Officials vote to transform Oviedo Mall development into apartments


OVIEDO, Fla. — The Oviedo Mall will transform into hundreds of new apartments.


Council members unanimously approved plans to build 425 apartments on the abandoned mall property.

The Macy’s location has been vacant since 2017, when it closed.

Each time there is a new idea for the property, traffic figures must be recalculated.

As the city has grown, traffic in Oviedo has become an issue.
