    Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Obviously I don't follow the downtown construction like many do on this site so I asked a question about the property and what the plan is still for it. As for the towers there is the one planned at Central Station across form the courthouse adjacent to Sunrail and another one where the big oak tree is on the empty lot near Orange and Livingston. IF all these projects eventually get done this area of Orange (which feels like a dead zone) will be transformed.

    Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    I'm so glad they are including a garage in this project, not only for the patrons of future events, but also from an infill standpoint. Everytime I'm either on I-4 east or SunRail I always glance over and my heart hurts looking at one of my favorite DT buildings next to a shabby lot. So does anyone have a timeline on the Sentinel Project (I know they moved last printing press out a few months back) and the Bell South redo? These project will all culminate as a catalyst for this part of Orange. Not to mention if those proposed towers with the weird name gets built.
  3. Typical Miami response. I can't stand how some of my SoFlo friends who went to UCF acted like we we're on par with Gainsville and Tally essentially. I like Miami but until the last few years DT Miami felt like there was only really tall condo towers with self contained gated parking garages, surrounded by electronic stores and Joyerias. Now I know there was more, it just lacked a cohesive feel and left me realizing how good we have it up here. Now the last few years have spelled record improvements and now there is so much more in general which helps tie the downtown (Brickell specifically) together. South Beach is cool but like mentioned above, a tourist trap and not very local.

    Other Metro Area Projects

    Ok gotcha. The actual area is surrounded by development meaning lots of people live there and the area is drastically underserved by nicer retail and restaurants so when the plan was first announced I was excited.

    I fail to understand how the Flea Market plan is being considered isolated?

    Orlando Magic Entertainment Complex [Proposed]

    So is it really going to be a parking lot? Wasn't the Amway Center designed to not be surrounded by surface lots like the O-rena was? Why even take a small, and allegedly temporary, step backwards?? Garages>>>>Surface Parking

    From the not so common knowledge I've heard, its supposed to be a big chunk of the CV itself which would make sense since I don't get the impression that there was enough critical mass to move this project forward without UCF.

    Lol true, I guess I didn't put much gravitas in the early reports, but anytime I see said key player meet with others about something, it usually means it's full steam ahead. Either way its a great win for DT.

    I knew this announcement was coming because last week I overheard a conversation between some of the CV key players and all they were talking was DT UCF Campus.

    Orlando Attractions Area News & Developments

    I don't think we'll ever learn. And actually, I think the best project for I drive that never happened would have been the Orlando Thrill Park which would have brought a much needed component to the amusement lineup in town. I just don't get that excited about another hotel, restaurant, and retail mall out there since I believe we have plenty of that for now. I say we get serious about reworking some roads (including I drive) and included in that MUST be either a BRT circulator or people mover. Not light rail, not a monorail, and certainly not widening I drive to the point of pointless exhaustion.

    Uptown

    Margin is low with the kinds of ingredients they'll be using, so volume will have to be through the roof for them most days of the week. With Citrus owing the lunch scene there, Shin also open for lunch next door, and a gastropubby tavern about to open in NORA, I just hope Green Day can find enough business to stay open in such a crowded field.

    I for one am excited to have the time of my life trying their "Eggs in a Basket Case" or perhaps the "Brain Stew". All jokes aside, I don't know how'll they'll survive selling $8 sandwiches. Citrus does well because it's highend and has a better margin. But since I work nearby, I'll give it a shot when I come around.

    Parramore's Future: Highrise Development or No?

    ^I'll even settle for SunRail spur off the current line and frequency over waiting and trying to get a new system built. Also I feel expanding the FREE Lymmo routes is a must.
