Howland Crossings

Howland Crossings is a new development area of 8.1 acres divided into smaller parcels. Located on Howland Boulevard and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Howland Crossings is the location for The Center at Deltona which is Deltona’s new multi-million dollar community center. Located only a few minutes from the I-4 corridor on Howland Boulevard, this is the perfect location to build and open a business. The City of Deltona, along with developers and partners, is also currently in the beginning stages of building a 1.4 million square foot distribution center right down the road. This facility is estimated to bring about 1,000 jobs to the City of Deltona. The new Halifax Hospital/University of Florida is also located just a few minutes away down Howland Boulevard. All of this amazing growth is sure to bring many opportunities to the residents of Deltona and surrounding areas. It’s your chance to get in on the ground floor.

Equity and EPIC Theatre

Deltona Village

The new Mixed-Use 150 acre master planned property allowing over 900,000 square feet of mixed commercial development, with entitlements already in place, Deltona Village is open for business. Anchored by the EPIC Theatres of West Volusia, which in 2016 was the highest grossing theater of all theaters in St. Johns, Flagler, Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, and Saint Lucie Counties! Amazing potential at this location along the I-4 corridor on Howland Boulevard. Deltona is quickly becoming not only known as a Medical Arts District but a centralized location for dining, shopping, ecological tourism and housing. Deltona is being recognized as the next major business expansion region north of Orlando. On the western side of the Deltona Village property is a proposed 1.4 million+ square foot distribution center and the new Halifax Health/University of Florida is just across the street on the north side. With all of the new jobs, new housing and development, Deltona’s population of 92,000 residents is sure to flourish. Deltona Village is located on the Southern corners of Howland Boulevard and East Graves Avenue, with the addition of 4 acres on the northwestern corner of Forest Edge Drive and Howland Boulevard.
