Big projects will be showcased during ULI summit in Orlando

Some of the biggest projects in the Orlando area will be showcased when the Urban Land Institute’s annual Florida Summit is in town June 12 and 13.

The 2014 Summit, held last year in Naples, will be at the Walt Disney Swan Resort, 1200 Epcot Resorts Blvd.

The ULI is one of the largest global nonprofit organizations for urban planning and research, including architects and other planning professionals. It has more than 30,000 members globally.

Three tours will be offered simultaneously on Thursday morning. The first is called Orlando Community Venues, focusing on arts and entertainment in downtown, including construction on the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the planned new Citrus Bowl and Soccer Stadium. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orlando City Soccer CEO Phil Rawlins, and Citrus Sports CEO Steve Hogan are expected to attend the tour.

The second tour is about Downtown Disney’s renovations. The third is Medical City, the area’s fastest growing residential area, hosted by Lake Nona.

Standard registration for the summit is $585 for non-members, but the tours are available to a limited number of non-registered guests for $35, according to the event website.
