Unveiling the Future: Lee Vista Village Resort and the Changing Landscape of Orange County


In a bid to redefine the hospitality landscape near State Road 535 and Interstate 4, AIC Hotel Group is in the early planning stages for Lee Vista Village Resort. This ambitious project envisions four hotels boasting a collective 1,934 rooms, 16 restaurants, 270 apartments, and an array of recreational amenities, including pools, waterslides, and a lazy river.

While the proposal sparks excitement for increased options and potential economic benefits, residents like Alexandra Salazar express mixed sentiments. Living near the proposed site, Salazar recognizes the potential advantages but highlights concerns about the inevitable surge in traffic.

“A lot of the people I know, we work for the industry. It will be beneficial to have more options, but at the same time, they have to fix all of the issues that it’s going to bring,” says Salazar, emphasizing the prevalent traffic issues and the need for infrastructure improvements.

Salazar further addresses the ongoing challenge of affordable housing, echoing the sentiments of many residents in the face of continuous development. As plans unfold, with waterslides and a lazy river becoming part of the resort’s attractions, the community awaits resolution to existing concerns before embracing the prospect of more resorts and apartments.

With construction timelines yet to be established, the Lee Vista Village Resort prompts a reflection on the evolving needs of Orange County residents. As the community navigates potential changes, it becomes imperative to prioritize existing challenges and ensure responsible growth.


Addressing current concerns is crucial in the wake of transformative projects like Lee Vista Village Resort.
