    Likely tifo rigging, smoke setup, etc.

    Hadn't seen people posting anything about what's going on, so.... Construction on the main building including team offices has been started and going at a great pace. Supports for the roof trusses have been installed on the north end of the stadium and the roof is beginning to take shape in that area. Steel now going up on the east side of the stadium. Concrete being poured on the west end of the stadium to continue to complete the below street level portion of the stadium

    There's sitework going on.

    It's amazing to me that there's not one pic of site work going on right now. I guess I have to do everything myself

    The stadium isn't going to be completely U-shaped. There will be seats that will extend off of the east side of the stadium into the south end with the southwest corner having a "party deck" type feature.. This was before the additional funds, Hopefully they close up the south end. I don't like the idea of an open end for a soccer stadium. What they COULD do is make the south end have just lower level seating and a party deck on top of that.

    Those are the latest renderings, from what I can gather. It mentions every feature they said they wanted in the stadium with the roof over the north end, which was what they said they would do if they got the 110 million. The south end will have a party deck as well. The rake on the roof is mega, mega low.

    The atmosphere of the stadium really doesn't have much to do with an elaborate design. You can have a phenomenal atmosphere in old stadiums. We had great atmosphere at the Citrus Bowl, but it was the people that made that happen, not the building. The only thing that would've made it better would be a smaller design, which we're getting with the new stadium. I personally don't care much if it's surrounded by palm trees and has a citrus grove in it, as long as the final design has a roof covering all the fans. The current design calls for an open end on the south side, with a party deck located there instead of seating. Not really a fan of what that sounds like, but it's also supposed to be below street level slightly because they want the steepest rake they can get. Should be interesting. I just want to see the damn renderings already.

    Redeveloping Orlando Executive Airport

    Though I doubt this will ever happen, this is excellent. I have always thought the executive airport serves too small of a market to support how much it hinders the development of the entire area. Really hope to see something change, but I doubt it will.

    Biggest day in the modern history of Orlando. I don't think people can grasp how much this city is going to change once we have this stadium and MLS team.

    Metro Orlando Headlines

    Jeffrey Billman has taken the stance that just about any kind of new development in Orlando has been fraudulent. He's went on record to say that Orlando City management are a bunch of liars and that the new soccer stadium will create no new jobs or positive economic impact in our city. Anytime I see an article about Orlando with negative connotation nowadays, it's usually from Orlando Weekly, and it's 100% always from him. He is ruining the entire newspaper.

    Thank. You. There's so much misinformation about the soccer stadium, it's reaching the point of annoyance.

    These renderings are by Woods Bagot, a developer who is no longer working on the project. They have since been taken down. The actual design doesn't look much like this at all.
