  1. The federal minimum wage has been raised 22 times since 1938, and your three examples of what typically happens doesn't correlate with reality, only your perception of it. Please forgive me, as writing an essay explaining this phenomenon sounds like a horrible use of my time. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  2. There is a lot to parse though here. Unit price seems to have a much more significant correlation to height then to lake view from what I can tell. I don't see a significant difference between city view and lake, however height clearly has an impact on value, and as it has been pointed out, the lake becomes less appealing as you move away from the gound. This certainly seems true at Solaire. For the Vue, the lake probably has a larger impact due to proximity but even then, only the northern most units truly benefit from this. Again, I think height reigns supreme here. Personally I think the addition of Modera will give an impactful city feel without the claustrophobia, which is what you experience on the city side if you aren't above the two plaza towers. City tower also looks pretty nice in the distance. In my opinion the lake has little impact on price, though I completely understand that the change in scenery is influencing the market. But in my view it's merely adding an artificial surplus which is actually giving the advantage to the buyers, not the perceived inevitable view obstruction. As for the ethics, clearly anyone buying now, knows, or can anticipate what they're getting into. For the sellers that were thinking ahead and listed when news broke, I think the responsibility is on the realtors. I remember when I was considering purchasing a southwest corner unit at the Vue, my realtor warned me that if the Metropolitan was redeveloped I could lose a substantial chunk of my skyline, including the lake view. Ultimately that wasn't the reason why I didn't pull the trigger on that unit, but it didn't hurt. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  3. Currently looking at units in Solaire, found this one on Zillow. View from the 26th floor. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  4. Love the rendering, but probably not as much as the wine slushy guy that operates out of The Metropolitan corner patio area. Should hopefully provide consistent new customers for him, if he can survive till then. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah you're right about that. Waiting for creative village to do something for me. My view to the left is an improvement thankfully Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  6. Obviously I'm in the minority here. But trust me, I'm not going out of my way to be overly critical. I'm simply saying what has always been in my mind. I was genuinely surprised to read peoples opinion of the building. That's the view from my kitchen, i obviously wasn't bothered enough by it to forgo buying this condo. However, it did make me think twice lol [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    Lake Eola Neighbourhood.

    Walked by there Thursday morning and it was fenced off. Saw a forklift pulling up a section of benches. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  8. Seriously? Yes, agreed, Skyhouse Is underwhelming. Totally agree it should be taller. But it looks like a building that was designed by an actual designer while BOA to me looks exactly like a building I would have drawn as a kindergartener. It resembles stacks of cinder blocks, unpainted ones at that. I really don't get what you guys see in it. As for SunTrust. I find the colors a little silly too. I don't hold it anywhere near the same disdain as BOA. To me it just comes off looking dated, which I'm okay with, because I appreciate the attempt. But for me there isn't an excuse for turning 5 year-old's two-dimensional scribble into a giant (Orlando standards) office building. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  9. That empty northwest corner of orange/pine seems like a good space for a couple shipping containers with courtyard drinking/eating area. Something with better atmosphere then a couple food trucks that could seemingly work well there too. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  10. The vue has the same hallway noise issue. Not too bad, but it's there. However, noise from neighboring balconies is almost unreasonable. It's not very often people actually use their balconies, but if someone is having a conversation in a neighboring unit, they may as well be in your living room. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    55 west bros. What about church street bar/ club noise? Always assumed that would be an issue Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk

    I really like star tower also. Build quality does seem superior, though i haven't spent enough time inside to really give an educated answer. I can however speak for the vue. Noise produced on the concrete directly, such as dropped items, heavy furniture moving, drilling etc. does come through pretty well unfortunately. The only noise that I'd describe as "annoying"would be the drilling, which can be pretty loud. If the sound isn't being produced directly on the concrete, such as the TV, music, etc. The walls will actually do a very good job. The windows. From the 12th floor, city view, it's not bad. Club/ bar music is very faint. The train can be loud but it isn't an issue for me, and it's definitely not in the same category as the wall drilling. If one of my nearest neighbors are out on their balcony, the windows won't do much. It's almost as if they're inside my place talking but in a different room. Thankfully, it's a pretty rare occurrence people are actually out on their balconies. My unit wraps around one of the building's stairwells. Thankfully there isn't much foot traffic, but when someone does decide to forgo the comforts of an elevator ride, i am the first to hear about it. The sound is eerily similar to the noise produced by using the stairs in my own loft, which can be scary to wake up to. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  13. Wasn't there a late night Chinese place where Beth's is now or am I miss remembering that? Regarding the traffic light, would a simple two-way or all-way stop sign not suffice? Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  14. I was paying $1700 for a 700sqft studio in San Diego, that wasn't downtown or near the water. San Francisco is worse of course. I agree, there is likely confusion here on rental rates vs cost of living as it relates to local wages. We're definitely not in the top 10 on rental rates. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
