  1. This project had the possibility of being very cool. Shame it didn't work out.

  2. We walked to Lorraine's yesterday afternoon (from Plaza-Midwood even, via Independence Park, the Greenway, CMC and Latta Park, enjoying the gorgeous day). While briefly there on our walking break, the place had decent business for a Sunday. My partner and I had two different desserts to share. A group of ladies each had some desserts, and another couple got items to go.

  3. They are a private foundation, but its sad to see money set aside to better the community go into such a lavish administrative compound.

  4. A little bit of Chicago in Belknap sure beats a little bit of Detroit in certain other neighborhoods.

  5. Construction updates: Colonial: Interior parking deck appears nearly finished. Slabs have been poured for about half of the residential space Fountains: I didn't get a good look today but I believe that most framing is nearly complete. Silos: It appears that the wood footings have been finished. Plumbing has been set for most (perhaps all) of the buildings. Slab pouring should be soon. Junction 1504(?): Buildings near Remount are nearly complete on exterior, buildings near Spectrum are merely framed. Clubhouse space (in center near the tracks) appers to be nearly complete. The leasing office (on Dunavant) was packed today around 12:30 and they were taking prospective tenants on tours of the clubhouse and one building (with hardhats). Based on a brief peak I would say that there is a great deal of leasing interest in the complex. The bike / pedestrian path along side Junction 15whatever is now complete and useable but still gated off (you can get around the gates at both ends however). The path is a nice improvement over the old asphalt. Its now wider, flatter and concreat and it matches the stretch fronting Spectrum. It also appears that a sub shop (I forget the name) is opening up in the Remont rd complex where Canine Cafe is located. No signs of pending demolition at the Centro site on Camden and East West.

  6. Some info on the Orange Blossom Cannonball as it prepares to resume service for the winter tourist season. Although this is a tourist train and not a commuter, I have to think it bodes well for getting Lake County folks (bless their predominantly Republican hearts!) to think positively about rail. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-09-08/news/os-lk-locomotive-herbie-20120908_1_herbie-steam-engine-orange-blossom-cannonball http://therailroadnation.com/florida-steam-train-rides-set-to-begin-service/

  7. A few photos from today. Looking north with 5 cranes (not all viewable). Sorry, I was in fact driving and trying to snap. Elliston 23 Hyatt Place: Crane up and concrete work in progress. Omni Hotel Park Central: 31st Ave Connector SoBro from the East Side. Again, while driving.
