Marriott Vacations Worldwide (VAC) is planning to build new global corporate headquarters in Orlando, Florida in the US.

As part of the plan, the firm has signed a contract with an affiliate of Unicorp National Developments to develop the new 300,000ft², nine-storey building within the proposed new City Center at O-Town West project.

Being developed by Unicorp National Developments, the $1bn O-Town West mixed-use development will feature restaurants, offices, entertainment, retail stores, hotels, high-end apartments and residential homes.

Marriott Vacations Worldwide president and CEO Stephen Weisz said: "As a leader in our industry that includes a collection of world-class brands and businesses, we couldn't be happier to embark on this exciting new chapter of our business.

"It is essential that we centralize our core corporate support teams to optimize efficiencies on one campus.

“We are confident of the expertise of Unicorp on the overall development and HuntonBrady Architects as interior designers to create an innovative and cutting-edge work environment where our associates can thrive in their work life, and we can continue to build upon our recent successes and carve the path for our future growth."

Construction of the new campus is planned to commence in early 2020 and will be completed in 2021.

Unicorp president Charles Whittall said: "We are proud and excited to have Marriott Vacations Worldwide as our largest anchor tenant in this magnificent project. Like all of our projects, it will be a stunning addition to the City Center at O-Town West landscape.

“We are committed to build the best places where people live, work and play, and this will be no exception to our continued effort to make Central Florida the place to be in America."

Marriott said it has worked with HuntonBrady Architects and Finfrock Construction to optimise the new campus’ efficiencies.

Marriott Vacations offers vacation ownership, exchange, rental and resort and property management, as well as related businesses, products and services.
