ORLANDO, Fla. - A pair of investors are buying property in downtown Orlando with the goal of changing up part of Church Street yet again.

The investors are spending millions trying to bring in the kinds of options downtown hasn't seen in years.

And now, two Orlando brothers have spent $4 million to turn the (former train station) building into something that again draws a big crowd.

They bought the historic First National Bank building, which was being used by Valencia Community College, and turned it into a Walgreens.

They've started an online campaign called MakeOrlandoGreat.com to ask residents to vote on the top retail choices they'd like to see. The options include everything from an Apple store to a Chick-fil-A to a Trader Joe's.

"What we've gotten the biggest response for is a food hall, similar to a Chelsea Market in NYC, or a Franklin's Hall in Tampa," said Rob Nunziata.

The investors said the time is right in Orlando with the Orlando Magic development complex and a downtown University of Central Florida campus coming soon.
