Flamingo Crossings

Flamingo Crossings 450-acre lodging and shopping district planned on the Walt Disney World property near State Road 429 and Western Way. Parcels of land will be offered for sale to developers, though remaining within the Reedy Creek Improvement District, to build value-oriented hotels and motels, along with fast-food and casual dining restaurants, and shops offering wares such as groceries, toiletries, and basic clothing. The development is planned to be built in phases over 8-10 years, with the initial groundbreaking in 2014 for two Marriott hotels (TownePlace Suites and SpringHill Suites) to open in 2016.
