My name is Teri Isner and I’m the Team Leader of the Orlando Avenue Top Team. This blog represents a group effort but, mostly, it’s mine!
First of all you should know that all of us at the Orlando Avenue Top Team are in synch when we say that Orlando is a great place to live. It is simply wonderful to be in an area where so many people come to have a good time. We can share this enjoyment any day and so we consider ourselves very lucky to be here. Furthermore, some of us come from another climate – I come from way up north – so we think we are especially fortunate to live where there’s wonderful weather.
The Greater Orlando Area is very big. You can drive about an hour each way and you’re still in what’s considered Orlando . Other large cities such as Houston and Las Vegas are like that too.
Orlando consists of several counties – Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Lake and Volusia. I-4 runs through Orlando and 417 loops around. Some of us at the Orlando Avenue Top Team prefer taking 417 even though it has tolls because usually traffic moves along fast.
The center of Orlando is the City of Orlando itself. I thought this blog should start right in the center, downtown, in the city. Sometimes it’s called the Metro area. Among other attractions it has tall office buildings, the historic Church Street Station, beautiful Lake Eola, The Orlando Science Center, the Orlando Art Museum and, of course, the arena where the basketball team The Orlando Magic play. The city has something for everyone and business in the city is booming.
Recently, huge investments have been made in the city. According to a related article in the Orlando Business Journal, 41 projects are either proposed for downtown or are already under construction and they have a value of over $1.5 billion.
Here is the list of the 41 projects proposed.
One project recently announced in the Orlando Sentinel is Capital Plaza III.
This is the announcement of Capital Plaza III
This project calls for a 150-room Hampton Inn & Suites, a 13-story condo tower and a 15-story office tower. The proposal also calls for up to 15,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Construction is slated to begin this year and the project is valued at $100 million.
