ORLANDO-Atlanta’s Alter Group is almost at the finish line in its push to break ground on a single-story, 250,000-sf office building with an estimated hard construction value of $40 million.

Orange County’s planning committee has approved the developer’s plans for the project in the Quadrangle Business Park adjacent to the University of Central Florida in east Orlando.

Still unresolved, however, are nearby residents’ concerns over the size of a buffer between the commercial space and their homes.

Orange County originally suggested a 100-foot buffer. The developer counter-offered with a 39-foot buffer. The residents in the 91-home Riverside subdivision say they will settle for a 50-foot buffer.

Russell Posey, Alter’s senior vice president handling the project, couldn’t be reached at GlobeSt.com’s publication deadline. But county planning representatives tell GlobeSt.com on condition of anonymity the 50-foot buffer will probably win out.

The residents have until July 1 to file a former appeal if the developer remains adamant on the 39-foot buffer.
