  • The Making of Ormond Crossings

  • In 2002, a partnership was formed by the City of Ormond Beach, County of Volusia, and Tomoka Holdings that envisioned the creation of a working/living planned development community featuring a state-of-the art business park, lifestyle town center, and a variety of residential neighborhoods. Thus, a 3,000 acre tract of undeveloped land, located along the east and west sides of I-95 and south of US-1 in the northerly coastal area of Florida, is known as Ormond Crossings. The project site is adjacent to the Ormond Beach Municipal Airport and is bisected diagonally by Florida East Coast Railroad which has existing sidings along the property. Because of its proximity to these major transportation links, the site is an ideal location for all types of industrial and commercial uses.

    The name Crossings is descriptive of the master plan which features Crossings Boulevard, an elevated arterial road that will connect the land uses on both sides of I-95. The interconnectivity of the Business Park, Town Center and residential neighborhoods will make Ormond Crossings a live, work and play community within the City of Ormond Beach.

    The Ormond Crossings project will integrate architecture, signage, landscaping, and streetscaping to provide for consistency among the uses and the development sites in creating an attractive, coordinated, and functional planned project. Significant infrastructure improvements are planned for the site including city water and sewer, major railroad and highway access, high speed communication lines, and a network of tree lined roads and boulevards. The site will also be planned to retain the naturally significant portions of the property and integrate passive and active recreational facilities for both workers in the business park and residents living in the newly created residential neighborhoods.
