Modera Central | 23-Story Residential [Under Construction]

Recommended Posts

I think that someone is just trying to reignite the retail discussion bic already moved off this thread. Or at least a humorous allusion to same.

As I posted a long time ago, no retail. U-Club gets the first two floors including the big outdoor balcony thing on the 2nd floor that was to look out on Lake Eola but now with the new tower at 7-11 I guess not.

No retail at Central / Rosalind is a shame. It makes me much less interested in the development. I see a huge opportunity to ignite that corner compared to the "current state" which I think we can all agree is quite lackluster at such a prominent location.

I dont understand the overkill with retail.  Esp In this area. This building (if built) is on the Lymmo line and not far from the other. So People ave the option to get to retail.

Yeah there just isn't room for retail and U-Club. This is the only way the building gets built so I get it but I do agree it would be a great corner for retail. As long as the building across the street happens though it will be ok.

Ground floor retail is great & should be encouraged, but let's face it... every building cannot feature it, nor should it. 

 

Great & diverse cities have other things besides retail at the street level.

 

On the other hand, Orlando is still woefully lacking in good, street level space to put retail in.

 

A few more of those new residential buildings need to come on line before DTO can even support an abundance of retail.

I think the important thing is that the street level tenant interacts with the street...whether it be retail, office, club, whatever else. Totally agree that everything can't be retail - even in the densest of cities, there are exclusively residential streets.  That being said, this is a major street in a very prominent location, so it would be nice if there were something special and engaging happening at the street level.  Depending on design and visibility, University Club could still interact nicely.

I think U Club should be in the top floors of the building and not the bottom. Leave the ground floor for retails.

The top is too valuable. Leave that for residents that will pay top dollar.

It seems odd to me that an exclusive club would want to be on the ground floor. Not on the top because as jack says, get some money for that spot, but just peeking out over the top of the buildings surrounding it sounds more the mark to me. Members Only elevators done up uber fancy. but I guess that's just me.

I went to the Citrus Club for dinner for the first time a few weeks ago.  Anytime someone mentions the Citrus Club, they talk about the view, and it's definitely an asset to the space.  Either the University Club doesn't want to be a copycat, or they don't have a good vision for how to create an amenity with that view.

Maybe they could be on the top floor of the garage. Kind of an in between option. That would put them on the 5th floor or so. 

 

Functionally, it is probably easier on the ground floor.

Credit to Bungalower for really scooping the plans in advance on this one.  The city just assigned it yesterday.

It now is attached to a permit application that will go through board approvals - and we get the dirt in the form of staff reports.

In this case, it looks like we may now have a project name in Modera Central - of course that could change or not be the case

This is likely accurate.  Most of this developer's apartment projects get the "Modera" branding.  From an urban standpoint, they do really solid projects and this rendering looks quite similar to their Midtown Atlanta proposal.  Here is a couple of their projects in Atlanta (Modera MidtownModera Morningside).
