Rosen Hotels & Resorts began construction on a new laundry building at the company's Orlando resort.

The building is expected to open late summer 2019. The 34,584-square-foot building will replace the current laundry facility located in the hotel and will include a multimillion-dollar laundry equipment package. The equipment package includes two eco-friendly, continuous batch washers that will use one-tenth as much water as conventional commercial washing machines and an elaborate, fully automated bag rail system suspended from the ceiling that will enhance the operational efficiency at the facility.

The new laundry building is located at 4100 Destination Parkway near the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF.
