Winter Park, FL

Winter Park, FL: (Jun-01-07) Central Park Station Partners LLC, at the request of the city and US Postal officials, proposed building a mixed-use condo on the property. The project was to include a new post office and ground floor retail and came to be known as the Carlisle Project. The Carlisle Project has drawn intense opposition from Winter Park residents, who opposed the building in their neighborhood.

In a settlement reached, the city of Winter Park and the developers of the Carlisle Project have tentatively reached an agreement to settle the suit over the proposed development adjacent to the city's Central Park. As part of the agreement, Central Park Station Partners LLC will assign to the city their contract with the US Postal Service for the purchase of the Winter Park post office on New York Avenue at Garfield Avenue. The city would pay $3.7 million for the assignment. In addition, Central Park Station Partners would receive up to $2.15 million should the city receive grant funding from the Florida Community Trust. Winter Park submitted an application in the spring for a $3.58 million grant from the Florida Community Trust, a state land acquisition grant program that provides funding to local governments and eligible non-profit environmental organizations for acquisition of community-based parks, open space and greenways.
