A suburban-Orlando company, based in Altamonte Springs, is starting the New Year by breaking ground on $50 million of Orlando-area vacation club and timeshare resort projects according to Roger B. Kennedy, Jr. president of Roger B. Kennedy Inc.
Roger B. Kennedy, Inc. was founded in 1870 by Irish immigrant Roger Kennedy and has since stayed under the descendants’ control, says the corporate website. The Orlando office started its operations in 1972 and now the company is ranked as Central Florida’s eighth fastest-growing company. Specialized in multi-family, hospitality, commercial and healthcare projects including apartments, condominiums, student housing, hotels, timeshare resorts, sports facilities, medical and office buildings, Roger B. Kennedy, Inc. offers mainly construction and pre-construction services.
Groundbreaking for Silver Lake Resort’s $6 million, six-story, 24-unit Building 1900 at 7751 Black Lake Road, Kissimmee was held January 6. The company started Regal Oaks Resort’s $22.4 million vacation club phases 2, 3, 4 and its 21,151 square foot clubhouse and pool at 5780 Golden Hawk Way, adjacent to Kissimmee’s Old Town attraction, on December 10 (the fourth phase starts February 24). Kennedy also broke ground December 2 for Westgate Resorts’ $21.5 million, eight-story, 80-unit Westgate Town Center, Building 6200, at 2770 N. Old Lake Wilson Road, Kissimmee.
The Regal Oaks Resort and Silver Lake Resort projects were designed respectively by Maitland group Charlan, Brock & Associates and Charles H. Parsons Architect, P.A., based in Kissimmee. Their delivery is expected in the course of this year. Westgate Resort’s Building 6200 is slated for completion in April 2015 and was designed by General Design Architecture, Branson, Mo.
