The Ocoee City Commission has plans to review a proposed change to a contract involving city-owned land during the regular agenda portion of tonight’s commission meeting.
Back on Aug. 4, 2020, the commission directed staff to provide with preparation of a contract with BPK Investments for the sale of a 17.96-acre parcel of city-owned land at the northeast corner of Fullers Cross and Ocoee Apopka Road. Two months later — in October — a price of $3,560,000 was set pending GPK securing a final site plan approval and other development approvals.
The original agreement was approved, but now GPK has shifted gears. The plan from the get go for GPK was to develop a commercial project on the land, but now the company is proposing the site be developed as a townhome or apartment development that includes first floor residential on the building that front the Fullers Cross and Ocoee Apopka Road, according to city documents.
Given the change, the city’s staff is looking for input regarding the possibility of a mixed use commercial/townhome or apartment project.
