I just noticed Baker Barrios can't design a building without a visor to save their lives. 

That goes back to a new rule in Mayor Bill’s day to not do the same old flat-top International Style buildings which were about all we had then. Unfortunately, the law of unintended consequences kicked in and developers took the cheap way out with visors.

In this rendering, the  Creative Village park appears to extend north to Lake Dot.  In previous CV master plans, this lot was set aside for development. 

I do hope this is an updated plan to set aside additional park space and to seamlessly connect the park and lake area.

Are they gonna build anything on that parking lot on the bottom right?

Not in this phase. I believe they're saving those lots for later development that will hopefully have more appeal due to the activity from the other buildings, which means they can be denser (aka. taller).

I didn't realize the green space extends past Amelia alongside EA.

My question is why didn't they design EA's garage so it didn't front he green space?  And also, the front facade of EA- it only fronts Amelia and doesn't front any part of the green space.  It's almost like they didn't plan for that building to park integration- unless that green space is temporary at best.

I recently stayed at a Moxy in NY.  Trendy vibe -- that would be a nice addition to the area.

Gimme a Kimpton! I thought the AC might have ended up being a Moxy, but I think they're generally geared towards the more millenial traveler who doesn't need much space and prefers cheaper rates with nicer finishes, while AC is more geared towards business travelers.

 Also, on the south end of Central Park, the park does not run all the way to Livingston. Lot H was at one time proposed as an amphitheater, but for now looks like it will be a plaza instead of extended green space.

The most recent renderings of Phase II show it as surface parking lot. I would think they would us it as temporary laydown/parking/site office for the Phase II construction, and convert it to surface lot after the projects are complete.  The initial master plan had that Lot H as third party office/creative development for Phase I and Lots R,S (the lot north of Amelia and west of EA) as the planned future hotel/flex development. Since they could not get buyer for those, the master plan changed.  Given the lack of office builders and the new plan for the hotel going in Lot X, I would say they will probably be green space/surface parking for quite a while.

The little 10 story hotel could be a Moxy Brand according to Orlando bogus journal.

Should have more details 4th quarter 2021.

I think they used me as an unnamed source...:tw_glasses:

Technically the park ends at Amelia. The lots between Amelia and Lake Dot are currently listed as "Potential Interim Uses of Existing Green Space", they are potentially viable building lots, but they may be left as open space (no guarantee). Also, on the south end of Central Park, the park does not run all the way to Livingston. Lot H was at one time proposed as an amphitheater, but for now looks like it will be a plaza instead of extended green space.

Btw, I've heard the proposed hotel on Parcel X-1 is proposed to be a  Moxy by Marriott.

Amelia Street resurfacing is complete, right as EA and Modera are taking down some of their fencing.

Interestingly, the entrance to EA on this (southwest) corner is actually below street level and there are a few steps leading down to a small plaza.

Keeping that Amelia Street bend was a great move.

As unvertical as it gets; even by Orlando standards.

Absolutely real. They already announced the Parcel X and X-1 a couple of months ago. (It's upthread)

$250 Million Phase Two.

Parcel X - 12 Story Class A Office Space with COVID-19 in mind. 185,000 sq ft with 5,000 SQ ft on ground floor retail. Calling it 'Building X' for now.  50% pre leased . $97 million

Parcel X - Hotel. 10 stories, 180 Keys, 5,000  ft of meeting space $42 million, Marriott brand targeted. A Marriott brand that isn't represented in Central Florida yet apparently.  Would come after office building and apartment tower.

Parcel X-1 - 26 story 324 unit luxury apartment tower totalling 259,000 SQ ft  and 4,000 SQ ft of ground floor retail.  $97 million.

Lol no way in hell a 26 story project of that size only costs $97m.   Glad CV is expanding though, really wish the south end of by Magic complex would build itself out.   The rate at which CV is growing, I feel like the Sentinel site is just crying to be built-out.
