Boggy Creek Road corridor south of Orlando airport attracts new high-dollar project | Orlando Business Journal

An Alabama-based developer has filed plans in Orange County to build 325 apartments just south of Orlando International Airport, off Boggy Creek Road — effectively doubling down on the project it has directly next door.
Thomas Daly of Winter Park-based planning firm Daly Design Group is the applicant for the request — to discuss building 325 apartments on 12.4 acres at 14646 Boggy Creek Road — on behalf of landowner Orlando Airport Property LLC and contracted buyer Alabama-based Arlington Properties Inc.
Orlando Airport Property LLC is an entity related to developers Ralph Singleton and Robert Harrell, and the project would be part of the Tyson Ranch mixed-use projects the duo is master developing.
Longtime Orlando land broker Daryl Carter, who owns land across Boggy Creek Road from the Tyson Ranch PD, has said an upcoming road-widening project for the corridor is proving pivotal to its planned growth — and could help the area’s momentum someday mirror the development on the airport’s north side, along Semoran Boulevard.
“What Boggy Creek Road was lacking was that it was a two-lane road, but the county is in the process right now of widening that road,” Carter said. “What kind of uses would you expect to see on a new, freshly four-laned Boggy Creek Road? Well, the same uses you expect to see on the north end of the airport where the road has a different name.”
