New Developments Strengthen Economy near Winter Haven Homes
When you leave your Winter Haven home each day, it is evident that local economic development is on the rise. Winter Haven’s economy is on the rebound in large part due to the opening of Legoland Florida in October 2011. Since the grand opening, Legoland has expanded with a water park and new attractions such as the recently opened Star Wars™ Miniland Model Display. This expansion has resulted in more than 1,200 jobs, making Legoland one of the city’s largest employers.
In addition to Legoland, construction is underway on the CSX Integrated Logistics Center that upon completion will create 8,000 new jobs and more than 5 million square feet of development. The Landings, a state-of-the-art mixed-used project, will provide residents of Winter Haven with first-class shopping, dining, and recreation with an Olympic-sized pool and lakefront park that will include a marina. Upon completion, The Landings will create approximately 800 new jobs and generate over $23 million in annual payroll.
