  1. Orlando has two Fortune ranked corporate headquarters, which is pretty good considering how new of a city Orlando is. Darden Restaurants #385 Tupperware Brands #886
  2. I see what you're saying, but I'd say it's better to have a park under a highway than having homeless people camping under the highway. Not that the homeless couldn't still go under the highway, but I'd say having a park there would make it harder for them to camp there.
  3. PONTE HEALTH Formally Pushes VERTICAL MEDICAL CITY Through the FAA Process, to Break Skyline Limits in Downtown Orlando Article: https://www.pr.com/press-release/744381 The article also says the three towers will be 300/450/540 feet tall.

  5. I don't know how I missed that either. I thought this was going to be 325 feet. That's what pretty much every article says. If it's 426 feet for 26 floors, that would make the average floor 16.4 feet which doesn't seem right. But if it's 326 feet like most articles say, then it would be 12.5 feet which sees right where it should be. I would love to be wrong and for this to actually be 426 feet though.
  6. The reason I thought it was 28 was because they originally said 26, and then we didn't hear anything about this project for a while and we thought it wasn't going to get built. And then when they finally started talking about it again, I thought they said they decided to make it even taller than originally planned, 28 floors. It's possible that I'm just remembering it wrong.
  7. The title of this thread says 26 stories, but some articles have said this will be 28 stories. Do we know for sure if this is going to be 26 or 28 stories?
  8. Orlando Magic Entertainment Complex [Proposed]

    I think the fact that the team has generated millions if not billions in tax revenue for the region over the years and has been successful as a team is more important than the owner not being enough of a social justice warrior.
  9. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Has anybody heard anything new about the Orlando Museum of Art moving to downtown lately? The newest article I can find about this is from 2015.
  10. Good point. I think the three towers are 20/30/40 stories tall. So even if only the shortest tower get's built, it's probably about the same height as Modera Central, and that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
  11. Orlando Magic Entertainment Complex [Proposed]

    I think an occupied homeless shelter being right where they're supposed to build seems like a more plausible explanation of why construction hasn't started yet instead of the vague "they're dragging their feet." I also seem to remember reading that the Orlando Magic actually donated money to pay for the shelter to move too. Why would they do all that if they weren't serious?

    Really? How do you expect them to build when there's an occupied homeless shelter on the lot where they're planning to build?
  13. Orlando Magic Entertainment Complex [Proposed]

    According to the Orlando Sentinel, the new homeless shelter isn't expected to be completed until April. So that may explain the delay on construction of the Orlando Magic Entertainment Complex. I'd imagine we'll hear something new this spring and maybe construction could start before the end of the year.
