Orange County Government, Florida

Metrowest

A District 1 Community

Overview

Only a portion of the MetroWest community lies in District 1, with the other portion in District 6. The 1,805-acre mixed-use community features a prominent main entrance situated on MetroWest Boulevard off of Kirkman Road and is a diverse, cultural neighborhood of families, professionals, students and businesses. The community features the prominent MetroWest Golf Club, an 18-hole award-winning golf course designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

The neighborhood was developed in the 1980s by Debra, Inc., an Orlando-based developer, as a business, commercial and residential community. It has more than 9,600 residential homes and includes a range of housing options featuring single-family homes, apartments, townhomes and condominium complexes spread over the gently rolling landscape.

Prior to its development, the area south of Hiawassee Road, consisted of endless rows of orange groves.
