WHY

Wyld Oaks is one of the region’s most influential developments of this magnitude to break ground in recent years. It is a powerful moment in the future of the Orlando region’s geographic growth and a tangible manifestation of the economic ripple effect induced by Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX)’s recent completion of the 429/Western Beltway extension, which now links the northwestern portion of the Orlando region to Interstate 4.

Wyld Oaks will bring Apopka and Orange County a novel mix of new multifamily and condominium housing, shopping, dining, entertainment, hotel accommodations, outdoor recreation, and iconic public park spaces across a 215-acre master plan.

With a strategic location along the newly expanded expressway and direct access via W. Kelly Park Road, the Wyld Oaks development represents substantial local investment, construction and permanent job creation, and the bridging of a significant retail opportunity and multifamily housing gap in the local market. The net result will be substantial growth in jobs and a tax base that can be used to fund expansion of schools and public works.

As of 2023, approximately 12,900 current and future households are growing in the Apopka area surrounding Wyld Oaks (Esri + Claritas 2022 Data). Adding to future demand of those moving into the area, there is a significant retail opportunity gap for total retail trade, including food and beverage, within five miles of the new community. In fact, 2023 demand for Wyld Oaks retail is estimated to be nearly $1. billion, while supply is only $700 million, leaving an opportunity gap of approximately $400 million.

Representatives from Wyld Oaks will be available for interviews, providing insights into the development’s vision, preservation, and sustainability initiatives, and how Wyld Oaks will be a significant catalyst for continued growth in Apopka and the Orlando region.

ABOUT WYLD OAKS

Anyone who is following the unstoppable growth of the Orlando region knows: the northwest area, where Apopka is located, is one of its fastest-growing submarkets. As of 2023, approximately 12,900 current and future households are growing in the Apopka area surrounding Wyld Oaks. NYSE traded Toll Brothers, Lennar, DR Horton, Ryan and other national home builders have already broken ground around Wyld Oaks with some of their largest single family initiatives in the USA.

Adding to future demand moving into the area, there is a significant retail opportunity gap for total retail trade, including food and beverage within five miles of the new community. In fact, 2023 demand for Wyld Oaks retail is estimated to be nearly $1.1 billion, while supply is only $700 million—leaving an opportunity gap of close to $400 million.

Wyld Oaks is the epicenter, already having set new records for land sale values driven by its novel vision, and filling the deep opportunity gaps for experiences, tastes, residences, and businesses that have been catalyzed by a growing population, unprecedented new home development, major industries, and a vital new expressway that has quite literally paved the future.
