  1. Not exactly. The original developer died during construction. There was a friendly foreclosure and the bank completed construction. I can't recall what the delay was.
  2. Well, it would be pretty silly to build it without tenants. But I though they should have kept the garage until they were ready to go.
  3. Amazon HQ #2 To Orlando?

    I think CV is only 50 acres and UCF has a portion spoken for it. The Tribune site is like 17 acres if my memory is correct. Based on everyone's analysis, it seems Lake Nona and maybe Neocity are the only real choices.
  4. Amazon HQ #2 To Orlando?

    It seems like DC metro would the best option. Specifically, northern va. Before I read any of the analysis, DC was the first city to pop into my head. Raleigh would be a close second.
  5. My gut tells me lake nona or creative village .
  6. Red is Floor Decor and Orchard Supply. Blue the two Darden restaurants . Green Multifamily and yellow is available.
  7. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    They own the garage and the parking lot.
  8. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    The idea is that it is more sustainable to build with wood vs steel or concrete.
  9. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    No, very different.
  10. The renderings must not be accurate. The columns are probably designed that way for design purposes.
  11. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    The church owns that building but it does seem to be a problem, especially on Wednesdays. This rendering looks a million times better.
  12. Is it only on that side of the building?
  13. Orlando Attractions Area News & Developments

    Call me a hater, but trees grow back. And pine trees grow back especially fast.
  14. I don't think it was condemned. Kuhn bought it and wanted to build a high rise office building. That was it.
  15. There is a lot to unpack in these discussions but I will try: I prefer walkable streets with activity compared to height Many other cities have taller buildings because they have more local wealth Corporate headquarters looking for a statement building Orlando has wealth but a lot of it was not created here Columbus has plenty of major companies and generational wealth that allows it to have an interesting skyline Seriously, look at how many big companies are headquartered there (also check out the short north if you visit) Our lack of height is a reflextion of lack of demand Give me a few tenants that would pay high rates and I will give you all a true high rise The FAA would not get in the way with a determined City and developer And lastly, retail has been tough nation wide especially urban
