    They will play in the NFL stadiums. They simply roll out temporary natural grass over the artificial turf. They did this at the Citrus Bowl (which is also artificial turf BTW) for the Mexico vs Costa Rica game in 2015.

    Totally agree, maybe even have it on both sides of the plaza connected via skybridge.

    Modera is boring, but is it not coming from a replicated template like Skyhouse is it?
  4. This hit the Sentinel yesterday: Tower in downtown Orlando could get $4M in incentives http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-tower-incentives-church-street-orlando-20170627-story.html

    I don't think so, I was agreeing with you.

    It must be the case, otherwise why keep building hotels. It will become even more of a singular destination once they develop the huge 475 acre piece of land they purchased near the convention center. No doubt it will be a 3rd theme park along with its own resorts and entertainment. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/tourism/os-universal-land-purchase-20160205-story.html

    So help me envision this...the hotel will basically be surrounded by a landscaped wall on all sides?
  8. This is insanity. In 2010, my wife and I had a 1320 sq ft 2/2 at the Paramount for $1650. Granted that was during the recession, but this is almost half the size unit for the same price.
  9. Some of them are doing loans like Trustco Bank. They have stipulations that the building/complex must be 75% owner occupied, that it is not an apartment conversion, and the association is not in debt. The other option is to go with an FHA loan which will finance condos, but you have to pay PMI with those. Something like these lofts though...not sure how they would be treated.

    I grabbed this off of http://www.cityoforlando.net/. Seeing them as real flags, I like the 6-star and the swan. I really do not like the other two.

    All I can say is that I am glad that I grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s going to malls, music stores, video rental stores, electronics stores, etc. I will always have those memories. It's tough watching it all die. I guess I will always have this thing in my pocket, though, right?

    Oh yeah for sure...that is one reason I didn't vote for this flag.

    I wouldn't be too upset with any of these actually. The upper left looks almost identical to the original. I was hoping for thicker lines. On the upper right, I agree with orange87 that the side bars should be wider to be symmetrical. I actually hated the original version of the lower left, but now I think it looks pretty good. Finally, I like new version of the fountain one...the original one's whale tale was really bad. I think it will win again.

    Put one of those WDW annual pass stickers on his side and I'm in.

    New Orlando Flag

    True, it's just a cool looking design, but not necessarily unique to Orlando. The problem is that we don't have a whole lot of iconic things to pull inspiration from. You are left with the fountain and mouse ears as symbols that you could hold up and someone might say "Orlando" as the response.
