Stumbled on a link of really awesome photos of Creative Village and DT area poking around the CV development site.  Great shots! Click through and enjoy: http://creativevillageorlando.com/downloa

I drove around downtown Orlando yesterday after not being there for several months. As I was driving south on I-4, the first thing that really stood out to me was how west of I-4 felt much more vertic

They are wayyyyyy off that target. No chance this month.

You may be right, the final stages of any project are always the slowest, but I don't see them as being "wayyyyy" off.  The kitchen is pretty well set up as is the bar. Flooring is done as is painting. Some booths are installed and some furniture appears to be onsite. Much of the staff has been hired in the past 2 weeks and the chef is posting pictures of his dishes on IG. I suppose they could pull it off in another 27 days, but even if possible it may make more sense to push their soft opening to after Easter. Regardless, given this place was still dirt floors 4 months ago, they have really moved fast.

The restaurant in the Julian (The Monroe) should open this month. I know it seems like an odd locale for a nice, upscale place at this moment, but I think when Modera and EA fill up it will be quite a success.

Is this the first new restaurant to open in CV / Parramore as a result of UCF Downtown?

It will be interesting to see if regulars willvwntire over.

They have a Subway and Dunkin open in the UnionWest building if you want to count those.

We’re anxiously awaiting the 7-Eleven...

You laugh but I personally think a 7-Eleven would work well with the college students in the area.  Red Bull, cheap beer, and garbage food? Seems like a perfect match.

I think a 7-eleven or DGX or something along those lines is a given since the vision documents for CV mentioned "convenience retail".  Union West has 1 spot left, but it is only 2500 sqft and has a patio, so likely a food concept. I don't think the Julian has any more spots open.  Modera has 10,000 feet of retail, which is twice the size of the DGX on Rosalind- so my guess would be there.

Per The Daily City, new brewery and food truck park proposed for Creative Village area.

I don't know if this has any legs, but it could be interesting for the CV residents since the property is adjacent and Terry Ave will soon provide a direct path to it. I suspect everything in that area has to get the Ustler imprimatur to move forward.

I would also add it may not go over well with the neighbors and they will need to come up with a parking plan to get approval- unless the Parramore garage is public...?

The first floor of the garage is open to the public, but you have to pay through an app.

tbh I find that spot weird for this.. feels disconnected from the CV area. 

I agree with you. It sounds like an independent landowner is trying to come up with an alternate use for the warehouse space. I applaud them for the effort in thinking outside of the box and I hope they are successful. I might drive over and check it out one of these days during daylight (but those early AM morning hours are really pushing for that area lol).

Once OCSC games get back to full capacity, it could be a pretty cool spot if done right during game days. Outside of game days, definitely in an odd area - though, with time - I can see that whole area transformed (gentrified).

Makes sense based on how far away it looked peaking in. Really hope this kills it so we see others invest in the area.

I think the first 6 months will be lean inasmuch as the students are not there yet. OTOH, I and many of my friends well remember Chef Oakley and Smiling Bison and we'll have no problems driving to CV on a regular basis.

By Oct/Nov they should have a few thousand students and 700+ EA workers. In the end I think they'll do pretty well.
