Solly Angel Discusses Densification in

Kissimmee, FL


In the Orlando Sentinel, “Kissimmee Is Running Out of Land. Experts Say Denser Development Is the Answer” quotes Director of Urban Expansion, Solly Angel, throughout:

Angel said the best way to gain acceptance for increased density among residents who prefer traditional single-family living is to redevelop commercial areas and reimagine suburban living.

“Along places that are more public and allowing multi-story housing along the avenues that are in more commercial areas is a way to increase density that might have the least resistance,” Angel said.

Another way to reduce backlash is to focus on redeveloping suburban areas by adding more shops that are walking distance from multifamily homes. That avoids further traffic congestion, something everyone can support, Angel said.
