Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. Orlando Ballet, Dr. Phillips Center reach deal on Steinmetz Hall https://www.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment/arts-and-theater/os-et-dr-phillips-center-opera-ballet-philharmonic-deal-20191022-k2vutmj5wfd33pq476penscx6q-story.html "Opera Orlando and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra are still in discussions, an arts-center spokeswoman said, but “we anticipate signing agreements with them soon.” Great news!!
  2. You prob already know this, but Space Mountain was supposed to be completely re-tracked back in 2009 when it went down for its last big refurb, but that got the axe due to the recession. I have been thinking that once TRON opens, Disney will have no excuse not to close Space Mountain and do a proper full ride system replacement. If they do, I would want either a straight track replacement of our existing 2- track layout with modern track and trains with audio, or swap out the entire interior with the exact ride Disneyland has (even though it wouldn't utilize all the space). I'd be good with either of those.
  3. ...it wasn't zoned for Edgewater High....
  4. You've been since the renovation? There was nothing horrible about the bathrooms when I went.
  5. Independence Lane in Maitland will be Park Ave II if they can keep re-developing south of Packwood and end at Lake Lily.
  6. 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.
  7. Totally agree, maybe even have it on both sides of the plaza connected via skybridge.
  8. Modera is boring, but is it not coming from a replicated template like Skyhouse is it?
  9. 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
  10. I don't think so, I was agreeing with you.
  11. 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
  12. So help me envision this...the hotel will basically be surrounded by a landscaped wall on all sides?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
