Just a link to the MPB staff report.

I combined Ph 2 tower and Ph 3 former Church Street Station re-work as it seems they are both ramping up to start.

At some point maybe e we should start a tower 2 thread. Baker Barrios  posted video flyover video of the project:

I can see why there has been such confusion on the different elevations when posted individually. I think I like this.

Thanks for the link, the rendering explains a lot.

The new building does look like it might close 90% of the gap here, not entirely a big fan of that. Not sure what to think about the building still. Seems massive

I actually like it. The MPB reports didn’t provide a clear rendering which threw me off. But I definitely like this one. Not the best, but not bad at all.

I think the video sells it to me a bit more. A little funky - but definitely unique. I'll take it. Would like to know what materials they want to use though.

The video is much better.  I'm still annoyed over the lack of foresight regarding the parking pedestal.  So much wasted space that could have been a Sunrail lobby.

does it?

Looked like it did in the video. Phase two is 85 feet taller than phase one, which is a good bit taller by Orlando standards.

It looks 430’ in the video. In any case, based on phase one’s floor height, phase 2 would be over 400, and that’s without the roof ornamentation.

Just 400'.  The labels are funky as someone pointed out in the other thread.

It's almost as tall as the title of this thread would be if it were stretched out and stood on its end.... :good:

:D

The MPB approved phase 2/3, including the food hall, over the objections of Hamburger Mary's and the full plan goes before the City 11/11.

Before anyone goes off about Buddy, Chapman and the City needing to protect the little guy consider the view landlord/ tenant issues are a matter for civil court- not elected officials.

I love the  extra-descriptive title of this thread.

Thanks!  In truth I was just trying to make it easy to tell which thread was which.

Passed Orchid Gardens and saw some equipment on site and well as a gate. Looks like demo should happen soon unless the equipment is for I-4 construction.

I have not seen any I4 equipment east of Sunrail tracks so I'm doubting it's for I4!

From @Jvest55 in another thread...

"No rendering, but a mention about it here

https://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/news/2020/02/11/2-proposed-downtown-towers-seek-record-setting.html

Lincoln Property plans to build a 32-story skyscraper with 210,000 square feet of office space, 228 hotel rooms and more northeast of South Street and Garland Avenue."

The article also mentions that Highwoods has dusted off plans for Cap Plaza 3 and the link, as well as @Jvest55 post(rendering included) in the Capital Plaza thread mentions both developers are asking OVER $40 PER SQUARE FOOT. That would be amazing for downtown landlords and if they get it would drive lots of other development.

Well then it won't be built because nothing listed on loopnet in downtown is going for more than $30, slim chance they can fill up that much higher than everyone. Average in Orlando is under $25 but we do have a low vacancy rate.

      An uncomfortable question, but one that needs to be asked, in light of 'rona and riots:  how bad a long-term hit has the demand for office space and hotel rooms taken?  I don't want to leave out residential, retail, bars and restaurants, parking garages, and public/cultural facilities, which are already having a tough time, but office and hotel  demand seems to be in a particularly difficult long-term spot.  
      Years ago, one of the big commercial real estate companies, in conjunction with, as I recall, the Central Charlotte Association (since absorbed by the Charlotte Chamber) kept a running count of office vecancy by building.  Is such a list still being maintained?  What's the real vacancy rate for uptown office space?  And by "real," I mean stats which avoid double-counting leases (counting as occupied both the space that Law Firm X is currently leasing but is scheduled to leave, and the space they will occupy in a new building).  Surely it has become a renters' market, given the massive office square footage recently added or under construction.  It seems obvious that the new buildings will have to slash their rental rates and/or increase their tenant upfit allowances, as well as offer deeply discounted or free parking.  But the real hammer might fall on the so-called Class B buildings which were built in the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.  Take, for example, the 400 South Tryon building, the gold and white building known as Wachovia Center in the 70s and 80s, and later occupied mostly by Duke Power (now Duke Energy).  is Duke still the major tenant there?  If so, not for long, I would surmise.  What about BB&T Center, at 200 South College?  Southern Bell was for many years its majority tenant; when they left, Bank of America took most of their space for back-office operations.  But now, in addition to BB&T leaving, BofA has greatly reduced its space, and I would guess might leave entirely.  Who would fill the building?  And the once-tallest and most prestigious office building uptown, the all-glass BofA Plaza, will certainly have some move-outs.  What about One, Two, and Three Wells Fargo?  Is Wells occupying more space than they need?
      If anything, the hotel situation may be more dire.  I trust the NFL and NBA will be fully back in a year or less, but it will be a long time before the convention business bounces back.  That's the life blood of hotels, of course, and new hotel rooms, from economical to luxe, are rapidly coming on line.
      I hate to be negative.  I've always been a Charlotte booster.  Would anyone like to demonstrate that things look better than I think they do?

      Five-Story, Five-unit,   contemporary Townhome building with a maximum elevation height of 57.5 feet located in the Lake Eola Heights neighborhood. 
      330 Broadway Ave. & 245 E. Ridgewood St.

      The townhomes will be approximately 4,100 SF each and come with two-car garages and  terraces on the top floor offering views of Lake Eola and the Linton E. Allen Memorial fountain.

      Photos from today this JW Marriott hotel at Plant Riverside  is getting ready to open in November of this year.  This is a great project new construction blending with renovated old power plant all along the Savannah River. This project will include an extension of the riverwalk further towards the bridge.
