  1. Florida woman on Florida women. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/11/arts/television/florida-girls.html?fbclid=IwAR1t67zPslDJZhDvxCgvdT93DorJ0hYX7gri11T4xxMBl0Ys522WOc4b7E0
  2. My unsuccessful attempt at being facetious The current EA rendering is in fact much shorter.
  3. From the looks in early renderings, the EA mock-up matches almost exactly the ideas set forth in the sales pitch.... was talking with an architect friend who is moving to a larger city where he feels architects are more appreciated. I argued that Orlando needs good architecture and thus architects. This building and much of the cities approvals prove that we need more innovative design. The design could go for more than “not terrible”.
  4. I was hoping for the Crossman folks to adaptive reuse the 533 Brookhaven site. I suppose their is still time to revisit that for this phase 3, but you’re so right, the city already has a history of not asking much as far as historic preservation.
  5. I was thinking the same thing! Does Orlando have any linear parks like that? Was just in San Fran, and Mexico City last year and coveted the green spaces that go for many blocks and provide cool vistas. Maybe they can build a courtyard between both the new buildings that will be eventually constructed giving a good perspective when the park is views from colonial side of lake dot.
  6. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/north-america/united-states/florida/orlando/articles/orlando-travel-guide/?sfns=xmo&utm_source=Pulptown&utm_campaign=8c85212396-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_05_13_11_10&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9eb436e7f3-8c85212396-166904883&mc_cid=8c85212396&mc_eid=44b3eb3587. Telegraph UK article Pulled from the Pulptown Orlando Newsletter.
  7. On a walk last night. They were welding the trusses in place.
  8. How long has it been since you've visited. Under Gentele's leaderiship, and with Mulford and Gleyzon curating, the programming has improved significantly over the last 4 years. Especially the Florida Prize Show in June, and the traveling exhibits across the board. It was pretty terrible about 10 years ago.
  9. This is an older (June 2017) article from Architect Magazine about Orlando International becoming a Multimodal Hub for Transportation. https://www.architectmagazine.com/technology/all-aboard-orlandos-bid-to-be-a-transit-hub_o
  10. This is the corner of Parramore and Amelia now.
  11. Two more coffee shops/package houses opened on the south side (south of Colonial). Easy Luck Coffee/ Whipporwill Package in the Almond Milk district. https://www.easyluckorlando.com/ and Aardvark Beverages (Fern Creek and Michigan) Reopened as a Package house, Deli, with Coffee service. You can drink off the taps there or buy a bottle/can and pay a corkage fee. Aardvark also has a Farmer's Market on Tuesdays. https://www.facebook.com/aardvarkbeverages/
  12. Here’s the Plan for Central Park, if you weren’t able to see renderings on growthspotter. http://www.cityoforlando.net/economic/wp-content/uploads/sites/25/2018/11/MPL2018-10069_ARB2018-10032-Central-Park-MPL_final.pdf
  13. Today I made a left turn from Church onto Osceola without stopping as there is no stop sign, and a woman waiting at the stop began yelling at me out of her window as she had started to pull out and assumed that I should have stopped. It is such a confusing and dangerous intersection.
  14. Vividly remember those fruits getting off of I-4. The citrus, the Booby Trap, and the Jai-alai & Circus-a-gogo on 17-92 were landmark status for me as a kid.
