The UCF Downtown and Valencia College Downtown Campus opened in August of 2019 with over 8,000 students, faculty and staff. Creative Village is home to the new Electronic Arts Orlando Studio which opens in 2021 with over 700 employees.

Project Highlights

  • Opened August 2020
  • The Julian is a 14-story building with 409 apartments
  • The Monroe Restaurant on the ground floor
  • Integrated and access controlled parking garage

Apartment Types

While The Julian offers a variety of studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartments, the studio units provide a unique opportunity for renters to live in a well-appointed private apartment and still afford an “A+” urban location.

The Julian focuses on efficiently designed unit floorplans with common areas, amenities and shared experiences where residents can socialize, collaborate, study or work from home.

Creative Village

The Julian is located in the heart of Creative Village in Downtown Orlando. Creative Village is a 68-acre urban redevelopment project that builds on the success of Orlando’s digital media industry. The project transforms the former Amway Area site into a mixed-use, transit-oriented, urban infill neighborhood that is home to the new UCF Downtown and Valencia College Downtown campus; high-tech digital media and creative companies; and a diverse mix of students, employees and residents. Creative Village is an Innovation District that fosters a “live, work, learn and play” lifestyle in Downtown Orlando.

Phase One at Creative Village is well underway and represents over $700 million in development activity.

Creative Village is a public/private partnership between the City of Orlando and the Master Developer, Creative Village Development, LLC, which is a joint venture between Banc of America Community Development Corporation and a local team led by Ustler Development, Inc.
