Radisson Blu | Mixed Use Hotel/Res./Comm [Proposed]

Recommended Posts

This kind of project is an interesting way to finance a building that can hold condos instead of rentals. $2.8M for the property is a good price too.

I have been wondering about association fees too. One of the main reasons I have never thought about buying a condo downtown is the ongoing association fees that are sky high in some of the buildings. After doing the math, renting was cheaper once you factored in association fees and insurance. It would be a continually variable cost after you "paid" of the condo as well, so in general, you may say you are building equity, but since the cost of living will continue to go up after it was "paid off" didn't seem like such a bargain to me. If having condos in the same building as a hotel could keep association fees lower, that would be another benefit.

I agree that association fees can get pretty high with condos, especially in downtown areas but I am always amazed by people not realizing you basically have the same costs owing a home - they are just lumpy and not predictable.

Starting to think Radisson was never in...

Eerily reminds me of when Festival Bay had that original layout plan with all the vendors listed, and then, poof, there was really only like half a dozen...

Strange that they show a semi truck completely blocking the cross-walk on the site plan.  They normally try to make that problem less obvious.

As Jernigan has already pointed out

This has been changed to a residential project instead of hotel.

 

232 multifamily units

9100 sq ft retail 

260 feet

OBJ discusses the rationale-

"That's not surprising as downtown developers continue to build new apartment skyscrapers more than office space, hotels and entertainment complexes, said Luke Wickham, senior vice president in Orlando’s CBRE Inc. (NYSE: CBRE) office, who was not involved in the deal. The explosive growth in Central Florida — which absorbs roughly 1,500 new residents weekly — has driven demand for new apartments."

“It’s easier in the current market to get [investors] excited about apartments,” Wickham said.

I think it makes sense. Apartments continue to fill up and with a new hotel coming on line at CSP, downtown’s notoriously slow hotel occupancy growth would have a hard time making it past even the usual 65% break even rate for quite a while.
