"We have a strong commitment by all partners not just to be in downtown, but to be of the downtown community." - UCF President, John C. Hitt
On September 23, 2014, UCF President John Hitt told 400 community members, "I am proud to announce a landmark decision. UCF will expand in downtown Orlando!"
UCF is actively working with the City of Orlando and other partners on a plan for the 68 acres freed up when the NBA's Orlando Magic moved its arena and headquarters about a mile away. The developable area, adjacent to Interstate 4 and the historic Parramore Community, is the home of Creative Village.
Creative Village, the largest mixed-use project in downtown Orlando, will provide space for K-12 education, residential units, retail, commercial, office space, hotel, public parks and civic space. And for higher education, where approximately 15 acres have been zoned for UCF and Valencia College.
More than 7,000 students from both schools will add to the creativity and vitality of the area when the campus opens, creating a bridge of common interest and purpose with established neighborhoods.
