Highlighting the $92 million land listing in the heart of the area’s tourist district

Just east of Orlando’s major attractions like Disney World and SeaWorld sits roughly 600 acres of gross land and 260 acres of contiguous land for development. Located in Orlando’s Shingle Creek, the development is prime for investors to help bolster and enhance the area’s booming tourism industry.

“It’s a few miles from the magnets like the theme parks and shopping centers. Orlando is a top tourist destination in the United States,” explained Marc Sirkin, senior advisor at Engel & Volkers Miami, which is managing and marketing the property. “It’s taken some time for this particular land to get assembled. Over 100 owners have had to agree, assemble, and aggregate to put this together. It’s ready for visionary developers and investors to seize the potential.”

Whether Shingle Creek is poised for hotels, timeshares, condos, or offices, Sirkin said it’s his job to facilitate and bring the right people together among the several interested parties. Having combined an MBA with a real estate license, and having achieved the area’s highest price per square foot for a luxury residential real estate building earlier this year, Sirkin is in a unique position to do just that.

“Ultimately the master developer will determine how to divide up the area, but the goal is to accommodate the myriad potential entities,” he said. “The project needs to get the right people at the table.”

Regardless of what the development entails, one of the primary goals is to maintain Shingle Creek’s natural beauty, said Norman Shabel, attorney with his namesake firm, serving as co-counsel with William Moore to represent the over 100 owners of the land. Roughly half of the land mass will remain undeveloped.

“We’ve been working on this project for over 20 years,” Shabel explained. “It benefits not only the owners and developers, but all of Florida. We want the project to be a celebration of natural beauty and the attractions there.”

Orlando remains the most visited destination in the U.S. with over 72 million visitors per year. In addition to the expanding theme parks, the city also hosts several major premium shopping outlets, the Orlando Convention Center which boasts over 2.1 million square feet of conference space, and the Orlando International Airport, currently undergoing a $1.1 billion expansion.

Though perhaps not the last uncharted territory in this bustling hub, Shingle Creek certainly represents the largest. After it has achieved the necessary approvals for future land use, it’s ready to build, which means developers need to strike while the iron is hot.

“It’s a high-profile situation,” Sirkin said. “The most exciting part is that it’s early, and investors can get in at the beginning and start making their moves. We have all the owners lined up and working with the government, so a lot of activity has already happened. But it’s prime for a lot more.”

  1. Dear Marc Sirkin,

    You thought we forgot ? HELL NO, you don’t know us !

    Let me remind you the story clear.

    I send you a e-mail first because me and my friends wanted to book your apartment for holidays. ( AKOYA BUILDING NORTH MIAMI BEACH).

    We discussed a lot and we fixed the price: $2125 for 4 girls from October 5th to October 8th. Marc, you was the one to ask us to pay by western union and wire. (After having discussed with homeaway, they told me it was a big mistake but i didn’t know i was dealing with a LIAR).

    Few days before coming in Miami YOU called me to tell me:

    "We received new rules from the bulding. You have to share the condo with my wife". We weren’t agree because we paid the whole condo so we asked you to refund us and you started to make those dumb stories.
    Before paying, we exchanged a lot by e-mail and you never mentionned this situation.
    And like a dishonest man, you waited us to pay to announce us this. WHAT A SHAME !

    We told you to found a solution or to refund us because from our side it was pretty clear, WE WON’T SHARE THIS APARTMENT WITH YOUR WIFE. 2 days before coming, we were in Las Vegas and you send me a text message and you told us that we are not welcome anymore to come in your condo because we didn’t want to share it with your family.
    You propose us a hotel witch your friends is the owner i guess, but we refused and let me tell you why: How can you have the audacity to choose a place for us to stay with OUR MONEY !!! This hotel "La quintanna" IS A WACKASS HOTEL.
    And for the dates we supposed to be at your house, this hotel was cheaper. So clearly, you wanted to keep our money and drop us to this wackass hotel.
    Until today, we don’t understand why you and your wife didn’t stay at this hotel but anyway….

    The funny thing is when you first told us to stay with your wife we told you we won’t be 4 girls anymore but 2 mens will come to join us and 2 girls are going back to France. The first thing you said was " But i thought you were 4 girls. SO WHAT We still four anyway !!! And you started to speak CHINESE until today.
    You thought because we were girls we will allow those BULLSHIT ? HELL NO !

    The most surprising is how you can even think it’s ok to tell people who book your apartment ( People who work hard in life and just want to enjoy their holidays), to share the condo our wife and kids. I thought you was more smarter. I’m sure this is not the first time you do those kind of things but you messed with the wrong people.
    I even asked you if you will be there too and you told us no because you have a business meeting. so it means without this business meeting you will be there too ? you wanted us to share our vacation’s home, that we paid a lot with you, your wife and yours kids ? The apartment is 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and you imposed us to share 1 room for all 4, and your wife will take the other room or we booked the whole apartment. WHAT A SHAME MARC SIRKIN !!!

    If you refunded us from the beginning the story will be over. But you decided to act like a dishonest man.

    It’s been 5 month now we are back in France and you didn’t refund us OUR MONEY yet. We are in 2017 !!!

    You can found attach all the text messages i sent to you and it was always the same excuses " My wife is working on the other party and we will refund you" 5 MONTHS and always the same stupid story.

    I have ALL the proof of every payement i did. I didn’t even write a review to this property because i know how dishonest you are you will delect it.

    At the end of the day Marc Sirkin, i know you will NEVER REFUND US so you what ? You and your wife can keep the money but one thing KARMA WILL GOT YOU TWO.
