Pathetic.

 

And to think that this project originally started out a few years ago as 30+ story twin towers as I recall.

that is not correct.  the 777 building (sevens) is what you are thinking of.

I think that he's referring to 801 N Orange (across street). There's a thread on that project 1-2 pages back that goes back to 2005 when the plans and it in the 30s. That project ended up 7-8 I think.

4-story 15000 sq ft office building with surface parking.

**Breaking ground by January**

http://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/blog/latin/2013/11/exclusive-work-starts-by-january-on.html

 

I don't care much for the surface lot, but it's office space - and increased density in an area that is close to the tipping point.  If The Sevens gets built (I'll believe it when I see it) and the hotel gets put in across the street, the Uptown/Ivanhoe area will have a very similar make up to the Eola South/Thornton Park area - a swath of apartment dwellers near an old neighborhood with a lake/park and local shopping/nightlife district. With the improved visibility that comes with being on Orange and an audience that is walled off on two sides by Colonial and I4, I think first floor dining and retail will thrive here compared to the rotating problems on S Eola drive. Plus there's still a lot of undeveloped property on the other side of Magnolia and some cool old buildings that could be re-purposed (OUC bldg, WDBO bldg). It's easy to forget how close this area is to the two growing hip/artsy sections of town (Mills 50, Ivanhoe/Virginia) as well.  I'm bullish on Uptown being an option for those that feel they have outgrown the CBD apartments and surrounding 21-25yo-centric nightlife, but still want urban living

Yeah, I thought I might be a little off on the address.

 

It's still a kinda sad little building though.

It's adorable. How long is that going to take to build? 2 or 3 hours? :)

I would definitely welcome more of these small buildings throughout the neighborhoods. They can take the forms of residential, office, retail, theatre/educational space, a boutique hotel, etc. It reminds me of some you would see throughout Chicago's North Side or even South Beach.

Nice!  The parking situation is a little suburban and the design is...well, Baker Barrios.  But overall I think it's a great addition to the area.

 

Can't wait for Sevens to bring more people to the area, and for the Lymmo expansion to bridge the gap between uptown and downtown.

I suppose given the way things tend to go around here, we should be happy for anything over two stories...  :unsure:

Smaller they are the easier they'll be to raze and replace once lots dry up ;)

Hillary said, "It takes a village..." Maybe we just have to wait until 2016 for life over there  :dunno:

It does not work for me. 

 

That's weird, it just worked the other day.  Now I can't get to it, event through Google search.  Looks like all of GDC Properties' websites are down.
