Two Marriott hotels to break ground at Disney’s Flamingo Crossing

Construction will kick off next week on two Marriott-brand hotel properties in a new development west of Walt Disney World, reports the Orlando Business Joournal. JL-FX Hotel Development will break ground on the new SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites in the Flamingo Crossings project.

The two hotels will comprise a total of 500 rooms and reportedly create as many as 170 new jobs.

Anchorage, Alaska-based JL Properties Inc. bought a 9.6-acre site west of Walt Disney World for $8 million.

Flamingo Crossings is a 450-acre value-oriented tourist district by Walt Disney World.
