  1. We've gone from Flat tops to Mohawks.
  2. While I like the "Front Yard", the traffic noise, site lines, etc, are just horrible.
  3. What's wrong with classical music? If you really want to scary vagrants away blast some Schoenberg.
  4. I should say, I know its been discussed as a new performing arts center.
  5. I believe Lake Highland is interested in it.
  6. Well, that's kind of sad. I have many great memories attending functions there, but, it is antiquated . It was funny though, when I saw a woman passing out flyers and campaigning to block the tower she was screaming that it would cast a shadow over the park. I replied, "Well, we should cut all the trees down since they cast shadows over the park too." I just liked the proposal because it cleaned up that corner and enhanced the Spivey Fountain area.
  7. *Buys Spencer another drink of practical reality. Heck, make it a double.* Lets be honest, the NIMBYS overruled what's probably best for the city. This "butterfly garden" is a fools errand. And lets not get over the symbolism of older white women, dressed in all black, with a fake rendering of what that corner will look like. I'm all for the symbiology of wearing black, but this is a joke. They are girding their loins and protecting what little" heritage" they think they might be apart of. I like the Rosalind Club and have been to many of their events, but if they put their money where their mouth was, like all the other decenters, this would be a non issues. Until then, it's entitlement NIMBYISM.
  8. "Justification" Much? If they honestly wanted to expand the park, there would be negotiation about selling the land and moving the building.
  9. I support the Rosalind Club, and have been to many of their Debutant Balls and Functions, but if historic buildings must be torn down or moved for the sake of the park, theirs should too.
  10. From Facebook: I'm going to be the hold out here. This plot of land will be isolated from the rest of the park until the Rosalind Club moves and the other buildings are torn down or moved. I also hope the city hopes to relocate the private business owners in those buildings. I am all for expanding the park, but in a responsible manner. Allowing the Rosalind Club to remain (I fully support moving the current historic building) smacks of favoritism. This area is an already under utilized portion of a thriving urban park and I fully support its expansion, but in a responsible way. With a Master Plan that doesn't change every two years. Until then, we will have a random park bench with grass and a private social club (with a foreboding black iron fence surrounding it to keep people out) and two historical buildings that are now expendable.
  11. I asked a few questions on the facebook post about the acquisition of the property at Rosalind and Central. I asked, "Are they demoing the historic Masonic Lodge, the historic house next door, and moving the Rosalind Club?" My questions were deleted. Also the "rendering" they showed was a grassy area with sidewalks. I guess a big win for..... well lets face it, anyone with a view of the lake and the antiquated Rosalind Club.
  12. This "Village" certainly" isn't "Creative.
  13. Unleash the FULL and AWESOME POWER OF....... mediocrity.
  14. Am I correct in remembering that the Dupont Center was supposed to be a twin tower development originally?
  15. The original building was supposed to have a twin.
  16. I was just in a discussion with a potential buyer of the Old OUC plant. What they want to use it for would be awesome.
  17. The Rosalind Club, a ladies club organizedin 1894, constructed its first clubhouse onthe current site of the Angebilt Hotel. In 1916,Orlando architect Murry S. King designed thisstructure overlooking Lake Eola. In 1919, thecity renamed west street to Rosalind at thesuggestion of Mayor Giles.Plaque sponsored byThe Orlando Community Redevelopment Agency So the current building is 105 years old.

  19. Or what it does every time this time of year when they switch from winter to summer blend.
  20. Where dreams come to die?
