The developer of Broadstone Lake House has also requested permission for additional height to raise it from 110' to 120' because the property slops down from back to front towards Lake Ivanhoe.
This project goes before the Municipal Planning Board on March 21st.
The 2.11 acre property currently houses the Fairchild Funeral Home and Crematory (Website), built in 1940.
"Constructed in 1940, the Art Deco building was a modern and up-to-date funeral home offering ambulance service, a crematorium, and an on-site chapel. Fairchild Funeral Home, one of the oldest continually operating funeral businesses in Orlando, faced tough competition from Carey Hand Funeral Home, established in 1907. Fairchild capitalized on their modern facilities with heavy advertising and erecting a large roof top sign in the 1950s. Though slightly changed from the original design and orientation, the sign consists of a large metal frame and five-foot tall channel letters with plastic faces and neon tubing inside." -City of OrlandoThe furneral home is topped with a neon sign which Orlando Weekly named of the top 27 historic landmarks that haven't been destroyed yet. It was named a landmark sign in 1996 by the City. Many of Orlando's old neon signs get saved and stored in the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art's private neon collection started in the 1970s by Hugh McKean, the museum's original director.

Uber Statement on Bipartisan Passage of House Bill 221 by House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee
Members of the Florida House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee today voted 14 to 1 on House Bill 221, which establishes the regulatory framework for the operation of transportation network companies (TNCs) in the State of Florida.
The following statement should be attributed to Javi Correoso, Public Affairs Manager, Uber Florida:
“The bipartisan vote today on HB 221 by the Florida House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee is the first step toward ensuring ridesharing has a permanent place in Florida. Uber has become an integral part of local transportation systems, and this legislation will help expand opportunities to better connect communities.
“A statewide framework would increase consumer choices for safe rides across the state, keep residents and visitors moving, and further empower drivers to take charge of their economic future. Thank you to Reps. Chris Sprowls (R-Clearwater), James Grant (R-Tampa) and all co-sponsors for championing this bill in the Florida House.”
The bill establishes minimum insurance requirements for TNCs, requires thorough background screening standards for TNC drivers, and includes consumer protection provisions that strengthen the community of riders and drivers in Florida. In addition, the bill provides regulatory certainty for TNC services in Florida by replacing a patchwork of conflicting local regulations with a unified statewide framework. The next stop for HB 221 is the House Government and Accountability Committee.
