Lift Orlando to start work on $23.5M Phase 2 of west downtown community

Construction is set to start in late September on the next piece of a downtown Orlando effort to avoid gentrification while redeveloping existing neighborhoods.

Lift Orlando — a nonprofit organization launched by several prominent local business leaders — plans to build a new $23.5 million senior living facility dubbed Pendana Phase 2, as part of its effort to improve communities in the shadows of downtown’s Camping World Stadium.
