During a courtesy review, the Orlando Appearance Review Board praised the newest renderings for our client’s proposed multi-family, mixed-use 20-story tower. The tower will be located at the corner of North Magnolia Avenue and Weber Street.
Baker Barrios Creative Director Wayne Dunkelberger told the ARB the project is designed to take advantage of its location directly on the city’s Urban Trail and serve as a hub for activity between the Central Business District and Ivanhoe Village neighborhood. Shops and restaurants will line Magnolia and Weber, but the feature that sets this project apart from other downtown buildings is the elevated plaza courtyard that will be open to the public.
“The plaza really will define the project,” Dunkelberger said. “The feeling that there’s something going on at all levels, at all heights, and it’s activated on all sides and corners was really important for us to really set the bar and tone for this area.”
