Horizon West continues to rapidly grow and is not only one of the fastest growing regions of Florida, but all of the United States. As single-family homes, town homes, and apartments have been built, commercial properties are now being added in to fill the void of the region. The master-planned Hamlin development is balancing the commercial and residential needs at once and the Westside Shoppes is opening with a variety of new restaurants and shops. In addition to these large locations, smaller plots throughout the region are also being developed.
To get the latest updates, be sure to follow Horizon West Info on Facebook.
Let’s take a look at the progress:
Sweetwater Car Wash at Lakeside and Action Gator Tire
The Sweetwater Car Wash opened this weekend off of Silverlake Park Drive and Winter Garden Vineland Rd next to the Pizza Hut and Neighborhood Storage. This car wash features a variety of services and is a great addition to the Horizon West area, as no full-service car washes were available in the area. For information on Sweetwater Car Wash, visit www.sweetwatercw.com.
The structure for Action Gator Tire, which will be next to Sweetwater, has also progressed. The building now has clear outlines for where each garage will be. This auto repair shop will also provide an immense service to Horizon West residents.
