Saw this crane up today, glad this is finally happening! Hopefully all these new apartments bring more food retail in this area. The fast casual options are very lacking downtown, I usually just end u

Still more insightful than OBJ subscriber only content

Anyone remember the long gone Pizzuti proposal for this block? The cube tower.

Are they homage here to that design, especially in tower 2?

Thank you. I was wondering about that. I think they did it for our Columbus lads, @HankStrong and @AndyPok1!

As long as TowerI is built first, at 28 stories, by the time it's done, demand might go up again and they may upscale Tower II and make it taller.

And if they decide to not build tower 2 or postpone it indefinitely, as is known to happen in Orlando, at least we'll have one 28 story tower instead of one 17 story stump.

I like the dimensions of this a lot.  The smaller mid-rise does a nice job of breaking up the monotony. 

This reminds me of a recently completed project in Boston - the HUB at Causeway:

C0-D8-C3-E1-2534-4-D13-B18-F-45-BAD8-BC6

 

It shares some similarities:

- Transit oriented (North Station at TD Garden)

- Mixed-used - residential, office, hotel, retail

- Somewhat similar design features (although Orlando could learn a thing or two from this example)

UBS sued and they settled when PMG agreed to shorten that tower.

Who did they sue? the city?  on what grounds?

There are no protected view rights in Orlando, it would have to be a suit regarding zoning approval, in which case they could only sue the city correct?

WTF?  I remember when they first wrote about that.  Their theory was something about how the Society project would somehow interfere with their project's viability b/c it was too big or something like that; some bogus theory...

Sun being blocked from hitting their pool deck perhaps?  If that's the case then 55W should sue itself.

I don't know the details but read it in Growthspotter a while back.

UBS Realty Investors, which owns Central Station, dropped its appeal of the city approvals as part of the stipulated, three-way settlement with PMG and the city.

Not sure but the pool deck for central station is in the courtyard. It does not get sun anyways.

I'm still annoyed how they blocked off that sidewalk.  You can't cross the street at the trail unless you go a half block back to Garland.

To add to the convolutedness of the sidewalk debacle, now the sidewalk on the NE quadrant of Garland and Livingston is blocked as part of I-4 Ultimate so now pedestrian MOT has the two construction sites detouring at each other, at arguably one of the busiest pedestrian intersections in the city.

Workers, rebar, and other construction materials onsite today.  I thought this wasn’t supposed to start again until March?

Yup. I sat at the sun rail station  and saw the activity. Couldn’t get the best picture but there was much happening. Glad I wasn’t the only one
