  1. Might get a DGX or something but doubt we see Aldi or TJoes slide in there. That seems like if you can't find an office user its going to be really hard to fill.
  2. They sold how many tickets to an exhibit they knew or should have known was not real? I don't bet against lawyers when it comes to finding ways to make money.
  3. Board has to be completely replaced too. Just an incredible job by everyone to willfully ignore obvious fraud. Bet some of our fav local lawyers get a nice lawsuit going against OMA.
  4. Weirdly the reasoning actually makes sense now that you've explained it.
  5. Disney really going to take their ball and go home because they have to share access? Even they can't be that dumb right? It would now just drive more traffic to Universal.
  6. It has no parking and they don't want traffic or noise from the project but they are like why doesn't Armiture Works want to open here????
  7. lol With a 35,000-square-foot former library sitting empty in the heart of its downtown district, the city of Winter Park invited the business sector to bring forward redevelopment ideas for the space. Hoping to see the old building with limited parking reimagined into something else — like a co-working hub, small retail or food hall — the city put out a request for proposals, giving interested parties a chance to tour the city-owned, three-story structure at 460 E. New England Avenue and a month to place bids detailing their vision. By the time the solicitation process closed at 2 p.m. Thursday, the city had received just one proposal — much to the surprise of Mayor Phil Anderson. “Wow,” Anderson told GrowthSpotter upon hearing the news. “I was hopeful that we would get more proposals but we will see what this proposal has in mind and we will decide how to go forward.” But the public won’t be able to see what the bid entails just yet. Jennifer Maier, the city’s procurement manager, said the bids are exempt from state’s public record laws for at least 30 days following the closure of the solicitation period. It’s up to the five-member city commission to decide if it wants to give the green light to the lone contender — a team consisting of Harbert Realty Services, general contracting company Brasfield & Gorrie LLC and architecture firm HuntonBrady Architects — or move in another direction, such as starting the bidding process over to see if a second go-around yields more results. Before it gets to commission though, a five-member advisory committee they appointed to assist with this process will give its recommendation. The committee’s first meeting is scheduled for June 30 at 10 a.m. inside City Hall. Damien Madsen, senior vice president and managing director of Harbert Realty Group, declined to give specifics on the proposal Thursday afternoon, but was also shocked to learn that his company’s bid was the only one submitted for the library property. “Are you kidding me?” he told GrowthSpotter.
  8. Haven't been on too many systems but this is my current rankings 1. Hamburg - Super fast and efficient and went everywhere 2. Netherlands - Since country is small going to just put it all as one. Stopped in 4 different cities in a few hours so easy and clean. 3. Miami - It shockingly works and covers a lot of ground and avoids the insane traffic. Needs more frequent trains to reach the top tier. Big gap 4. Rome - Barely need it since its so walkable but it runs quickly and its cheap. 5. Circumvesuviana - Its dirty and they seem to skip stations randomly but I kinda loved it. Also lack of day/month pass is insane considering its a commuter train. 6. Naples - Just a horrible system especially if you are coming into Garibaldi station. Trains run like 1 per hour. Grand Canyon sized gap 7. Pittsburgh - The most useless train system on earth. Just a stupid, stupid plan.
  9. Biden is the most milquetoast centrist I've ever seen. None of what you are saying even makes sense. He is scared of using EOs to actually change things and Congress is sending him nothing to sign. Nothing is happening and nothing will happen because of guys like Manchin. What even is the "center?" The Dems are a center/center right party while the Reps are far right. We have no leftist party in power whatsoever and we likely never will.
  10. Mises and the national debt talk in 2022. Wow.
  11. We really going to argue that we should have demolished a stadium to then build a new one on I-drive? Thats insane. Why drive more visitors out of downtown to an area that doesn't need, want, or really have room for a stadium?
  12. Its a great spot actually. They just installed a new light there too I think for the trail crossing.
  13. Considering the cities that announced parties and such tonight and we aren't one I would bet highly against Orlando hosting. We were always on the cut line at best so would have been surprised to get it.
