Pine Hills Community
The Pine Hills community, located just outside of Orlando, Florida, is one of Orange County’s oldest and largest neighborhoods. It was originally developed in the 1950s as a suburb for workers of the Martin Marietta Corporation. The Pine Hills Community began in 1953 with the construction of Robinswood and Pine Ridge Estates subdivisions. In the 1980s and 1990s, newer housing developments were built in the county attracting residents right away.
With its proximity to Interstate 4 and Highway 408, there are many small industrial businesses in this section of town. The industrial sector located along east Silver Star Road in Orlando’s city limit includes a Frito-Lay and Coca-Cola manufacturing and distribution facilities. This sector of Orange County has some of the highest rated warehouse properties.
Due to its central location, Pine Hills is close to Orlando’s business and tourism centers. Many residents commute to downtown Orlando, less than 5 miles (8.0 km) east, to the northern suburb of Maitland, or to the International Drive, Universal Orlando Resort, and Walt Disney World Resort tourist districts. There is good public transportation by way of the local transit authority, Lynx. Also, the Greyhound bus station is conveniently nearby.
