  1. Winter Garden may pause new permits for alcohol sales in future downtown restaurants https://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/news/2022/05/13/winter-garden-may-temporarily-restrict-new-alcohol.html Would be awesome if downtown Orlando do the same...
  2. Great, that will definitely get visitors to downtown to visit Taco Bell.
  3. I rather them use the money to move Millenia Mall downtown.
  4. But we still have a surface parking lot after so many years....
  5. A mayor can shape downtown, we need someone that have the will to make Orlando the next Miami/ Austin.
  6. For the same reason, i was talking to my friends that it is time to get a new mayor not name Buddy. They all think i am crazy. Hence, downtown Orlando will only be playing catch up and not a leader.
  7. A Lululemon probably will have more success than this Michael Jordan store. I didn't know there are people who are still following Michael Jordan.
  8. Isnt the arena can essentially be a large conference room?
  9. why cant they stack phase 2 on top of phase 1? Now, I hope the former lynx station get developed.
  10. Yeah, sucks that we don't really have a star offensive player that can take over the game. We are one reliable offensive player away from anything....
  11. Agreed. Also, downtown Orlando also need to upgrade itself to make it attractive.
  12. Miami has Jimmy Butler and then there is Chicago. No 7 could easily end up number 9.
  13. ahem...Park Ave...and nothing wrong with Republicans.
  14. I know it was just pre-season game, this is going to be a brutal season. We have no offense. When Fultz, MCW, Bamba, Ross and whatever is out there, Ross is the only person that can score.
  15. No, people want to live in downtown paying suburban rent. The cost of maintenance for a sprawling apartment complex is vastly different from a shiny high rise. That is like me wanting to find a house in 32789 for 350k or wanting a restoration hardware furniture at Ikea price. It is supply and demand, if people want to live there, they have to pay the price..
  16. We talked about it because we can count the amount of towers being built. If it is in Miami, we wont even notice it.
  17. I think the issue is people want to live in the city center and want to pay low rents. They can move to Metrowest and Altamonte for that kind of deal.
  18. Funny, the "piano key side" is the side that I like and would love to see the entire building of it and remove the glass side. It is very mid century feel and impactful. But the bigger issue of this building is the combination of both and the disproportion of the entire building. It would definitly help if the narrow part is 10 stories taller. If the building does not have the "piano key side" and replaced with glass, it will look even more weired
  19. I ate there couple of time, it is just fair. Disney has way better restaurants.
  20. Hopefully a private art museum like Morse/ Perez. I can wish
  21. CV started out by selling us the idea of it would be Portland Heritage Square, Boston Faneiul Hall....an area with high regard in archictecture design , creative and inspiring. It was mentioned that they have special design guideline and all other grand rendering design. But in reality, there are no dedicated bike lane, entire development still extremely car centric, lousy architecture asthetic and the entire thing look like it can be anywhere close to UCF east campus/ Lake Mary office park. Orlando deserves something better. At some point, we were mentioned in the same sentence as Austin during the early 2000s, they have totally left us in the dust.
  22. Here Are the Urban Highways That Deserve to Die https://getpocket.com/explore/item/here-are-the-urban-highways-that-deserve-to-die?utm_source=pocket-newtab ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As cities around the globe are finding ways to remove highway, we build them bigger, wider and taller....
  23. Typical Orlando style.....grand plans turned into plain Jane results.
  24. Eyes on the Street: Cheesesteak restaurant opening downtown https://bungalower.com/2019/09/18/eyes-on-the-street-cheesesteak-restaurant-opening-downtown/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What!!!! Not a Taco shop with beer???? How did this happend!!!!!!!!
  25. sunshine

    Under i
