  1. I’d still take this plan in a heartbeat. Big time missed opportunity for an iconic addition to the skyline.
  2. After the completion of the new Lake Ave., the subject site will be approximately one acre where the applicant is proposing a 30-story, 375 ft. tall mixed-use building with a 160 room hotel, 400 residential units, 15,000 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail and an integrated 460 space parking garage.
  3. Master Plan for a 33-story mixed-use building (338 feet tall) comprised of 129 multi-family units, 228 key hotel with 527,200 sq. ft. of commercial and convention center space, and a 741-space parking garage.
  4. These are the renderings pulled from the July 21, 2020 MPB Agenda. I might be misinterpreting what's going on but it appears as if the developers proposed the tower to be 41-stories and 441' tall but the MPB is asking for it to be 39-stories and 429' so perhaps we are due for some new renderings. These same images appear on Baker Barrios' web site along with a caption stating that the building is to be 41-stories so yes, these renderings may be slightly outdated.
  5. The +1.03 acre subject property, located within the Central Business District neighborhood, is north of E. Robinson St., west of N. Magnolia Ave., east of S. Orange Ave. and south of W. Livingston St. The applicant is requesting Master Plan approval for a mixed-use development comprised of 300 multi-family units, 10,000 sq. ft. of commercial and 88,000 sq. ft. of office. The request includes a density bonus of 91 units (291 du/ac). The proposed height of 444 ft. yields a total AMSL structure height of 548.8 ft. The permitted airspace surface (AMLS) of 549 ft. for the site.
  6. I can't get over how much of an abomination 55 West is. CSP can't block views of it fast enough.
  7. X Miami Hands Out Protection At Ultra; Rents Start In $1200s (Coming soon to a downtown near you!)
  8. My apologies for not cleaning up this thread sooner. I'm not quite as active on this forum as I once was so it's helpful to be notified when threads veer too far off course, as this one did. I moved all of the posts unrelated to Church Street Plaza to this thread titled "Economic Development" in the Coffee House. Let's keep this thread on topic, please.
  9. Orlando airport to name construction contractor for $1.8B expansion
  10. ‘Mr. Downtown’ Craig Ustler plans more apartments
  11. I don't have the ability to create sub-forums but if you'd like to start a history thread, I can pin it.
  12. I moved all of the off-topic rent talk to the Residential Real Estate thread in the Coffee House.
  13. If you guys notice missing/misplaced posts, it's probably my fault. In adjusting to this new forum software, I was trying to do a little housekeeping after getting my moderator controls back (which were lost during the upgrade) and ended up making a few mistakes with regards to moving/merging posts. I'll try to have things corrected as soon as possible.
  14. At least they didn't kill it.
  15. Looks fantastic and like what it should have been all along.
  16. My apologies if he did. I must have missed that post.
  17. Random thought I had as I drove through downtown the other night: How about shutting down the portion of N Eola Drive that fronts Lake Eola Park and turning it into green space, keeping just the east sidewalk for the dwellings and business that front the street? It seems those buildings could be accessed via Summerlin anyway. This would also allow for the closure of the E Washington extension/dead-end by the park's playground. It's not a groundbreaker by any means-- I just think that the park could benefit from expansion and there isn't a lot of room for it so why not do it while Eola Drive is fairly superfluous. A nice peaceful pedestrian lane could be created and through-traffic could be detoured through Summerlin, which is better suited for that kind of traffic.
  18. I-Drive private developer up for helping build Sand Lake Road pedestrian bridge Orange Co. eyes 28 acres by SeaWorld for retail/big box plan
  19. Looks like this building lost its game of Tetris.
  20. I started a new thread for discussion of CNL III here.
  21. Don't make me start a new thread specifically for moderator adulation cause I'll do it.
