Church Street Plaza | 28-Story Office/Hotel [Phase 1 Under Construction]


Recommended Posts

If I read it correctly, phase 3 is a food hall at the existing space of the Orchid Garden and Bumby building. My question is not if these buildings will be replaced rather if the existing tenants will be evicted for an adaptive reuse of the space.

Hamburger Marys took a chance on Church Street when it was essentially a ghost town — it would be sad to see them go.

I'm probably biased just because there's so much hate, and I just LOOOOVE the way it fills in the lot when coming off of I-4 from South St.... but I can't get enough of this building

We've got glass

This is the same food hall we discussed back in April and May. It is going in the space behind Mary's and Pepe's (may consume Pepe's)- the space that was previously el Buda and extends toward Cheyenne. The brochure on the following LoopNet listing calls the Mary's space "anchor restaurant" and since they are discussing side entrances along the rail I assume they are not impacting the street property.

Indeed they did and. at the time when Bob Snow was reopening Cheyenne he made the comment he didn’t think Mary’swas particularly what he wanted to see on Church St. Included in the comments was more than a hint of veiled homophobia. Of course, when Cheyenne crashed and burned while Mary’s weathered the recession nicely, we enjoyed a good bit of schadenfreude.

Fun fact: Mary’s is a franchise (and not a particularly tightly controlled one). Before we ended up with the successful version on Church St., other groups had discussed putting one in the old 60’s era HoJo at OBT and Robinson and perhaps as the restaurant in the Parliament House across the street.

I can see why Baker Barrios lead with the other renderings -- this thing is massive!

And it's not much taller than the brohawk piano either.

Gonna be pretty chunky looking from certain angles.

Would like to see a good high-res, full color rendering. 

As yet, I'm not really all that impressed with it.

Another order of McArchitecture for DTO.

Mary’s is in the old Bumby Hardware building which is landmarked. Of course, we know how little that means to Bulldozer Buddy. If that’s in play, I know I’ll contribute to any lawsuit we can muster.

Oh, come now.

Dyer would never even consider bulldozing any part of Church Street Station.

Unless maybe if they were dilapidated old derelicts with little or no historical value like Woolworth's and McCrory's... 

Sorry. Couldn't  resist. ;) :D

That makes a lot of sense as the consistency across the franchise is sketchy at best. I’ve noticed major differences depending on location — I’ve only been to Orlando, Tampa, and WeHo. They all certainly have their own identity.

Is this where that Chicago style pizza place was for a bit?

Yes. That would be booth 9-13.

Btw, that pizza place is now on S. Orange. Brick and Fire.

unless you're talking about when it became another failed pizza place and then a cocktail/ foodie place, then a Latin/ Asian fusion place...

I'd like to see more about their plans for the courtyard between Phase 2 and the Bumby Arcade.  That could be really cool if they did it right.

I see the floor plan says "courtyard" but I think that is what is there presently- not what is planed. Looking at the renderings from the rail where the entry is there does not appear to be any space between the buildings. Also, looking at the renderings of the of the block I do not see a courtyard included.

Don't get your hopes up.

I think the Chicago Pizza is the failed one you mentioned, not Brick and Fire.

Thank you Andy.  I was trying to remember the name of that place.  Was it ever officially a kickball bar or was it just a stop of that we frequented a lot?

It was a kickball bar for one season.  Also, I just loved it so I went there a bunch.
