The City of Orlando announced October 12th that it will be transforming a vacant lot at the corner of Orange and Robinson (MAP) into a "modern interactive public gathering space." This announcement initiates the process to start design and construction.
The area will serve a range of uses. The space will include the following:
- open space
- unique retail/eating space
- multi-media viewing space
- impromptu performance space
The City of Orlando has not begun the process of design yet on the corner lot. Above is an example of a public gathering space combined with retail and restaurant called Pier 29 in San Francisco. Source
