So phase one onf city place is the smallest building:


which is nice enough, I guess.

The other projects are out by Disney? If so, who cares?

If they are downtown, that would make a difference.

Also, Pointe Orlando (the shopping center) is under redevelopment as we speak.

Blue Rose, Aqua, and Shingle Creek needed to be closer to the OCCC to make a bigger impact w/re to the whole walking distance issue.
I predict Aqua to transform the I-Drive area into an "Aqua-centric" district once built. Why else would Rosen speak so negatively of the project?

None are by Disney. Aqua, Peabody and Blue Rose are in the I-Drive tourist corridor (the convention center area) and Citymark is across Kirkman from Universal. These are areas that aspire to be urban, so its worth discussing.

^I was going to say. I-Drive may suck ass now, but it could get better. Especially if some LRT can actually be built.

I do share the view that Disney/Celebration is a lost cause though.

You just also happen to have projects which are twice as good.

Kissimmee/192 is indeed a lost cause.

Noone mentioned the Millennia projects-- the 11 story mixed use 4-6 tower project going up across Bloomingdale's; the mixed use projects going up at JYP and Millennia Blvd., and the Nemours future site at Conroy and Vineland across I-4.

As backwards as Orlando has been in the past (and present) with regard to transportation and urbanity, there are a lot of forward- thinking developments in the works right now-- all over town.

The Orlando Cityplace project (No. 2), to me, is a waste, since those pyramid topped structures, at least the one on the right, is a refurbished 30 year old former Holiday Inn that has no business being included in the project. It should have been demolished. The ceilings are too low, to say the least.

The First project, is too much of a vision project right now, but it does include an aquarium in its design, so its probably much further along than Cityplace. Plus, the developers, from Boca, already purchased the old Delta site and are committed to the project.

The third, Blue Rose, to my shock, is this far along. It's not, however, the only "big block" or "big box" development on I-Drive under development. ---

---There's also the Aqua Resort, with over 2,000 rooms and costing $2 Billion to take over the Mercado parcel. Now, that's a non-casino money driven hotel/resort outside of Vegas, just like Blue Rose. (sorry, no pic). That, in and of itself is impressive. Aqua is backed by Unicorp and LaSalle Natl. Bank of Chicago.

Let's not forget Rosen's Shingle Creek Resort & CC further down Univ. Blvd. 1,500 rooms and a 250,000 square foot CC and two golf courses and the Rosen School of Hospitality for UCF. It's already topped off.

Also, Gaylord Palms may increase their CC from 400,000 ft2 to 1.1 million ft2 and add another 500 rooms to the existing 1,400 if the deal w/ Osceola County goes thru.

Also, Peabody's 800 room expansion will break ground before 2006 at 33 stories.
Seriously ? Peabody's breaking ground in a number of weeks ?!
