Sure this is a history blog, so one might not think there is a need for updates. That’s not the case in our changing city. Here are some updates to posts about some of the retro locations around Orlando. The Minute Maid Headquarters Building (Original Post) – The days are numbered for this building, because it is soon to be demolished. Signs have gone up announcing it will be the site of a new Wawa.
Church Street Station Depot (Original Post) One of Orlando’s icon historic structures has been empty for several years. It’s soon to be the site of Ferg’s Sports Bar & Grill. (Story: Bungalower) Along with the sports bar, an upscale restaurant is in the plans. And some interesting options for storage. Construction continues along the rails for the Sun Rail debuting next year. (Story: Orlando Business Journal)
Cherry Plaza Hotel (Lake Eola) (Original Post) Construction continues on the World of Beer which will open in the bottom level of the former Cherry Plaza Hotel. Soon we can enjoy a big selection of beers and a lake view on the grounds President Johnson and Walt Disney walked 50 years ago. (Story: Bungalower)
