East Orlando is a large geographical area whose boundaries are generally understood to span from
Semoran Boulevard east to the St. Johns River, including the town of Christmas. It’s north-south borders
would include all of Orange County from the Seminole County line to the Osceola County line. The
Econlockhatchee River sluices almost directly through the center of the region.

It’s an area represented by its own chamber of commerce, which serves the communities of Avalon
Park, Central Florida Research Park, Innovation Way, Lake Nona, the Orlando International Airport,
Waterford Lakes, Wedgefield, Union Park, the University of Central Florida and Vista Lakes.

During the last 10 years, business leaders have spent time and resources to develop an identity for East
Orlando that is separate and distinct from the city proper. They have succeeded in defining the area
as one of remarkable educational facilities, a corridor of high-tech industry, and an area of progressive
residential communities that collectively include some 200,000 residents and 30,000 employees.

East Orlando includes several key employers: The University of Central Florida is now the second largest
school in the United States with more than 50,000 students. Still in various phases of development,
Medical City in Lake Nona is becoming a nationally recognized center for medical research and
development. East Orlando is home to Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation, Lockheed Martin,
Innovation Way; and the Central Florida Research Park is ranked as one of the top 10 research parks
in the country where more than 85 different companies have employees. Finally, the Waterford Lakes
Town Center employs some 2,000 people in full- and part-time positions as the area’s central shopping
district.

Another selling point of East Orlando is that its major residential, commerce and recreational areas are
well connected through a convenient system of roads, trails and expressways that include the East-West
Expressway (SR 408), the GreeneWay Expressway (SR 417), and the Beachline Expressway (SR 528). The
area also has its own emerging cultural identity, with such facilities as the University of Central Florida
Performing Arts Center

East Orlando residents are served by Florida Hospital East Orlando, as well as more than 174 primary
care physicians and 306 specialty doctors.

As Greater Orlando continues to grow, much of the population is shifting to the eastern territory.
According to the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce, the area has seen population growth of more
than 80% since 1990, accounting for more than a quarter of Orange County’s total population growth
over this time. It is estimated that East Orlando will reach of population of more than 265,000 people by
2020.

Careful planning has ensured that much of the area’s natural beauty will be preserved as growth and
development continue. With geographical features that include the Econlockhatchee and St. Johns
rivers, East Orlando provides scenery that harks back to Old Florida. Parks or public lands cover more
than 18 percent of the total land area, or about 12,530 acres. Those lands include the 9,000-acre Hal

Scott Preserve along the Econlockhatchee River.
