  1. I agree with this. However, the street/sidewalk treatments that this will have should fit well for the CBD. The City does a good job of making developers use the appropriate sidewalk treatments for particular parts of the downtown area.
  2. I can't imagine a more efficient way to park cars. I could not disagree more.
  3. Metro Orlando Airport News

    I thought that the Sunrail station (or at least the space) was being included as part of the current work.

    I'll never understand this $250mm price tag to upgrade 3.5 miles of existing track, already located within a 120 wide City-owned right-of-way. They should have required Brightline to connect to Sunrail before building the MCO station and parking garage for them. Brightline is already planning to extend their line west to the OUC line to build their service yard anyway.

    I hope a future Tampa connection can happen, especially with the new Rays stadium going into Ybor.
  6. The Brightline

    I thought their agreement with the State for the Beachline section specifically prohibited freight traffic.
  7. We're really lucky that we have two huge medical districts just north and south of downtown. Too bad UCF didn't located downtown from Day One.

    Excellent! Fingers crossed.
  9. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    I can't find any information about this permit. Do you have any other details? Thanks.

    I assume that the ARB takes public comments (not certain). They normally do an excellent job of providing design feedback IMO. I think the south-facing wall looks terrible but I'm fine with this, otherwise. Actually, the west-facing wall has the same problem facing Livingston traffic.
  11. Crane was being taken apart yesterday.
  12. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    OMG, I've been very anxious about this one. I walk by it 2-4 times every day. This one will truly change the neighborhood.
  13. It was three on the older rendering but looks to be about two floors on the final renderings, unfortunately. They started to put the forms up for it today so we should know soon.
  14. SunRail [Phase 1 Completed]

    I still don't understand how it could possibly cost $250 million to make a connection to the airport. Isn't the new station at the airport already going to include the infrastructure for Sunrail at the station itself? The Brightline service yard will be located pretty far to the southwest, adjacent to the existing OUC spur line. It does not appear to be very complicated.
