Anyone have any news on these two projects?  Are they dead?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Alright, i called Riverfront Equities inquiring about North Orange and was told the website is being updated to reflect changes made in this development. They have revised thier plans of 2 - 20 story towers and that these are now gonna be 2 - 33 story towers and they are supposedly awaiting approval. Keep watching for the website update. Marc

The 801 N. Orange project(8 story office building off of N. Orange and Park Lake) has a new sign they just put up yesterday. It shows a picture of the building, no other info other than contact information. But still looks like this is a go.

Ouch, tell us how you really feel. I know it is hard to get excited about this one due to the lack of info and the design is abit lacking. They are not identical twins however as the northern building is more broader.

I think they are equally broad but one has an E/W orientation and one has a N/S orientation.

While researching (googling) North Orange, i found that this project was heard at MPB meeting on May 21, 2002 and was at that time called "Remington Apartments" at 759 N. Orange Avenue and the applicant was Jay Royall of Royall Construction Company. Here is an excerpt:

MPL2002-00003**, JAY ROYALL, REMINGTON APARTMENTS Request for Master Plan approval for development of 276 dwelling units with street level retail and parking structure. The subject property is located at 759 North Orange Avenue and consists of

I think Jay Royall is working on the Emerald Beach Resort project in Panama City Beach with Riverfront Equities

So we can add an extr 10 floors to the prelimenary design, with (hopefully) a better look. I really expect this project to bridge central business distrist and uptown, but will hopefully do it in a tastefull design.

how about ivanhoe?

I have been trying to talk to someone at GDC Properties about this but haven't had any luck. I am really excited about this project. I like the footprint being small and the buildings being so tall. I think this will definitrely look good at night driving south on i4 or west on Colonial from Mills/Bumby. I'll keep trying. I just dont think they take an urban enthusiast like me seriously! :w00t:

I got an e-mail reply from GDC, here it is;

The two towers will be 37 stories not sure if they're going up

simultaneously or not. We do have a recent rendering of the property.

If you have further questions let me know. I will find out about how

the

towers are going up.

Did she send the rendering of the property? Is this one on the other side of Ivanhoe, or will it be on the downtown side? So many projects (never thought I'd say that about Orlando!) I get confused...

Nice. I noticed when driving through downtown last night that there is now a sign on the site with a rendering of the building. Just another good sign.

These are early designs of Ivanhoe back early 2004 when they had (1) 31 story residential tower planned at 857 N. Orange and a (1) 22 story (225 feet) mixed used tower at 899 N. Orange. This plan eventually was changed to twin 31 story towers and than late last year in November they proceeded to go before city planners and ask for the plan to be increased to twin 38 story(420 feet) towers. Well the final product should be twin 37 story towers (over 400 feet tall) and they are supposed to break ground in October 2005. Here are pics of the evolution of this project;
