  1. Updated Golden Sparrow renderings (sorry if these are a repost, I didn't see them in any threads yet). Really hope this project happens. It'd transform that part of Orange:

    Thank you. My business is 17 years old, I know what I'm doing haha. The only reason I posted the details about the build-out design is because a lot of the people on this board are interested in architecture and design, and what types of businesses are coming and going. An established media company is replacing a bar. That's notable. Our employees are, on average, mid-20s. Very different from the lawyer and bank offices a few blocks away. It's interesting to see the demographic shift on this part of Church, honestly. With Uproar and the co-working spaces on this block, most of the lunchti

    Quite a presumption you made about my company and staff if you don't think we know what kind of work environment fits our culture and business. We've been in the design and construction process on the new space at 55 W for a year now with plenty of input and buy-in from our team. Everyone's excited about the move, but thanks for your advice. [Now remembers why I don't post on this board.]

    Hey everyone, I'm a near-daily reader of these boards but have posted maybe once in the last 8+ years. I appreciate everyone's passion and insight. I wanted to introduce myself because yesterday I moved my company into the big 2nd floor space in 55W adjacent to the bridge. (Bonus points if you ate at the Olive Garden there in the 90s.) Our space is still under the last bits of construction, but after 6 months of delays, we should be wrapped up and fully moved in next week. We're RELEVANT Media Group, a publishing company I founded back in 2000 -- we do a magazine, video, web, podcasting,
  7. No pic either (I was driving), but I too can confirm the very exciting chain link fence being put up today.
  8. Her points make sense ...
  9. I heard on the news the other day that Dolce (the former Club Paris) is already closed? Is that true? Is it part of the the Hilton coming in, or did they just go out of business?

    Does that mean construction is actually starting? Having to drive by their dirt every day and seeing it just turn into a field of weeds, I've gotten really skeptical about this project ...

    There's a red notice on the front door of the sales office announcing a public hearing for a master plan amendment. Does anyone know what the changes are? They've already switched from condos to apartments (though the signage on the sales center still says condos). The rest of the development is retail and office buildings. I'm curious what more they're wanting to change.

    Any idea when construction is supposed to start? Since demolition and the remodeling of the sales office this spring, there's no activity. Are they waiting for a certain sales number before construction starts?
  13. Have people in this town never been to New York or London? H&M is a very cool -- and affordable -- clothes store. (Very popular with people under 40.) Like IKEA, it's a destination store that brings European, modern style to the masses, but only with fashion instead of furnishings. Having an H&M in our downtown would be huge. It'd bring people from all over, which is exactly what our downtown needs: destination retail.
  14. I agree with cloudship. Pseudo-old world European architecture would simply add to the fake Disney-esque stigma that Orlando already has. It's not natural, and would have zero historical validity here. The last thing we need is more styrofoam and stucco facades. We're a young city, a new city, and we need to play that up. We can't recreate Soho because that kind of character evolved naturally over the last hundred years, and we can't recreate Paris because that took hundreds more. We have the opportunity of doing something completely new and original, and high tech Tokyo/Barcelona/Beijing kind

    My assumption is that it's going to be a sales center for now. But that's just a guess.
