  1. The trope I always laugh at is the "rise in productivity means a rise in wages." Those different conclusions drawn from the same data normally come from a cognitive disconnect from established reality. Say it loud, say it often, you can change the reality of people who don't do math well or read much....
  2. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    Green netting is wonderfully susceptible to slitting under a reasonably sharp knife. Plus you help the site by reducing wind load... just sayin'
  3. the Press.

    Interesting they list the Bob Carr Theater which is not a producing entity, and not mention Mad Cow which adds to the Equity week counts. Having AEA performers at Disney and other attractions around town help a lot (dinner theaters). The Shakes of course is our area's crown jewel of local theater. Lots of talent walking around finding side projects help a lot. Like the music scene in Orlando before Disney practically purged live music from the parks.

    ^Will it feature the character "Brazilian Helicopter Pilot" from Inside Out? "Come fly with me gatinha."
  5. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    I didn't mean to compare so much as to say even NYC doesn't rely upon it's large local population to keep things popping. And if they don't, how do we think Orlando can?
  6. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    As I compare Orlando to the cities I visit I believe Orlando is the poster child for the lack of synergy. Other areas use all their assets in support of each other. Vibrant downtowns have tourists and event attendees walking, eating and shopping in them. The fiefdoms that are set up, both private (ie: WDW and Universal working on keeping guests on their property the whole time) and governmental (ie; OC vs the City vs Lake Nona) mean all the nodes of Orlando are 30 minutes by car away from each other. It's not New Yorkers that keep Broadway alive. Chicago would NOT still be running if that were so. Orlando area is a bunch of islands.
  7. Orlando's Hometown National Champions

    Give Alabama some props, they are the best of the losers. A Trumpism might be called for here: I like my winners not to be losers...

    "Maglev was floated..." a tip o' the hat, sir.
  9. Perhaps then Orlando could support more than 1 2200+ seat theater for touring broadway, and a really strong performing arts community, y'know, like Cleveland.

    Now if they can just get the concert hall and theater built.... oh yeah. That'll have to wait until they rebuild the football stadium.
  11. the bottom of the ballroom is unfinished, mostly storage. The secondfloor is the service corridor, but below is just storage. I was thinking along the same lines as a station could easily done.
  12. Amazon HQ #2 To Orlando?

    This possibility got me thinking what is going on with Lee Vista? It certainly looks like it has the room for these sorts of projects but is there some issue as to why nothing seems to happen there? Or is it wetland mitigation for the airport or something?

    McFaddens was really new, right? I thought they had their soft open when I was working on finishing out Sea Life Aquarium.
  14. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Just a quick thing to throw out, I recently read an article and then found more on the trend to go back to wood, but more engineered laminates than straight dimentional. Even +400' buildings are being looked at in europe. Is that the type of materials being used here?

    As a HS grad from the area, I concur.
