  1. The Orlando Bohemian was built with the assumption that a building would be constructed next door. Never happened...
  2. Craig Ustler owns it. Original plan was to demolish EO and use both parcels to build a 14 story condo tower. It will likely be sold off alongside EO in the near future.
  3. Not fast food, but have you tried Fran's Filling Station for a sit down? Specifically the California Burger? It's fantastic! Pinky's close second.
  4. White noise sleep machine may work wonders. Fills the room!
  5. Bravo should make a new series based on this thread.
  6. Opinion: If you want to understand what I Am Reality is saying, remove emotion and spend some time on these boards (or better yet, city Business Journals) objectively learning about the types of progress currently happening in other "similar" sized cities. I've always used Austin and Charlotte as good comparibles as I chose between them when relocating to Orlando 20 years ago. With that being said - its great to see so many bound together defending a city we all know and enjoy!
  7. This is correct. Brightline is not being built for Orlando residents. Its intent is to lure the 65 million + tourists to visit S Florida for a few days (I still believe for future casinos). Look at the south Floirda stations in comparison to Orlando. They are all centrally located and will have massive real estate built up on site. Orlando gets a maintenance facility and a turnstile for the numbers. Would have been great to go through downtown Orlando but thats not the draw or where the money is in this town!
  8. I believe this may be dead. The lots are all up for sale listed by the agents originally promoting this project.
  9. BBA is quite a bit smaller now since selling their entire flight services side to a company out of Dallas.
  10. Looks like groundbreaking on this will hopefully be Q1 - 2019. Most of the building remains the same with a few alterations in exterior glass. Hope they follow through!
  11. Agree. Or at least a 4 way stop. I feel like drivers race to traffic lights while focusing on them rather than focusing on pedestrians. Also feel like Orlando's answer to all traffic situations is add more traffic lights.
  12. I often wonder what downtown would look like had Orlando's one and only Darden built their campus there. The domino effect from a massive corporate investment sometimes transforms a core.
  13. That would make sense given the aggression and negativity, but sadly no.
