Lowndes provided zoning and land use counsel to Magruder Eye Institute for the development of a new 32,000-square-foot medical office building in Winter Park, Fla. for the medical group. The city’s planning and zoning board unanimously approved plans for the two-story building, which will replace a 6,000-square-foot retail store that currently occupies the location at 2245 W. Fairbanks Avenue.
The project’s redevelopment plans required annexing seven residential properties; amending the city’s Comprehensive Plan and Official Zoning Map to establish a land use permitting parking on the annexed properties; and securing approval for construction of the building on the combined 2.5-acre site.
Lowndes attorney Rebecca Wilson, who chairs the firm’s Land Use, Zoning and Environmental Group, represented Magruder Eye Institute during the approval process.
