What exactly are they doing to the digestive institute? Is that a tower crane base? How big is this expansion gonna be?

This is a picture of the plan. Not sure what the final product will be. I was thinking maybe elevator shaft but maybe you're right about the crane setup.

Probably both. It is definitely a tower crane, but it looks like they may build the building around it and use the void as an elevator shaft once the building is topped out and the crane base is removed.

Oh god, I can't even count how many times that has been a fleeting curiosity to which I've consistently forgotten to find an answer; "what happens to the hole in the middle of the building where the crane was?"

I probably didn't need to admit that publicly...hahaha.

Some updated photos from today. It looks like they are building a pedestrian bridge to connect the North Tower to Jewett. The neuroscience institute should be right next to the North Tower when it's built, so I imagine the walkway will bifurcate to allow movement between all three.

great shot.  

you know, it is just amazin that when you go down Columbia? Street, the street where the first hotel went...now there is a second hotel next to it (across the CVS or Walgreens) and now this building just past.  A few years ago it was just grass and weeds on the side of that street.  fantastic infill...

I’ve always really liked the aesthetic of this building.

And this was the scaled down version. The original rendering they were floating around was amazing but the economy took a hit and then "value creation" happened. I tried to find the original rendering I posted in the "Hospitals" topic back in the day, but it's gone... The wave-pattern architecture remained when they revived the project, but the original proposal was on par artistically with WPH (and really outshone anything FL Hosp was building at the time IMO).

Newly announced design for the upcoming Neuroscience Institute. Continued growth on the Orlando Health Campus. Currently we have this, Jewett, and the Digestive Health Institute planned or under construction.

It fits the overall aesthetic of "new" Orlando Health buildings (boxy, not sexy). I don't hate it but am also not crazy about it. I am a little surprised they are plopping just a 3-story building on that prime location. They are in desperate need for more physician office space and graduate medical education space (the building that this is replacing is currently the GME building)
