  1. Couple of pictures I took from Winnie Palmer. Looking pretty good. And another vantage point.
  2. Nice pictures and what a beautiful day! I really like the white paneling mixed with the blue glass. Looking real nice

    Lake House - Ivanhoe Village

    Whoops my bad. Guess I just hadn't heard of it. Yeah I thought the SCC Orlando thread was pretty much defunct but it's picked up a bit recently.

    Lake House - Ivanhoe Village

    https://www.webwire.com/ViewPressRel.asp?aId=235035 This was just posted on skyscrapercity, new "high rise" 9-story luxury apartment building on Lake Ivanhoe slated for 2020.

    Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Not sure what you’re talking about. I’ve seen respect and reverence from CNN and NYT, to name a few. Obama himself spoke respectfully about HW and Michelle Obama halted her book tour to go to the funeral. Not everyone is forgetting about the controversies that exist with his legacy, just like when McCain passed. Yes there are people that are crass and inhumane in times like this, but I would say it is nowhere near the norm.

    Huh? Sweeping generalization there.

    One of the most frustrating things about Orlando. Too many chains, not enough unique institutions. I guess it's not part of the culture here yet.

    Do y’all recommend any of these paid sources for general Orlando business and development news? OBJ, sentinel, growthspotter, etc?

    Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Yeah, I agree. I mean, Anchorage #28? I would put Orlando in the mid-30's. These articles always feel so click-baity and something like this is so subjective anyways. Orlando doesn't have any significantly tall buildings (and I don't suspect it will in the near future). I guess right now there isn't a great vantage point that really encompasses the breadth of the Orlando skyline and it lacks a signature building/feature. I currently live in a high rise south of Eola with a nice but incomplete view of downtown from the balcony. Having just moved here from New Orleans, I would say that, moreso than tall buildings, this place needs more hip locales for eating/drinking/listening to music. Having said that, we've been to some great restaurants so far and I'm a big fan of running around Lake Eola.
  11. Some kind of food hall would be great. As someone moving to Orlando from New Orleans, the sheer amount of chain restaurants in the city is a little depressing. I will be living a few blocks from this building and would love some nice, unique places to eat/drink at.

    So my wife and I are moving downtown (South Eola). She will be working at Osceola Regional Medical Center. It looks like the Tupperware station is a little ways from the hospital. Does anyone know if they are planning bus routes, etc to facilitate hospital employees using the Sunrail? Seems like it would be a smart move since the hospital houses the UCF residency programs.
