A village emerges in the heart of Downtown Orlando

Creative Village builds upon the success of Orlando’s digital media industry by transforming the former Amway Arena site into a 68-acre mixed-use, transit oriented, urban infill neighborhood in the heart of Downtown Orlando.

The vision for Creative Village focuses on developing a true “live, work, learn and play” urban innovation district that supports a synergistic and dynamic mix of uses including higher education, PS-8 education, mixed-income residential, student housing, office space/creative studios, retail/commercial, hotel and parks/open space.

Leading higher education providers; high-tech, digital media and creative companies; and a diverse mix of students, employees and residents will call Creative Village home. Vertical construction of several projects is underway and the UCF/Valencia Downtown Campus will open at Creative Village in August 2019 with more than 8,000 students/faculty/staff.
