Oh Purty :) Reminds me of what the Contemporary might be if it were to have been built in 2016. I see some architecture there that was definitely influenced by both it and BLT.
Its an eye sore and would ruin the look of i-drive. I-drive to me is a great place to stay and nothing really intruding on the sky line and needs to stay that way. This is way too big and unless they put it a way back from i-drive it is going to to bad.
Whether we like it or not, as population and tourism to Orlando increases, so will the structures to support this influx. This area was well on its way to becoming citified as soon as they passed permits for building the Orlando Eye complex.
"Ruin the look of I-Drive?" It's replacing Best Brazil and a strip mall. If anything, this will give the area a boost.
This mall definitely will have its own niche in Orlando! Orlando needs something like this besides Millenia. It will also be closer to the theme parks. (Universal is just on the other side of I4 and Disney is only about 5 miles) Looking forward to it!
Paul, ruin the look of I Drive?? Really?? There is a Brazilian restaurant, a pool hall, and a year round Halloween Costume store there now? Ruin?
Paul says its an eyesore???
I can understand based the drawings, the place looks like a dump (lol). The area needs more strip centers and gas stations and Timeshare stands.
