Today, the Osceola County Board of Commissioners released a proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Osceola County and a potential partner, which if agreed to at the upcoming County Commission meeting on Monday, would replace the University of Central Florida’s (UCF) role with BRIDG and NeoCity, while renewing the original vision for NeoCity.
Plans to develop four hotels on about 200 acres of county-owned land at Osceola Heritage Park and NeoCity are now underway.
The Osceola County Commission last month voted to work with Riviera Point Development Limited, out of Miramar, Fla. on the project.
Riviera Point will lease the land from the county for anywhere from 20 years to 99 years, said Kerry Godwin, director of planning and design for the county.
The Department of Defense has awarded the first, of potentially many, contracts to NeoCity’s BRIDG to develop advanced microelectronics. The Department of Defense’s Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment (IBAS) program awarded BRIDG a contract worth more than $20 million to create a new process to develop the next generation of microelectronic chips that will help secure the United States defense industrial base.
A partnership between Tokyo Electron (TEL) with BRIDG announced this week to develop tool and process technology needed to further enable collaborative approaches for development-to-commercialization of technologies and applications that accelerate commercialization of emerging technologies drew praise for Osceola County officials.
Frito-Lay today announced intent to invest $130 million to construct a 286,000-square-foot high-tech service center on 75 acres across from the new Poinciana SunRail Station.
On Monday, the project was introduced to the County Commission as Frito-Lay. Company executives presented plans for a facility that will employ 200, and be completed by 2021.
The 286,000-square-foot service center for Frito-Lay in Osceola County will allow for continued growth in the county and the surrounding communities.
