Windermere approves major downtown redevelopment; June 9, 2021

After two years of negotiating, six public meetings and a myriad of issues large and small, the Town Council approved the 2 acre redevelopment on Main Street last night in a unanimous vote.  Jim Hall of HDSi is the team leader on this project for long time client Jim Karr and his partners.  The existing realty building and three shops will be razed to make way for 21,750 square feet of new development which will include a restaurant, retail and office space.

A key to the project is preserving large live oaks on site as well as a state of the art septic system.  The proposal follows the Town’s 2004 downtown overlay in all respects.  This redevelopment will be a significant upgrade for the Town’s downtown.
