Whoa, very nice, I like all 3!!!! Capital Plaza 3 has some nice density and "Monarch" reminds me a little of Waverly. The 3rd one is stunning. Any more details? Hey there are no creases on these? What gives!!!

Man, the Eola Planning District (and Thornton Park) is blowing up more than even the CBD for the time being. This neighborhood keeps impressing me. My guess on the heights are 1. Capital Plaza 3 (corner bldg) 21 stories at maybe 260 feet and 2. The Monarch at Jackson and Liberty at 24 stories and probably 240 feet and finally 3. Eola and Church unnamed project at 22 stories and 220 feet. Just a guess.

Very impressive. Where excately will these three projects be built? Has Orlando ever considered building a downtown streetcar system similar to what Fort Lauderdale is planning? It could at least tie the inner city hoods together to help create a powerful urban core.

Just to help clarify things, this is a copy of my post from The Homemade Renderings Thread:

_________________________

Updated map with proposals of Capital Plaza III, Monarch, 305 S. Eola, and Church Eola Development. Since these are based off of renderings (or none at all) that show very little in terms of scale and place, these are my best estimations of their respective footprints and locations:

The first is on the east side of Rosalind between Pine and Church

The second is on the corner of Jackson and Liberty (behind the Orange County Admin Building and south of Lutheran Plaza)

The third is on Church and Eola south of the Sanctuary.

And yes, you may recall the extension of the Lymmo BRT lines are planned to go towards Thornton Park.

Well, Orlando currently has the Lymmo free bus system circulating through the central business district with its own right of way. I believe there are plans to expand the system, which should link this rapidly developing Eola South/Thornton Park district to the rest of downtown.

In addition to this, there is the possibility of a future light rail system making a few stops in downtown.

There is also a proposal at One East Robinson Street... a small 2-story bank building with a drive-thru (yuck); northeast corner of Robinson and Orange.

Number 35 should be moved a block south, and smaller.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

So it will occupy the site currently housing the structure with the brown roof? That's going to be a tight squeeze.

There is also the Corinthian Project mentioned earlier this week at the southwest corner of Division and Washington. It's a 6-story building with condos and office space, with retail on the bottom (kitty corner to #13 to the northwest).

Hey Jaybee if that is true moving it one block south would put it on that Church Property to the east of the City Parking Garage??????

Nice to hear about the Corinthian, I'll see about adding it and fixing 35...but I think I'm going to hold off on adding the 2-story bank in a prime location out of spite.

I'm getting to the point where I have nothing left to say. This development boom is unbelievable..I can't even begin to picture what Downtown Orlando 2010 will look like.

I fixed the map with the new 35 but think I'll wait on adding The Corinthian until I get a better idea of its footprint.

The front left tower appears to be a condo tower, the back an office building, and the smaller building a hotel, ne pas?

So Capital Plaza is by Highwood Properties but what about the Monarch Tower and the yet unnamed proposal at Church and Eola?

Holy crap, so where is the Monarch? Thats an awesome look, same with the Church/Eola project. That is exactly the kind of midrises we need throughout Thornton Park.

Jaybee said that the Monarch is located at the NE Corner of South Street and Liberty and will face E. Jackson Street. This will occupy half the block and will be between the City Parking Garage across from the Grande and the old timers high rise to the east. The unnamed project Jaybee said will be the block just south of the Sanctuary. So you are gonna have some density in that area that rivals anywhere else in DT if all goes up. This project also appears to have some street level interface as well. I agree with you praha!
