You never hear anything about this here in NO Name Town.

Maybe the ABDers can ask this when they're at Imagineering next month.

I don't know how credible this blog (http://marciodisneyarchives.blogspot.com/2010/11/flamingo-crossings-next-10-years-at.html)is but it claims to quote Dave Smith (dated 11/17/10):

Q: I just returned from Walt Disney World. During our trip, the staff at our time share shared with us that a new park is currently under development and will be called Flamingo Cove. As a D23 Member and subscriber to the Disney Parks Blog, I have not heard or seen anything about this new park. Although this might not be a true "archive" type question, I was hoping you could give some insight as to what the theme of this park is going to be and when it is expected to open.

A [Dave Smith]: It is Flamingo Crossings, and it is not a theme park but rather a lodging and shopping district planned on the Walt Disney World property near State Road 429 and Western Way. The development is planned to be built in phases over 8-10 years, and, according to the announcement, it will feature value-oriented hotels and motels, along with fast-food and casual dining restaurants, and shops offering wares such as groceries, toiletries, and basic clothing.

A grocery store alone would make it awesome! Especially if it can be reached by bus. :thumbsup2
