Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
Location: Orlando, Florida
Total Size: 2,160,000
Total Cost of Work: $400 million
Client: Gaylord Entertainment
Designed to emulate Florida’s lush botanic and aquatic environments and architectural styles, Gaylord Palms is modeled after regions unique to the sunshine state, including the historic, old-world charm of St. Augustine; the festive spirit of Key West; and the Everglades. The property is sited on 60 acres directly outside the gates of Walt Disney World, and is the only facility in the area to combine hotel, convention and entertainment amenities under one roof—and it’s not your typical roof either. The project’s signature feature, a four-and-a-half-acre, glass-covered, climate-controlled atrium soars over the resort, creating an enclosed entertainment experience with restaurants, retail and attractions.
