Sanford, FL – January 29, 2016 – Wharton-Smith officially broke ground January 26 on the City of Casselberry’s 20-acre Lake Concord Park development. Touted as a new gateway to Casselberry, the mixed-use project will feature luxury apartments, restaurants and retail, with public gathering areas, playgrounds, pathways and lakes.
The project is being developed as a public/private partnership between the city, its community redevelopment agency, and private developers. As construction manager, Wharton-Smith will oversee all site development and infrastructure for the $34 million project. Casselberry Mayor Charlene Glancy compared the development to the highly successful Baldwin Park community. “This ‘vision’ has been 20 years in the making,” she said. “And now Wharton-Smith is going to bring it to the finish,” she added.
“Wharton-Smith is excited to be a part of transforming the urban landscape of the City of Casselberry,” said Darin Crafton, Vice President – Commercial Division. “The Lake Concord Park Development will be a wonderful addition to this community and we are proud to have a hand in seeing the city’s vision come to fruition,” he added.
