  1. Lucerne Promenade [Proposed]

    That's so Kuhl Man!
  2. Orlando Citrus Bowl Stadium [Renovation Completed]

    So lets create new ones.
  3. True, but 55W was well out of the ground and you could visibly see the cranes moving in real time.

    Is it demolition by neglect? In some cases yes. Is it demolition by neglect due to regulation and prohibitive costs? In some cases yes. As I observe, many times "preservationist" puff up their chests and cry foul long after any of them even tried to "lifted a finger". WDBO was slated for demolition over a decade ago. Who stepped in to buy it out from the owner? Who championed preservation? No one. Also, if you recall, a lot of those new "five story" apartment buildings were build on vacant lots. And it's not "nobody's fault". It's the fault of the people who'd rather sit around and complain after the fact than actually doing something.
  5. This is also the man who stated construction on 55W had stalled and wouldn't be completed. I called and told him to step outside of the Sentinel Office and just look towards the building.
  6. Lake Eola Neighbourhood.

    I did giggle before I threw-up a little in the back of my throat.
  7. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    I talked to the guys doing the demo. The city asked the owner to do everything possible to save the masonry signage on the front of the building. Last I herd they were able to salvage it. The guy over seeing the demo said the building had been slated to be torn down almost a decade ago. In its current state it was a public safety hazard and the owner decided it was time to tear it down.
  8. I was downtown watching them while they did it. It was very cool to see it done in person.
  9. Other Metro Area Projects

    Its the Winter Park Memorial Hospital on Lakemont.
  10. Drove by this morning. There is a lot of dirt moving than in these previous pictures.
  11. The Yard at Ivanhoe | Mixed-Use [Proposed]

    I would LOVE to live in a loft in the old OUC building.
  12. That was you? I hope you weren't offended when I threw my change at you.
  13. Downtown Orlando Project Discussion

    Well, People in Ocoee aren't very pleased in becoming a new "Pine Hills West".

    The old police station coming down? I wont miss it. I do hope the Magic's Entertainment complex has some architectural integrity to it.
  15. Magnolia Rose | 13-Story Residential [Proposed]

    I say use that curve in the road to your advantage to create a unique building. The Townhomes and Incorporated parking garage can serve as the "step down".
