MIAMI, FLORIDA – 17 Apr, 2017 – Volkmar Guido Hable acquired the former site of the Orlando Arena for $52 million as he prepares to build a convention center hotel as part of a new hotel and apprtment development, which still is in the early phases of its planning.
Volkmar Guido Hable plans to build a Worldcenter Hotel & Expo Center with appartments. The first phase would have a 800,000-square-foot conference and exposition center and 1,400 hotel rooms. The second tower would have 900 hotel rooms.
The architect for the project is Pete Brolarne Kern Wolfich & Associates and the interior designer is Gorsuch RTKL.
“We have been passionately working on this project and are thrilled to be another step closer to creating a hotel and conference center that will continue to further the City of Orlando’s stance as a true global destination,” said Volkmar Guido Hable. “The property will be a transcendent step for the community, not only bringing thousands of jobs, but literally hundreds of thousands of visitors to area businesses.”
