Here is a new angle for you.  This is the demo of a building at the ORMC campus making way for a new orthopedic tower.

The heart of downtown.

Sunrise and a bit of crane

crescent - probably not due to the bell south building but will be taller than the camden apartment building in the foreground 

 

rida office phase 2 -- having previously worked on the 13th floor in the Bank of America building, can safely say yes

It would be nice to see something that would help "connect" the RIDA project to Firestone, Camden, the new hotel, Steel House ect. There seems to be a weird buffer between uptown and the CBD on Orange in that area that makes it very dull compared to the rest of Orange ave, the O Sentinel complex probably has something to with that as well.

Too bad Winnie Palmer isn't more high profile & closer to Orange Avenue.

 

All the cool looking buildings in that area are set so far back off of Orange Ave they are barely visible.

I think Winnie was originally supposed to be 20 or 22 stories tall, and they scaled it back b/c they didn't need the space.  Now, look at what FH South did with Ginzberg Tower- they only built out the first few levels and left the rest unfinished until they needed it- now the rest of the floors are built out I think.  Winnie should've been taller.

 

But that's the story of Orlando, isn't it--- "should've been taller."

If you drive by the Crescent construction site, it does have an impressive footprint.  it will be impressive ala streetscape view.  I do agree with a prior poster that a Skyhouse-type structure should've gone there.  Maybe the mere fact that "a" building is being built there for the first time since God knows- will help break the drought and allow maybe a re-design for the future buildings on that tract.

 

I doubt the hotel will increase in size.  But maybe the office building will.  Maybe they can build another multi-use tower with parking underneath like Dynetech and get the height up there.
