UnSprawl Case Study: Horizon West

Horizon West, located in southwest Orange County, Florida, is a new community of mixed-use villages designed to reflect classic principles of Garden Cities and New Urbanism.

"Located north of Walt Disney World and other tourist attractions, Horizon West represents the evolution of rural lands no longer suitable for agricultural use into self-sustaining urban environments. These environments will feature mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented communities that provide community schools and parks and that respect the natural environment. By master planning these communities to avoid piecemeal growth and suburban sprawl, the Horizon West concept ensures the villages will contribute to the overall community and regional fabric."
