    Vertical Medical City | 40-Story Medical High Rise [Proposed]

    If it’s actually built, it may work. If you read the DTO recommendations and ideas, you will see that it is recommended to build or pursue a museum or cultural corridor, Internationally recognized restaurants with renowned chefs, leisure shopping.. etc. The residents/ patients of this tower are the kind of ppl who would bring class and culture. They are the ones who would visit the DPAC, art galleries, and museums and do the leisure shopping downtown. The city may find that this project actually fits with its DTO goals. Not to mention the he supposed iconic tower they plan to build would also contribute to the skyline. We shall see.

    Could be a good place for a type of urban market. Like the one on Corrine drive in Audubon Park. East end market. Maybe it’s too small.

    Orlando Transit

    I was wondering because it would be a good gauge of how many ppl would use a Sunrail train if it were to ever connect from downtown to UCF main. Just thinking ahead. I assume someone has those stats.

    I wonder how many students used that UCF lynx Red line throughout the day.

    SunRail

    I think it would be a good idea to purchase the track , however someone else speculated a couple of years earlier that the reason it hasn’t been purchased is because once u buy it u have to maintain the track. This increases operation costs. Thus probably Sunrail is waiting for the right moment. Also once that track is purchased there are so many things u can do with it. 1. Opens up the possibility of moving the existing Sanford station into it’s downtown. 2. Extend the line to UCF via 419 area. Which then opens up the possibility of new stations in Winter Springs, Oviedo and of course UCF. 3. Also u can expand from MCO northbound via an existing spur (which terminates somewhere in Avalon Park) and then build towards Winter Springs and connect to the SFB spur. This creates the possibility of stops in Avalon Park, Lake Nona, UCF , Oviedo, Winter Springs and SFB. Thus u would have both major airports directly connected via one line. 4. If they want to be more ambitious Daytona International airport can be connected if they continue building track northward from SFB . Then that opens up the possibility of more stations in Osteen, Deltona East, New Smyrna Beach and of course Daytona International airport. Can u imagine having all 3 major airports connected via one line? Speculating is fun. I’m sure it will cost a pretty penny!!

    If I remember right they worked out a deal gor$69 million. Like I’ve said before If Brightline indeed does get to build to Tampa that can provide us with the track for our international drive and theme parks expansion. We Orlando Metro need to make our deal.

    SunRail

    Correct. I would assume then that the airport will be a busier station or hub. Commuters will then travel past through the airport stop on their way to a connection or transfer to the north and south line. I was thinking that this could also be the start of a new line. stations would be St. Cloud, Lake Nona, MCO, Sand Lake, Orlando Health, Church St, and Lynx Central. This could provide overlap which in turn would be more frequency of trains. 15 minute wait times as opposed to 30 minute waits. The over Lap may benefit Orlando Health because the frequency of trains could solve the unpredictable hours of the health workers at the hospital.

    IMHO and I may not know much but I hope that when it's all said and done I hope that Sunrail actually travels to MCO to the train station vs merely dropping passengers off at a transfer station which are then picked up by some sort of light rail. In the long term that would actually facilitate an expansion of Sunrail to Lake Nona and St Cloud.

    Do u know how many students are actually on main campus? I was generalizing. Shuttle service to downtown UCF is great but that's only a temporary fix and I assume that it will be stuck in traffic. Remember 70 million tourists congested our roads. Why not use UCF as a catalyst for service for Eastbound service. I assume that your not a fan of using 408 as a route for service and prefer one on colonial instead.

    Yeah I was impressed. Unfortunately vacation is over as of tonite and I'm flying back to Florida tomorrow morning. You know I was thinking that another good spot might be where the ballroom on church street is at the moment (on the Lincoln development). Then the market will have access to the Sunrail commuters as well as Magic and Orlando City fans. If only the east end market can be convinced to move there. Hey just a thought.

    I wonder if that connection will change from an express bus in Sand Lake Road station to Meadow Woods.

    SunRail

    I know that brings the ridership back to the levels intended about 6200 with all 17 stations. If Deland was done right that number would probably be higher.
