I thought the close-in neighborhoods like TP, Lawsona, Lake Davis, Lake Cherokee etc already consider themselves part of downtown? Lake Davis' monument literally states "A Downtown Neighborhood" on it lol:

IMO zip codes also help to clarify which area you live in. You might live in an annexed part of the city or even close enough to be considered part of the neighborhood, but when buying/renting real estate, zip codes are also a huge determining factor for some people.

32801: Downtown

32804: College Park

32789: Winter Park

 

 

ZIP codes can sometimes be a slippery slope. Some folks who live in 32792 claim themselves as Winter Parkers  when they’re actually closer to Goldenrod.

Yeah, but everyone knows that's not "Winter Park proper" though. My point is that zip codes help clarify neighborhood locations and it will let you know if the area you're aiming for is legit or not.

you are absolutely right.  on a related note, I was told that you also pay property taxes if you live in a local township in OH on top of everything else.  Wow.  I asked, ok, so do zip codes there end at the city limits too?  I didn't get an answer.

But, yeah, here, if you're off of Howell Branch or by the WalMart up past Lake Howell Lane, that is a Winter Park zip code.  I think it's 32707.  But...that's not Winter Park...

Zip codes were the bain of my existence when home buying because that is how realtors think.  BUT ITS 32806, YOU LIKE THAT .... okay, name me a single place I can walk to in less than 20 minutes that isn't Mills Market (as much as I love it).

ZIP (yes, it’s an acronym) codes actually have little to do with facts on the ground and simply correspond to a post office -the city name is whatever USPS decides to call it.

My grandmother, for example, lived just north of Gotha but had a Winter Garden address. Think about that - she lived EAST of Ocoee but was in Winter Garden according to her ZIP code.

one of the true mysteries of Central Florida...

Not really related, but we're so off topic... One of my most favorite fun facts... All original telephone area codes had a 0 or 1 as the middle digit.  So you can tell what expanded cities are based on area code overlays and segmentation.

I live in Oakland which is physically 34760 but Oakland doesn’t have a post office that delivers so my mailing address uses Winter Garden’s 34787. I wonder if the situation was similar for Gotha

Unincorporated parts of Orange County and areas not fully supported by post offices make ZIP codes and what town people actually live in very confusing around here. On the west side, soooo many people think they live in Windermere when they really just live in unincorporated Orange County

I would be real nice if this thread got back to being about the project.

Where in Oakland? I thought I knew everyone who lived there. That's where I work. 

Back on topic. I am excited to see this project moving forward. It will have a serious impact on Rosalind.

Awesome this got underway so quick, what do y'all think will be next to break ground, Golden Sparrow, Project X, or Magnolia Hotel? Hope I got the names right for the potential projects.

Mill Creek in CV. 

X-Orlando/Golden Sparrow are the same project, and are the next approved. Zoi House is the other one proposed across from X-Orlando along with Magnolia Hotel. Out of those, I would say X-Orlando is farthest along, with an approved design and a greenfield site.

Ah yes I was thinking of Zoi house, thanks! Hopefully X-Orlando gets started soon that site is way too valuable to be undeveloped for so long!

      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.

      New apartment complex coming to a six-acre plot of land. Rent will range from about $600-1,000, and eventually single-family homes will be built nearby.

      I'm guessing this is right off the Campostella Bridge, across from the Hardee's. There used to be a Farm Fresh there overlooking the water.

      Hey All,
      I'm moving from Boston to Tallahassee for a job that may be as short as 1 month or as long as 10 months. I think an extended stay hotel in Tallahassee could be a good option for me. The Value Place chain has two locations in the city, which is about $800 or so a month. Does anyone else have a recommendation for other extended stay hotels between $700-$900 in the area?
