  1. That WD is also right around the corner from my house. I agree it'd be a loss for the neighborhood if it were to close (not to mention all the jobs that would be lost) and could negatively impact the positive changes that have taken place in the area recently. However, the store is in a sad state and was eclipsed by other grocery stores long ago. If it does close, I'd most love a Trader Joe's or Fresh Market in the neighborhood, but realistically it'd probably be most ripe for Lidl if they move into Orlando anytime soon. I don't think the residential demographic of the area interests TJ or FM.

    Isn't this the same way Jacksonville is set up, where the city is essentially the county, too?

    A new sign has appeared on the former Wells Fargo building at Orange & Central. CenterState ... assuming it's a bank?

    The "@icloud.com" domain in the contact's email address does little to inspire confidence. Ponte Health can't be bothered to setup a few email aliases with their own web domain? Also: the contact's surname is Ponte. Hope it happens, though! [emoji6]
  6. Kudos - Orlando area folks we're proud of

    Great news and an awesome opportunity for Ruffier. I especially like hearing about their Project One America initiative. For all it's positives for the local LGBTQ community, we DO live in a bit of a bubble in Orlando. It's easy to forget things aren't as easy in many other states.

    Well this is interesting. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/political-pulse/os-holocaust-center-chamber-building-orlando-20180116-story.html
  8. Orlando Fashion Square [Renovation in Progress]

    Am I understanding correctly that- if the DeBartolo deal goes through- there would be two different companies redeveloping this land: Seritage and DeBartolo?

    Maybe it's an issue of poor marketing to the target audience? I agree with you ... Orlando certainly draws its fair share of LGBTQ visitors, so it's odd a club in the heart of that district can't make it happen.

    Probably not my first choice, but I'm glad Cirque will be sticking around.
  11. Florida Mall/Mall at Millenia

    A sales associate at the Millenia Crate & Barrel told me tonight they're closing after the holidays. According to him, the mall didn't want to renew C&B's lease. They've already begun selling floor model furniture at discount.

    Scott Joseph is reporting Two Chefs has closed. https://www.scottjosephorlando.com/news/4163-two-chefs-seafood-oyster-bar-has-closed

    I pass through the BOA lobby multiple times per day. DoveCote has a nice, humming lunch crowd most days, something that wasn't the case when it first opened (and definitely not the case in the space's previous incarnations after Harvey's vacated). They've tinkered with the menu over time, which I believe has helped draw more consistent business. Some of the items on their earlier menus was a little too weird for DTO paralegals and engineers. My amateur observation tells me DC will assume the mantle of "best power lunch" from Citrus given its proximity to the courthouse and it's price point. The real revelation, in my opinion, was the opening of Foxtail. When they were finishing out the space outside the restaurant (inside the lobby) I rolled my eyes as hard as anyone. Overly-trendy decor & seating next to the brass fittings & green granite of the BOA building ... dumb. But sure enough, the hipsters are there everyday working on their laptops and drinking their coffee.

    Any speculation as to what the boot-shaped land Dr. Phillips is hanging on to might be used for?
