Isn't that slab a remainder from the old school that sat on the site and burned down in the 80s?

 

Yes, it burned. Any thought of preserving it died that night. I was living out of state at the time but, from what I can gather, there wasn’t much that was salvageable after it was done.

Thankfully, we’ve saved OHS, Marks St., Princeton, Grand Avenue and Cherokee (to name just a few, not to mention other gems out of town like Lakeview).

All of these buildings are either still in use as schools or are serving other community functions. They show that old buildings can be useful long after they’re considered archaic and give a texture to the urban fabric that Baker Barrios and their visors can’t even fathom.

There’s a pride in going to school in a historic building like Howard Middle that leads kids to feel like they’re part of the community and that their elders actually care.

Compare that to schools like Colonial, Evans and Oak Ridge, which were falling apart less than 20 years after they were built and made the students feel like they were just tossed into dumps. (I know, because I went to Princeton and also suffered the indignity that was Evans High for two years).

Delaney School I feel is the best example of that kind of preservation.  That said did they decide what was to happen to Kaley School?

The last I heard it was in limbo because the bureaucracy deemed it too small to be a school any longer but Chairman Bill Sublette was hesitant to let it go. We’ll see what happens now that Teresa Jacobs is ruling the roost.

You’re absolutely right about the Beardall Center at the old Delaney School. It has great bones and obviously provided some inspiration to the architects at the new complex just across Orange Avenue.Kudos to them for recognizing a sense of place on that, btw.

Ummm, have they started site development? This seems a little ahead of the game. Is this maybe off site storage for some other project?

They haven't started site development yet. Could be for another project. Hard to say. Those are beams that would be used for floor/decking. There is not much vertical close by the site that would use those other than the Self Storage. May be for that project, but may be just early storage for Radius. The Self Storage site is HUGE so I would think that they would store their materials and equipment on site.

Isn't that low profile barrier for temporary shut down of a lane Per FDOT standard plans 102-120?

https://fdotwww.blob.core.windows.net/sitefinity/docs/default-source/design/standardplans/2020/idx/102-120.pdf?sfvrsn=10e0909d_2

This might be starting if they're starting to shut lanes down.

You're right Cody. Thanks for the info!  I thought it was pre-cast beams for decking.  So question is, what is it for? Shutting down access to the Rosalind Through street or other barriers necessary for the Utility excavations they have all around the site? 

They are going to have to block of lanes when they start digging for what was just painted on some of the streets and sidewalks probably. I got my hopes all up that it was for the vertical construction. :(

ding, ding ding… great answer. You move to head of the class young man.

Although this is preliminary work it appears to indicate they are moving forward. This is a good sign.

Another 320 units.  This is great!  Combined with 520 Church Street, that's 684 units under construction, excluding the Creative Village stuff and Novell-Yard-Fairchild Chapel developments, and the smaller townhome projects.

Plus we will finally get that terminating vista when driving up Rosalind. Were these the "final" renderings approved by the ARB?

Updated renderings in the May 17 ARB. 

http://www.cityoforlando.net/city-planning/wp-content/uploads/sites/27/2018/05/ARB2017-00022report.pdf

In reading the report, it appears they are working closely with the ARB to get this done. Seems to be legit. They mention there will likely be new renderings prior to board meeting. Could be pushing to get this done sooner rather than later.

Thanks, I've been lurking for a while and trying to keep tabs on this deal as well. Thought now would be a good time to sign up.

      The city council retreat is underway. Ryan Murphy of The Pilot is live tweeting from it. There is a lot of development discussion and focus in here to unpack. I am pretty new here but one development I may have missed or have never seen mentioned is a senior living development next to the fire station.
      Here is the first post of the thread;
      And here's the post referencing the senior living development;

      Dollar Tree is adding 600 jobs and expanding their headquarters. They said they will be building the "tallest building" in Chesapeake. Pictures in the article look to be a town center style environment within the Grennbrier area.

      I wanted to post a thread on this to see if anyone else was interested, curious, or knowledgeable about prefab homes.  My girlfriend and I are considering either a major addition to our home or demoing the structure and building a custom home.  I understood prefab to be better built due to the ability to build in a controlled environment, but also cheaper due to the economies of scale achieved by building similar homes in one location.  This would be especially true for the modular homes.  However, I am finding many of the prefab homes are priced in the $350-$500/sqft. range, excluding land costs!  One company (Turkel Design) gave me a quote for $143 for site work costs, which would include running the plumbing, electrical, installing the cabinetry, etc.   The materials (drywall, cabinets, counters, appliances, etc.) come as part of another $150,000 line item for the budget.  The big issue I am having is comparing apples-to-apples.  How do I confirm what a comparable house would cost to build on site?
      Does anyone have an personal experience with these types of homes or projects?

      The old Ramada Inn turned failed Duke Condo project turned failed boutique hotel by Graduate Hotels, is in the process of being demolished.  It appears everyone has given up at this point on trying to save the bones of this building and it's going to be razed for a 342 unit apartment complex and parking deck.  The design is being handled by CLINE Design on behalf of Alliance Residential out of Charlotte.
