remain in operation as
the former Navy properties are redeveloped. In this event, it
would be necessary to re-examine potential uses for the old Navy
apartment site. Therefore the Vision Plan Update provides an
alternative in which the southerly portion of the old apartment site
could be redeveloped as a warehouse / industrial park. The
northerly portion (adjacent to and north of Dowden Road) would be
redeveloped as a residential neighborhood.
noted above, the City will incorporate the Vision Plan into the
Request For Proposals (RFP) concerning the development of about 217 acres at the McCoy Annex. Responses to the RFP will be
required to be consistent with the Vision Plan. This process
as was successfully used in the selection of Orlando Partners
as the developer for the NTC Main Base.
