  1. Uptown

    I would agree a good walk or bike ride to Lake Ivanhoe Park area is often better as a North Quarter Resident.
  2. Uptown

    North Quarter is pretty dead for how many people live there. Only a couple of good restaurants seem to do well. . . NQT and Shin are great. Everything else seems to struggle. There is a new mezcal place that may work out. I don't know why it is so dead, but always thought a smaller grocery concept could change it somewhat, so that residents walk for trips instead of taking a car. I drive at least once a week to grocery or drugstore or other random thing. We don't need another 7-11 because we got one a couple of blocks away. I don't even know what North Quarter Market is supposed to be. can't tell what is going on there. It's not like a real grocery store with a produce, meat, or bakery section. That's what we want!
  3. The floors have higher ceiling height than regular is what he means. If each floor is double the height of a regular apartments size floor due to banquet space, etc, then both of them together would add up to about 4 regular floors total height.
  4. If you had four hours

    4 hours isn't very long but. . . Obligatory walk around Lake Eola. Rent a CitiBike and ride the OUT up to Winter Park to check out some shops and eat at a nice restaurant on the strip. Ride the Sunrail back down to Church street and grab some drinks or brews at a couple downtown spots.

    More Mama B's. Rolloff dumpster is on site and they took out some of those nasty bushes I was talking about earlier. Good to see! Starting to look better already. I hope they really do something to spruce up the whole intersection, as it is a gateway to downtown!
  6. the Press.

    Per Bloomberg and CNBC, talks are dead: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-11-06/disney-looked-at-buying-most-of-fox-talks-now-dead-cnbc-says

    They are currently working on creating a stacking lane for I-4 adjacent to Steelhouse. Perhaps new signalization is included in that scope of work. I will be interested to see whether they demo and re-build Mama B's building or just renovate it. I am just glad they are starting work on it. Need to redo the "landscaping" out in front of it too!

    MEC would fill in that gap between BOA and the Courthouse (if it ever gets built)!

    My bad. I hope something is coming on the NE corner! Maybe it was just wishful thinking!

    The old abandoned gas station on the Northeast corner of Orange and Robinson where Dyer said they are going to build a park was barricaded off today with no cars in it.

    I like the site concept and layout tying it together with internal corridor and plaza that lead to the lake, and the orientation of the buildings overlooking the park. Not too keen on the Jetsons look of the buildings, however. Perhaps it is more the odd massing and the colors. The big windows could really look good on the human scale when you are on the ground. It is difficult to make a full judgment just from these limited renderings. They had more photos in a Sentinel Article that was paywalled. Maybe somebody can turn off java to get them. Also, guess I should have put this in Winter Park/Maitland thread. I forgot we had one.
