Developers have released their first look at a major affordable and mixed-income housing community that aims to meet the needs of workers in Orlando, Florida.

The 1,000-unit Catchlight Crossing is the result of Universal Destinations & Experiences’ Housing for Tomorrow initiative, with the entertainment company donating 20 acres of land in the heart of the city’s tourist district to be used for affordable housing.

Wendover Housing Partners was selected to develop and manage the community, and Beyer Blinder Belle Architects and Planners (BBB) is the master planner and design architect.

“Catchlight Crossings is a first-of-its-kind approach to affordable housing, and we know BBB will be an exceptional partner in bringing this community to life,” said Jonathan Wolf, founder and CEO of Wendover Housing Partners. “More than 100,000 people work within a 7-mile radius of Catchlight Crossings. As these folks roll out Orange County’s red carpet to the world, they deserve to feel the warmth in their world. Every aspect of this community is designed through the lens of our future residents, ensuring they will have a safe, comfortable place to call home.”
