Correct.  Those highway design decisions should be second guessed.

No, they should have taken the increased costs into account when they made their planning decisions.

<_< :rolleyes: :whistling:

so now in true Orlando fashion this developer comes back after initial approval from the ARB and changes the design AGAIN to even more of a box. And why would they not,  the ARB lets everyone walk all over them. Would be shocked if they didn't re-approved this load of crap. ARB simply has no huevos.

Is the staff report available yet for the December hearing?  It's nearly impossible to get the info on-line since they switched their system.

Looks basically the same to me.

Ahhhhh...... well, that DOES look like more of a box. :(

Apologies to orlandouprise.

Now I'm hoping it never gets built.

I'll take nearly anything on this lot but this is a let down for sure.  I'm surprised they tried to push this through permitting without going back to ARB.  Luckily, the Planning folks caught them.  I'd love to see the new ARB report.  It was really easy to download staff reports on their old website.

I must admit, I do like some of the colors on the east facing facade, but the wavy, curved feature of the previous design was the only really good thing about it.

I mean... yes it's a downgrade, but I don't really hate it.  The wavy-ness was cool but felt too South Florida really.

I basically agree in that I don't hate it, but removing the curvy front really did turn it into more of a boring box.

Certainly the previous design looked/felt South Florida (Miami, actually), but I don't know if it was too much so.

A little bit of Miami style in Orlando is not necessarily a bad thing. 

Whatever. Just build the damned thing already.

It’s not Orlando, it’s the banks providing the loans. Cambria isn’t known for being an upscale hotel bland. If it was a Kimpton, the architecture would reflect a different set of aspirations (and price points).
