I may have noticed this late, but after nearly 2 years, the Google Maps satellite view of Downtown has finally been updated, last time this was done was mid 2016 I think. Highlights include the completed Parramore school, Livingston re-alignment, significant I-4 work, the garage behind the hotel, and the beginning stages of the student housing building captured on satellite.  Previously these were not on satellite or at best only captured the initial construction stages.

Outside of CV, the Ace Cafe site is view-able, along with Modera mid-construction, Citi Tower in its completed state, the MEC block with the garage and OPD headquarters removed, as well as initial site work of Church Street Plaza and DPAC phase II visible. So the satellite imagery is probably a couple of months old but better than a couple of years.

 

That's strange. It doesn't show that for me. I wonder why. It still shows the 420 East Apartments are still under construction which would make it around 2014 for me.

In Google Maps? Turn off 3D in the menu. I don't know if it's been updated on Google Earth as well.

I don't see it yet either.  It may be gradually rolling out.  It could be difficult to update all the host servers at once.

You can see it in Google Earth, or the Orange County Property Appraiser has their own version of maps (targeted as a GIS system) that has very, very fresh maps as well. They're updated every year.

Nope. I just checked Google Earth and it doesn't show the changes. As the other guy said, the changes likely haven't been made available to everyone yet.

I made that CV map Friday afternoon on the ~2016 map; when I looked today it's the new map. Must be rolling out this weekend.

I figured out how to get it to show me the recent maps.  Click on the "menu" button on the top left corner of the screen, then click "3D on" below "Satellite" in the views section.

Does the new map show Orlando City Stadium?

Yep, it is.

Didn't know that about the Property Appraiser map.  Good to know!

It's showing the new map on the Google Maps mobile app but not the Google Earth mobile app, and not on Google Maps on PC or Google Earth on PC.

I'm seeing the new satellite view on my Android tablet.

yep.  On my Note 5, I see: 

Volcano Bay

Sapphire Falls

the apt bldg at Millennia u/c- except that the portion fronting Millennia isn't up yet.

the new Lexus dealership off Major Blvd

Aventura Tower u/c- not topped off yet.

the Creative Village grounds with the residence tower base u/c.

the base of Starflyer already in

that office bldg u/c off of Vineland near Millennia

the Marriott dual Brand at Millennia

Both Lime & Orange garages completed and the 3rd garage u/c at Diz Springs

Coronado Tower u/c

Carribean Beach tower u/c

JW sitework

OIA Intermodal completed

Hollywood garage topped off  

It looks like it's 1-2 months old.  Starflyer's progress is a key reference point.

Are you able to see the new map in 3D view or only 2D view?

So, I did a drive by at CV.  That other apartment building- at Amelia, you can see the uprights coming out of the ground for their first level.  Also, for the Commons Building, there is first floor construction  visible at it's western edge.

Here is that portion of the Commons Building I referenced above.  I'll snap an update of the tall residential tower next week or so when it's a little taller.

It looks like there are renderings behind the paywall?

It's nice to see that they recognize that the Doogie Howsers and Sheldon Coopers of the world need to go to UCF. 

 

Among all the college students, in the middle of the second rendering.
