  1. Emotional stages from beginning to completion proposal > rendering > modifications > city input >construction > halfway > completion
  2. dang, that design looks like what you will find on I-95, not a downtown.
  3. That unsportsmanlike penalty by that overzealous and dumb freshman killed UCF momentum. It surely looks like UFC with all the ejections.
  4. If you assume 8 blocks per sq mile, then the number of workers and residents per city block is 1. Miami 11,993 ppl/block 2. Tampa 7,784, 18.8 bars/block 3. Orlando 4,652, 9.6 bars/block 4. Jax 1,922, 3.4 bars/block Jacksonville area (and Tampa to much less extent), has water bodies that affected the calculation
  5. Eastern Tennessee scenery from Chattanooga to Johnson City is absolutely gorgeous. Western Tennessee (Memphis) not so much.
  6. Home for Christmas I may reminded of how beautiful and coherent the surrounding downtown neighborhoods are, from milk district to Ivanhoe strip. Saw the Yard and man that thing is massive. Definitely a game changer to that area, hopefully for the better.
  7. Unfortunately them losing further fuel the critics argument of UCF schedule. But we can only play what's in front of us. #goknights #chargeon
  8. Downtown SA is very spread out, with lots of surface parking lots. Honestly it's kinda ugly, not as cozy or intimate as Orlando. There are hardly residents living dt, but theres several plans for condos. So it's kinda dead at the street level. Now when you go down a level to the river walk, its like the great gatsby lol. Rich tourists partying and spending money. It's like a different city. It feels like Disney, clean and pretty landscapes, but without the fakeness. As cool as it is, locals do not hang there because the food and drinks are tourists price. Most locals hang out at the Pearl, st Mary strip, Southtown, and rather small gay strip. And yes the Alamo is right dt next to riverwalk. What dt Orlando has are tons of ppl living downtown, but we need to lure more businesses, retails, and yes touristy chains. Designing great blgs and condos is the easiest thing Orlando can do, and we are failing miserably with projects like this.
  9. I live in San Antonio now and even though downtown Orlando is much much more vibrant than SA, the proposed buildings here are far more interesting. The architect for this thing needs to get spanked!
  10. that escalated quickly. I really enjoyed and appreciated the conversation and insights regarding this topic. Hopefully you all can continue sharing.
  11. yikes! that near DC pricing not including a parking space!
  12. ^^thae landscape in the last 2 pics are horrendous. I thought it was an abandoned building behind those trees.
  13. lol, unfortunately I have a cheapo phone. Im sure theres plenty on the Austin forum, etc. That "jenga" building U/C is looking great. I live in San Antonio now and SA feels like grandma's house compared to teenage Austin. One thing Orlando has that neither TX cities cant touch is water, lakes, and afternoon showers. Its sunny 100+ degrees with no options for water activities.
  14. Visiting Austin for memorial wknd, and all I can say is WOW!. The energy, cool districts, architecture, downtown, and skyline (esp at night) blew me away. It really looked like a world class city. Orlando really needs to step up their game.
  15. Baldwin Park near its town center may be a good option too, and very short drive to downtown.
  16. They should name it the Village we inspired to be but surely will disappoint.
  17. I think IAmFloridaBorn meant a tennis stadium at the Lake Nona USTA center, which I agree.
  18. Why is SA forum so dead? Anyways, I may move to SA by May and hoping anyone has advice or tips about the city and place to live. Im looking for at least a 1/1 in an urban setting (downtown?), preferably high rise apt if SA has any? Looking to rent for under $1400 with cover parking. From researching in Zillow, seems like SA rental is pretty affordable, especially coming from DC. Also, I notice alot of awesome proposed constructions in other threads, did those ever come to fruition? Thanks in advance.
  19. This project will happen as soon as Orlando World Trade, City Centre, City Central, The Montage, Magic Complex, Elon Musk hyperloop, etc break ground.
  20. It's technically closed meaning there's no security or the fountain is off, other than that people stroll, jog around that time. And ppl cut across the all the time from parking to bars, condos to condos, etc. Any gate or wall would be the worst of ideas. Anyways, back to Modera?
  21. Still wished that "L" configuration was on Rosalind and Central for greater sidewalk visual impact.
  22. I personally dont think the seller is ethically wrong either. They not hiding anything, proposed plans are available to anyone if they are smart buyers. Heck, in this case, the building is being erected for everyone to see.
  23. The BOA (and downtown) looks so sad by itself from that vantage point
  24. Having played there hundreds of time, make no sense, financially and logistically,to relocate it. And if it is relocated,hopefully its somewhere near business district. Playing with skyline in the background provides a big city feeling.
  25. CLASS isn't defined by money, and definitely not by the type of entertainment.
