New I-Drive Live Permits: Sea Life & Tussaud's (Part 1)

Today we have a great deal of new information regarding the upcoming I-Drive Live project to share with you. As most of our readers know, we are incredibly excited about it because of the addition of a Sea Life Center, a Madame Tussaud's museum, the huge Orlando Eye, and multiple new shops, restaurants, attractions, hotels, and much more! This is definitely going to be a game changer for the already popular International Drive area.

Thanks to some new PowerPoint presentations and PDF files uploaded by godog7 on Slideshare, we now have a huge amount of photos, artworks, and plans showing the various attractions planned for the area. Let us first compare the newer look of the area with the former look (the plan has slightly changed for the better):

Compare this with this slightly older artwork:

The proposed look of the restaurants' facades (wow, those trees behind the Orlando Eye are huge...):

It will be a beautiful area:

Now, let's take a look around the area in general, from "above" (and in black and white):

  1. being an architect, i they really could of come up with a more adventurous scheme!

  2. Clearly the intent here was the maximum land usage while maintaining floor heights at 1-2 stories. Not the greatest approach, IMO, but it could be much worse. I really had hoped they'd incorporate the adjacent strip mall into the overall plan a little more, but perhaps that it in a longer range concept.
