Master Plan 2012

In December 2012, Seminole State College of Florida’s District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a master plan for the Altamonte Springs Campus. That plan called for eight new high-rise buildings and parking structures at the campus, and the creation of 1.4 million square feet of space, more than the College’s four campuses combined.

The College plans to rely on first-in-Florida public-private partnerships to fund the construction, which will be completed in nine phases. The first phase began in January 2013 with the College receiving full access to 25.4 acres adjacent to the current campus. The College introduced the final plan to the community and possible partners during a series of forums in early 2013.

As envisioned by HuntonBrady Architects, the master plan includes 950,000 square feet for classrooms and academic space, enough to accommodate more than 9,000 full-time students. In addition, the plan calls for 450,000 square feet for public-private partnerships and retail.

Prime Location

The campus is located at State Road 434 and Maitland Boulevard. The area is the region’s second-largest employment center after downtown Orlando, with 72,738 daytime workers. Also, more than 100,000 people live within a short drive of the campus.

Highlights of Master Plan

  • Planned growth: The master plan calls for construction to be built in nine phases based on funding.
  • Urban campus: Buildings will average seven stories and be as tall as 15 stories along Maitland Boulevard.
  • Sustainability: The project will show Seminole State’s dedication to sustainable design and vision for a sustainable campus.
  • Mixed-use development: In addition to academic space, the campus will include space for public-private partnerships as well as retail space.
  • Ample parking: The master plan calls for surface parking as well as two large parking garages, enough for 5,700 cars.
  • A sky park: The south parking garage will feature a green roof, providing recreational space for the campus.
  • Campus commons: The plan depicts a linear campus mall with multifunctional outdoor spaces that encourage interaction between students, faculty and staff.
