Radius | 13-Story Residential [Under Construction]

Recommended Posts


The Green house on the NE corner of the lot is still there. I think they may use it as a temporary construction office for a while as the site work and underground is being done. They had 6 ft pipes there today for underground storm drainage.

I wonder if that house would be worth moving?

That was my favorite part of Epcot as a kid.  I really wanted hydroponic tomatoes at our house, just to live in the future and stuff.

They are really moving quickly on the demo. The big corrugated pipes are there stacked onsite for underground water retention system. Should see a big hole in the ground soon to put these in.

I was attempting to take a good construction picture with dirt and things on the ground. 

But I happened to catch an advantageous circumstance of a good day to reflect the clouds onto the building facade materials across the street, and great weather. 

Imagine how good this area will look with the new building and courtyard of Radius and the new hotel across the street, AND a protected, covered bike lane along the way, AND the maybe new buildings on Orange and Livingston (Zoi House and X-Orlando), AND Creative Village adding creative young people to the mix. 

AND a Downton Art Museum next to Bob Carr, and connected to the CV and Under-I, AND Vertical Medical City and a Monorail connecting DownTown, SunRail, I-Drive and the Executive and International Airports. . . 

Okay, Sorry, I got ahead of myself on that last paragraph. . .

@dcluley98 I'll have to look at the plans, but it would probably make the most sense to put the exfiltration trench/vault for stormwater under the plaza.  That way they can get easy access/maintenance if they were to get clogged or crushed.

Edit:  Yep, that's what it appears to be.

Can we add to our wish list a pedestrian mall on Magnolia ala Lincoln Rd?

Thank you, @codypet !

I will continue taking pictures of the progress as I can. 

NO wishes granted. 

We are carbon-based sapiens here, not robots or genies.

      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.

      General site plan which definitely maximizes every inch of their site as opposed to the giant sprawling parking lot currently there:

      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?
