    This would be great. Hope it happens.

    I'm in the ad business.

    I think the inside needs more decor, that's all. It's awfully bare - however - I'm sure that will change once advertisers and JetBlue move in.

    Publix

    I’d say so. Walmart customers are fundamentally different than Target/Amazon customers. Publix may be a bit of both things at play. In Publix’s case, it may be a case of market research showing it’s not necessary right now. Why invest in something not necessary that may be outdated in a few years anyway? Publix’s strengths are not in its technology but I don’t think it has to be. I’d honestly be happy if they just did self checkout aisles. I don’t need anything else right now.

    Radius | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    As I mentioned before, a condition of approval is putting the brick back to at least the bottom level.

    Radius | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    That was the ARBs final remaining comment pretty much. They want the brick to at least be on the bottom floor.

    Radius | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    Updated renderings in the May 17 ARB. http://www.cityoforlando.net/city-planning/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2018/05/ARB2017-00022report.pdf In reading the report, it appears they are working closely with the ARB to get this done. Seems to be legit. They mention there will likely be new renderings prior to board meeting. Could be pushing to get this done sooner rather than later.

    X Orlando | Three-tower Residential [Proposed]

    May 17 is the next one but I do not see anything for X Orlando on the Agenda.

    Looks like the lot next to the Jackson is for sale. I believe this was originally Phase 3 of 420/520 - guess they're going to stick with Phase 2 and be done with it. Wonder if there will be any interest from anyone for this lot.
  11. I remember seeing that they said 28+ but I wouldn't count on it being much taller. Guess it depends what the market is like when they decide to move forward with it.

    Mills/50

    Yes, please. Lucky's is opening up not too far from there.

    Mills/50

    That place is PACKED (the center, not B&N). Always. It's doing fine. It's not going to change. I don't think it needs to either. I go there constantly. Total Wine, Marshalls, Ale House, Olea, Chick-fil-a, Walgreens, Petco. It's quite convenient.
  14. It's a nice thing for the people living there. Need a quick bite? Forgot something at the store? Yeah - it's going to be more expensive but so are drug stores. I was a frequent visitor of the 7-11 at 55W when I lived there.

    Moving to Orlando

    I enjoy the food you can actually get there. Like Tamale Co. It's just a nice atmosphere if you have a dog or something too. Good to know about Post. I know they're claiming to be redoing the interiors but...who knows.
