the former Verde twins that was retooled as a 6-7 story residential project with I think streetside retail.

Interesting. Not bad. I wouldn't have minded those towers though. Would have been good to have some twins downtown.

Any news on the planned Clean the World tower ? I thought I read it was supposed to be top-notch, LEED-certified, the works.

The Lake Nona Project is a joke. Taking way too long to get done, but money is a major issue.

I hear you. On the bright side, read on UP that action on the Rida development is fairly imminent. So, seems like there's some critical momentum building.

ok, will do.

Also, don't forget... oh, brain fart. The project just north of 801 N. Orange (869 North?), the 6-7 story residential that's being developed by GDC (instead of Verde), well, they should be starting on that project this month.

What I'd like to see development-wise, is a higher concentration of residential towers not only in downtown, but also in the corridor south of downtown bordered by Orange Ave to the east and Division to the west. That's a very densely developed corridor for medical and industrial and retail along Orange.

The other corridor would be South St. from as east as Crystal lake exit on 408 all the way to downtown. There are some scattered businesses along that route already. From GAI in, it's pretty dense.

And the other is the Florida Hospital South corridor at Orange & Princeton. there are already many projects in the works, but developers need to take advantage of the Lake Ivanhoe views. Orlando Palace proposal comes to mind from past boom; and that 1000 N. Orange proposal for that triangular lot north of Body by Mahmood.

Well, the GDC people fenced up and started to do site clearing for 899 N. Orange (just north of 800 North Orange.

And with Steelhouse at around 75% completed, these two projects will probably more than double the amount of residential units in Uptown.
