BRINGING UNITY TO
Established in the 1880s by Orlando’s then mayor, James B. Parramore, as a place to “house the Blacks employed in the households of white Orlandoans.” And for 60 years, it grew into a thriving Black community with 18k residents and streets lined with vibrant schools, theaters, local shops, family-owned restaurants, and hotels. But in the 1950s and 1960s, amidst civil unrest at the end of the Jim Crow era, new construction cut Parramore off from the rest of the area and the community suffered greatly.
Builds on the success of Orlando’s digital media industry by transforming the former site of the Amway Arena in downtown Orlando into a 68-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented, urban infill neighborhood. This area will be home to leading higher-ed providers, high-tech, digital media, and creative companies, leading to a diverse mix of students, employees, and residents. Creative Village fosters a “live, work, learn, and play” lifestyle in the heart of downtown while bringing exciting opportunities to the Parramore area.
