    Zoi House Orlando/ New Tallest [Proposed]

    I think FAA still has to bless this, per the article.

    Zoi House Orlando/ New Tallest [Proposed]

    It doesnt have to be the next Shanghai Tower or the Burj tower, but to be the tallest and representing a city, I am expecting a Frost Bank tower, US bank tower or RSA tower, instead of a boxy generic every city basic design. Cant believe they are excited for some off set balcony. Even the current Suntrust building has better distinctive and recognizable feature than that. Orlando deserves something better.

    City staff, board wowed by new design for Zoi House skyscraper in downtown Orlando https://www.growthspotter.com/news/downtown-orlando-developments/gs-arb-meeting-20181115-story.html#nt=oft03a-1la1 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- hmmm...I am thinking they have low standard or doesnt travel alot out of USA.

    Basic. Can the ARB recommend them to give Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid or Calatrava a call? Are the red mark means they are making this building to have curve exterior instead of rectangular block??

    The Brightline

    kind of off topic but there are people think that Orlando is on the ocean and they think that they come to Orlando to go on a cruise. A friend of mine in the hotel industry told me some guests insist that they came to Orlando to go on a cruise and when he told they have a bus that take them to Port Canaveral, they said they dont want to to go there.
  7. It is odd to me to spend 9 million to build a bridge to cross one intersection to begin with. I just hate to see wasted opportunity to create something unique. This along with not building dedicated bike lane at Creative Village for long range plan when you building it from scratch or putting loading zone between the lake and the store when you can have a lakefront facing store amazed me.
  8. Well the bridge is mean for recreation and some sort of icon to the city, they can at least put some money and design into it especially it is such a short span. What is a million dollar more to a couple billions highway bill? Now it is going to become a backdrop of people political statement, even worse when they put pop can to spell words, both democrats and republicans. This is my fav part of the Highline...it is a "place making" design.

    Amazon HQ #2 To Orlando?

    oh we always call it Lake Nono among our friends because it is a no man land, too far from anything and a giant sprawl.

    Amazon HQ #2 To Orlando?

    So Crystal City and NY got it. Anyway, when I lived in Arlington, Crystal City was just a commuter town with suburban sprawl. Now an urban approach to make it walkable has paid off. Yet we are still building suburban sprawl city like it is a trend ...ahem Lake Nono.
  12. Those cage design is so dated already. Imagine if they but cages all along NYC High Line.
