ORLANDO, Fla. — Editor’s note: This story is available as a result of a content partnership between WFTV and the Orlando Business Journal.
The developer behind the $1 billion RoseArts District project is eyeing a first phase that includes nearly 1,600 apartments and 150,000 square feet of retail space on the site of the former Lake Orlando Golf Club in the city’s Rosemont community.
However, a lawsuit brought forth by an entity on behalf of Rosemont residents asserts that the neighborhood’s residents have a legal right to vote on the matter and potentially stop the development from happening.
A hearing scheduled for Oct. 26 will determine whether the litigation goes forward.
