  1. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    It's two buildings connected by a common garage.
  2. Winter Park & Maitland

    Futhermore, most of the "modern" aesthetic homes going up are custom homes, and the main builder (Phil Kean) is selling them as fast as he can get them out of the ground. As far as restaurants go, the good ones are packed. The bad ones, without a specific draw like drink specials or aggressive marketing, fail - but that's not unique to Winter Park.
  3. X Orlando | Three-tower Residential [Proposed]

    Real retail, or restaurants? I wonder if they don't have some Aramark chains up their sleeve.
  4. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    Buy flags, meat, hippie stuff, get your hair done, nails done, do glass art, work at a creative agency, meet with your union brothers and sisters, do yoga, visit a financial advisor, buy a car, get your clothes drycleaned, buy midmod furniture, plan a function, eat great food, share shop space and tools, and attend theatre/cabaret/burlesque/concerts to name a few things.
  5. I4 - Beyond the Ultimate [Pre-construction]

    I think part of the reason is the level the highway out in general, hills and valleys, while not dramatic, can increase traffic as people slow down because they can't see what's over the hill.
  6. A couple updated shots of Steinmetz Hall coming out of the ground. This is the hall it self, the yellow forms being the envelope, the first vertical wall with snow fencing being where the front of the stage will be, and the farthest wall being the back of the stage. The closest wall here is a continuation of the Wave Wall separating the space from the lobby. The yellow forms behind i will be the interior envelope.
  7. Novel Lucerne [Under Construction]

    From the top of the Dr. Phillips Center event room, looking down Magnolia.
  8. From the Dr. Phillips Center over Magnolia. Those of us who wish it was taller will still wish it was taller. Those of us who think it's too ugly will be happy its mostly obscured by FUMCO.
  9. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    Here are some photos taken yesterday, 4/16. A view of the garage from the north end where Alden Rd now turns left when approaching from Princeton. Garage looking northwest at Midway Dr. - you can see work on the apartments beginning in the foreground. Same location at Midway, but this time looking Southwest. The next construction gate to the south. This is the backside of those same buildings, and the silos are just out of frame to the left.
  10. Radius | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    They should at least continue the glass down the part of the garage that's under the tower. It'd give the terminating vista some symmetry and visually support the tower it self. DESIGN FROM ARB MY BAD PHOTOSHOP FIX
  11. Creative Village [Proposed]

    The verdict is... no curve! In the foreground is the newly constructed intersection for Terry and Amelia, with Ameilia in a straight configuration. The stoplight is old Amelia, with the curve.
  12. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Looks nice, but it says its a conceptual study, unfortunately.
  13. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    I understand that the entire newsroom was recently "laid off" and asked to re-apply for their positions under yet another restructure. I wonder how long the paper will last.
