Theatre District

25 posts in this topic

Here are some conceptual renderings of what Baker Barrios is calling the Theatre District. Despite the name, it's not actually a part of the new Performing Arts Center-- just near it.

It's a Kuhn proposal that was in the OBJ a long long time ago (Before Kuhn ran into his financial issues). I will say one thing that Kuhn has quite the visions. I hope he rebounds financially to pull some more of these projects off like this one and Dolive..I have a feeling the AMC is going to be huge along with the arena in this part of town and he might be alright in a year or two. Even the Donald has run into trouble here and there....

Kuhn had a vision to bulldoze another block of historic structures to put up an uninspired design? This would never fly.

What Historic buildings are you referring to? All I see on that block is a parking garage and crap...

I didn't realize this project has been on the drawing board for so long already. For those in the know, does this thing have any legs now or should we immediately write it off?

I am wondering what the city will say about it being right behind The Plaza and Solaire. Exact same architect exact same visors for the 5 towers in a two block radius. On top of that is looks to be only say about, 367' or 373'. Which is decent but just can't help the proximity and similar design. I think they would really have to use a multitude of materials to differentiate it. Since this is Kuhn Co. don't know that that is an option. Then again I just love new towers.

I happen to like it a lot. Probably the greatest thing it has going for it is the lack of a parking garage pedestal, which allows for that neat retail alley between the two towers. The usual tired Baker Barrios design elements don't bother me so much in this concept-- I actually like the visor, mini spire, and curving walls. The site plan is very unique for Orlando and reminds me of Toronto's City Hall, especially if one were to rotate the shorter tower and rotunda 180-degrees.

that's where Clubhouse and mad Cow are.

That church at Rosalind and Pine is pretty old... can't remember what faces Church St. though... I think it's that 4-5 story w/red awning bldg. along Magnolia & Church...

hmmm

I would love to have something like this get built

it would compliment the no DPPAC very nicely, not to mention, I love how the the look is quite different from the others we have downtown, and adds diversity

Frickin awesome

So what's the deal, is this mixed use, just residential or what?

What are the chances of this actually getting built?

I see the Clubhouse bldg is still there too, the church and church buildings are gone. But the clubhouse bldg adjoins a church buidling (not the actual church on the corner of Pine and Rosiland). Looks like from the rendering it was sliced out. ???

This looks pretty close to the TT site. I wonder if there will be any conflicts should it progress any further.

With the hotel going into the the south tower of Tradition Towers, the only views this development would block would be that of the hotel guests, so there shouldn't be any commotion about it. If anything, The Solaire people should be the ones upset about it, but since they're both Kuhn properties I don't think there will be much of a problem there either.

So how is this going to get approved without parking especially considering how close it will be to the PAC? Will it be dependent upon The Plaza's parking garage?

Does anyone know if this project actually has potential to come to fruition? I really do like the concept of this development, especially concerning its location.

Does anyone know where the renderings for this project can be seen? Also, whether or not it's totally off the boards or on-hold?

This is the first time I've ever heard of such a thing.....my guess is that the idea is probably dead in the water.
