Too bad something like that didn't go up on Central across from Lake Eola.

 

It'll be hidden back on Church St.

I think the location should be good. Right across from artisan 420 and right at a lymmo stop. Should begin to fill the area between central and south and provide a reason for people to get off central.

That visor unsupported on the corner kind of scares me. I hope a hurricane updraft won't cause it to come crashing down.

It's supported now; that was part of recent changes. There is a newer rendering out there as well.

Just noticed today that there's a sign up for public notice hearing, but it has a date of November 11, so I guess it already passed unless it meant December 11?

According to the OBJ, this site, (formally the site for the Montage) was just sold to a Naples architect.

Confused on this - is this a news development? The city approved Summa (the firm from Naples) to build Citi Tower - so they would have already owned the land?

It is confusing.  The article was updated since this morning.  It says that Summa got permission from the city to build and that they selected the construction company, but it still says they only purchased the site 2 days ago (on the 17th).  I'm lost.

Don't think so.  Even one of the OBJ articles says "formally the montage site."  You might be thinking of the Monarch which was a few blocks southwest.

Sometimes, you do not close until you have entitlements in place.

Looks like this permit (for the foundation) is pretty close to being ready.  If I had to guess, I'd expect to see work starting in about a week or maybe two.  I'm really excited about this one.

seriously?  if so, this would be a good close-in-time groundbreaking to The Sevens and keep the downtown development momentum going.

I hope they move forward but I will believe it when I see it.

Nice to see residential development in the southern edges of South Eola neighborhood - Citi, 420, and Thornton Park brownstones.  For being such a desirable section of downtown, South Eola has felt broken to me due to the demolition of homes and lots cleared for development that have been left empty for years.

Nice looking building.

 

Woulda looked fantastic rising up from across the lake.

Where do you suggest it go up? I can't think of where you're referencing. I like the location of this project. Right now it's a dirt parking lot and should go a long way in leading the development between central and south street.
