  1. Hourglass District

    So I have a habit of eating breakfast at Wawa every Saturday morning. Since this road diet, I've been my bike from my home over by Southern Nights to that Wawa. I'm one of those one less cars. Now that Claddgah is open, I have a nice place to bike to from the house. I really wish Bumby had bike lanes though.

    She did make this statement 3 days into the start of the study which was annoying. She didn't give it a shot before she went off on it. I noticed the people against it were very vocal. Being at the event on Saturday there was a number of people there that seemed to just be against bikes or were just spouting out lies about the project. Ie. one person said no public meetings were held ahead of time and noone contacted the business owners. Both are false statements. My understanding from talking to the engineers at Saturday's event was that they were limited in what they could experiment with because they had to put everything back in a month. Curry Ford wasn't their first choice but made sense because it was both jurisdictions city and county and Hourglass and Curry Ford West District requested something be done. Crystal Lake to Michigan and to South was the alternate free route while SR 408 was supposed to be the alternate for people further away. However one person at the event said from now on he'd be cutting through the neighborhoods even when the road is reverted back. I asked him how fast he was driving through the neighborhoods and he admitted he's going faster than 35mph. The whole point was to slow people down and many are upset they can't go 50 anymore. [email protected] I've already provided my input and got a response within 24hrs thanking me for my input and pointing out individual points that I had made. So I know they read it.

    Toole's have been expanding and seem to have found their niche. Just far enough from the mega hardware stores and cater to the people who need something quick or don't want to deal with a Home Depot. FYI Toole's didn't get the old Winn Dixie spot on Bumby so they're taking over the Southern Vacuum spot adjacent to their store. Southern Vacuum moved to the old Boost Mobile spot.

    I hit the E Colonial Ale House often. Most of the management moved over from the Waterford one. Its usually packed. Better than Firebirds which always seems to be empty despite its awesome Prime Rib. Despite the sewage smell.

    You and I have to live right next to each other. I got all 3 of these too.

    It'll be service retail. Food/Nails/Hair/Tan/Cleaners.
  7. I4 - Beyond the Ultimate [Pre-construction]

    I-4 North of SR 44 and I-4 South of SR 528 officially has space for HSR in the median as of right now. It used to be as far down as Lake Mary, but they've taken it out.

    They're either homeless or they're those shoppers we had seen in the Cambria rendering. Edit: As a sidenote, is my orientation off or are those cars all driving the wrong way on Rosalind?

    If +1 couldn't get the preleases, to build that tower on the SE corner of Livingston and Orange, I doubt there's that much demand for law firm office space. Most of the law firms I see reside in their own buildings along Magnolia. Makes sense as some of them probably existed when the Courthouse was where the History Center is now. I would like an urban Target as much as the next person, but with the closing of the Target in Pine Hills a few years back, as well as the Kissimmee Target (due to the decline of the surrounding neighborhood), and its proximity to SODO and E Colonial, I just don't see a Target going in there. A Walmart Neighborhood Market or even a Sprouts I could see. Sprouts is already coming into Winter Park and Oviedo. A downtown location makes sense. I had previously envisioned an urban Winn Dixie, but they had to go and be Winn Dixie and go bankrupt again.
  10. Some of use remember the days of Orlandoskyscrapers.net. Also I wonder how much of this Suntrust move is about visibility. How much of this view is lost to ramps and CSP?

    Carbon copies of the building in each city? Worked for Skyhouse.

    The vertical curve of the highways have specific height/slope requirements for the speed. The new speed limit through downtown will be 60 mph which requires flatter curves. Also tying the ramps to the highway may be part of it. SR 408 will have direct access ramps flying every which way through downtown. The current high piers isn't even their final form.
  13. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    I know someone on the MPB. Seeing this thing tower Ivanhoe from my office, I asked him how he felt about the Yard. He said he felt it looks bigger than he initially thought it was going to be.

    Chipotle AND Starbucks? Either they got some serious retail heft or some graphic designer stole a bunch of logos off the internet.

    So our whole neighborhood got these today, but the public meeting was April 5th? So did they just plan that poorly that they sent the notices out after they had the meeting?
