I believe the height restriction is in place for downtown Orlando buildings due to the Orlando Executive Airport being roughly 2 miles away. I would love to see at least 50 to 60 story buildings but that may just be me.

Honestly, I won't miss the place that is being demolished, b/c it's another one of those strip malls.

Strip mall???

Doesn't a strip mall need to be fronted by a parking lot and be in the form of a strip to be defined as such? The was a collection of restaraunts and shops in the middle of downtown.

Is this really from two years ago, or did you put the wrong year?
