Creative Village Orlando
Lambert provided the strategic vision and defined the redevelopment focus in the context of grant submission for Creative Village Orlando. The successful grant application was awarded $10 million.
Creative Village is located in the heart of downtown Orlando and situated on a 68-acre site that was formerly home to the retired Amway Arena. Creative Village is an innovative urban planned development that is being built upon Orlando’s digital media industry. The overall vision is to create an integrated community of education providers, high-tech companies and digital media companies with residential, retail and academia sectors.
Lambert Advisory served as the lead economic, financial and strategic advisor to Creative Village LLC (in a joint effort with Bank of America CDC and its Consortium partners) in the preparation of a TIGER II Grant submission. The planning effort represented a comprehensive and complex integration of disciplines between the private sector (master developer), the City of Orlando, BACDC, Lynx transit system among others.
