Hamlin is the centerpiece of Horizon West, one of the fastest growing mixed-use master-planned communities in the United States. In the "new suburbanism" style that is uniquely Horizon West, this sixth village will be larger than the other village centers and act as the "town center" for the area.

The Lake Hancock waterfront area of Hamlin is currently under construction, designed to be highly walkable and integrated into the surrounding neighborhoods via a network of trails and parks along picturesque Lake Hancock. New offerings will be announced here as they are confirmed for this area that will include up to 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, entertainment and hotels anchored by a Cinepolis luxury theatre. 

Once the entirety of the "town center" is complete, Hamlin will have nearly 2 million square feet of retail, restaurants, entertainment uses, hotels, medical facilities, and office space, as well as several thousand single-family and multifamily residences.

Hamlin is Growing!

  • Capone’s Coal Fired Pizza​ 

    Capone’s Coal Fired Pizza, a restaurant inspired by the story of notorious gangster Al Capone, plans to open it’s second Florida location later this year the Hamlin Town Center of Horizon West. The Prohibition era-themed restaurant will be authentic to the type of establishment Al Capone might have frequented, with warm wood and iron accents, exposed brick coal-fired ovens, Tiffany glass chandeliers, a speakeasy-style bar and photographs of the infamous mobster.

    The creative minds behind the restaurant took what was a potential construction problem and made it into a positive. The former elevator shaft now acts as a model of Al Capone’s mysterious vault in the floor of the restaurant with an engraved plaque explaining the story. This feature has proven to be so popular that it will be reproduced in the 6,000-square-foot Hamlin location.

    To keep the authentic theme of the restaurant, a photographer was hired to travel to Alcatraz, where Capone was imprisoned, to capture the essence of his jail cell, which ultimately inspired the look of the restaurant's bathrooms.

    Capone’s is known for its 800-degree coal-fired ovens and “pizza so good it should be illegal.” Staying true to the Italian-American mobster’s legacy, other menu items include homemade pastas, coal-fired sandwiches and custom calzones.
