  1. 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.
  2. UCF News

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    As a HS grad from the area, I concur.

    Change by neglect. Kill off the culturally accurate entertainment, which was popular BTW, but more expensive than kids in fur or animatronics. I guess they'll still get the hospitality majors from the countries represented and no one will mind the cultural appropriation. Truthy over truth.
  9. Waiting For Godot...er, Downtown Retail

    I miss the days when empty retail space downtown was taken over for the Fringe theater festival.
  10. Magnolia Rose | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    Is this place to be thought of as lower income residents or just younger with all the studios and one bedrooms?

    And provided shade and rain canopy for people and 120 degree cars....

    You are correct in the JYP location. Mid-size (for Orlando) convention space. The only difference between the Ritz and the JW as far as I can make out is the fixture design (JW - modern-boring, Ritz - Edwardian-esque) and the color scheme both of which is also reflected in the uniforms/costumes of the staff. The transition happens abruptly in the convention space between the two. Bonnet Creek hosts another such pairing of Hilton/Waldorf Astoria and lots of room in that neck of the woods to build more. I would expect more hotels. The expansion of the parks not only offer new and more attractions, but also adds more guest capacity. Operations folks while still having the hand clickers to count guests engaged in streetmosphere acts, know to the second guests engaged in queued rides. The more capacity of guest engagement, the more guests per day in the parks, the more beds for those guests at night. I would also expect the studios parking lot to be expanded.

    Sooooooooo. Cricket anyone? The OBJ sent me a tease (b/c I don't subscribe) talking about a professional cricket league and stadium here in O-Town. Searching led me to Dallas BJ without the paywall. Besides Dallas talk about DC, NJ, NY, GA, and I forget the other two. Surprisingly not Detroit. Making it a summer league. Here is a March SB Nation that talks about the league and the principal investor: https://www.sbnation.com/2017/3/1/14725986/jay-pandya-interview-cricket-usa-2-billion-investment But for the speculation (unless OBJ said where) and desire for what location it is to be built. I fear Lake Nona, but I hope around downtown. But where? Sorry, here is the link to the Dallas BJ article with rendering: https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2017/07/17/texas-on-tap-for-new-u-s-cricket-stadium-with-help.html

    Would've been nice, but with CG, who needs to blow up an old building? Plus with the lack of tax incentive for motion picture/television production in Florida, no one wants to shoot here. (Thanks Gov. Scott. Guess he hasn't figured out a way to make money personally from it).

    People aren't filling the seats as much any more. Even Vegas is closing many of the Broadway style shows. Profits don't happen, entertainment goes away. Like Disney World where you couldn't go 5 minutes without running into a live performance have replaced all those groups with either nothing or character interactions.
