    I like the WP library proposal. When putting one's view at ground level and on a human scale, you won't see half the elements visible from this view of the model. The sweeping arches on the buildings will look quite stunning at a real life scale. Perhaps the interaction with the retention pond could be better, but I don't think it's bad. Many developers would simply stick a building on the shore of a lake/pond and call it a day. Overall I think this is a great design and a good amenity for city residents. And it's light years ahead of the current WP library.

    The NE corner lot has been roped off for the last week and a half or so.

    Agreed ... I worked in the FPR office back when the recession hit and remember Julie's flower plantings bring some of the first affected. Glad to see they're finally making a comeback.
  4. Ha ... I love how their second location will be within blocks of the Sodo Gringos location on Michigan ...
  5. Wow ... Foxtail must have gotten some serious investment. After the location in the BOA Center, the forthcoming Curry Ford store, and now this, things are really looking up for our hometown coffeehouse. A spot near ORMC makes all the sense in the world. Good for them.

    Oooo ... any more details?

    I noticed the GS headline in the Sentinel that the City is requesting design changes. Anyone know what they are?
  8. Waiting For Godot...er, Downtown Retail

    Greenbeat is doing just that. It's still not unusual to see a line close to out the door between 11:30-1:30. I'd have figured by now the excitement would have calmed down. Philly Connection still gets a line, but not that bad.

    I just walked past this today and didn't even notice. Lol. Incidentally, I was on my way to the Philly Connection and noticed as I opened the door they have new hours: closed on Saturday and Sunday. [emoji849]

    I've set my watch to wait for the pushback from Lake Eola Heights ...

    I'm not sure about this. I doubt it was slated for a residential building since it's owned by St James. But someone else may know better than me. Yes. Well, not anymore. [emoji6]

    Here's your bonus demo news for the day: the sad little hut of a building just south of BOA Center is being torn down as of today. Guess that is the other structure that was mentioned by the church. When I left work, about 2/3 of it was down with the south wall still standing. The old bank teller awning is completely down and most of the debris removed.

    The plan made the cafe look like it seats very few people. I'm interested to see who the tenant will be. Regardless, it's a great start for a sadly underutilized space which is awesome news.
  14. Wow, the horizontal mass is much more than i expected. Nice shot, thanks for sharing.
  15. Name your "Top 5"

    Fun stuff ... can you elaborate what "performing" means? My first instinct is for live theater but I doubt that's your intent ... [emoji51]
