Bonnet Creek Resort

Orlando, Florida

KUD provided Development Services and a Completion Guaranty for a $425 million resort project.

The 1.8 million square foot hotel complex is located on 23-acres within the Bonnet Creek Resort adjacent to Interstate 4 and the entrance to Disney World. The project includes a 1,000-room four-star Hilton Hotel and a 500-room 5-star Waldorf=Astoria Hotel, the first new Waldorf=Astoria to be built since the original in New York. The complex features amenities such as the Guerlain Spa, a 40,000-square-foot formal pool area, a 1.8-acre family water recreation area and a myriad of meeting and conference options — all overlooking the Waldorf=Astoria Golf Course and Clubhouse.

KUD’S DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT SERVICES AND COMPLETION GUARANTY PROVIDED ASSURANCE TO LENDERS FOR DELIVERY OF A 1,500-ROOM LUXURY RESORT

Our project was an extremely complex undertaking, not the least of which was providing comfort to the lenders and leadership to the design and construction team. The strength and experience of the KUD staff was a major reason for the success that we enjoyed in the development of our project. It is unlikely that this project would have gone ahead without KUD’s participation.
