Winter Springs Town Center Plan & Code
Prior to the design of the Winter Springs Town Center, the City of Winter Springs was comprised mostly of independent planned unit developments (PUDs) with no coherent or defined center. The Winter Springs Town Center and its adjacent neighborhoods, designed for approximately 200 acres of strategically-located, mostly undeveloped land, now serves as the focal point for the entire city. Tuskawilla Road, designed as the main street, runs perpendicular to SR 434, a four-lane arterial thoroughfare. As a main street, Tuskawilla Road links the bustling Market Square to the more quiet Magnolia Square. Adjacent and connected to these core areas are mixed-use neighborhoods that include office, retail, and residential uses. The Cross Seminole Trail runs through the site and offers alternate pedestrian and bicycle paths into the heart of the Town Center and provides equestrian and hiking trails around the periphery. The trails feature views of pristine wetland preserve areas. Gibbs Planning Group and Michael Design Associates assisted Dover, Kohl & Partners in the creation of the plan.
