ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Orlando Magic's new entertainment complex is one vote away from starting construction after the first phase was approved on Tuesday.

The planning board approved the first phase of construction for the $200 million facility to be built on Church Street near the Amway Center.

The proposal will head to the city council for final approval on June 23.

The plan calls for a six-story building that can hold 42,200 sq. ft. of shops and 121,800 sq. ft. of offices. A six-story parking garage will be attached to the building, according to the agenda supplement.

The Magic also proposes "Festival Plaza," which will include two retail kiosks and three "media towers." Each tower will have seating, art and digital media displays.
