    It looks a lot more impressive like this.

    Could where the Black Hole is/was be used as an expansion later on? It looks a little underdeveloped.

    I am not seeing 4k rooms here unless it is going to be really tall. I am counting 8 - 10 stories

    According to Orlando Sentinel:

    The resort is proposed to be split between Universal Boulevard with 1,200 rooms on the west side and the remaining 2,800 on the east side.

    I believe we have the average maturity level of 13 year olds.

    I think the Black Hole area will just be used for staff.

    Judging from the renderings, The main towers at the WnW spot are 12-15 stories.

    The new concepts give me a serious All-Stars vibe.

    I'm thinking the new hotels will make up Universal's "value category", CBR + Sapphire Falls will make up a moderate category, and the rest will be deluxe.

    So many hotel rooms. Maybe, soon, they'll leave IOA open past dark. ;) :)

    I really hope the city doesn't let them continue with this plan. The City has been trying to give the area a more walk-able and urban feel, and this does not achieve that goal in anyway. They could have at least built the hotel to the road, but instead they are proposing a berm all around the hotels to separate them from I-Drive. I may actually show up to a the City Council meeting where this project is discussed.

    Mind your tone please. The City controls zoning and the such, which controls what you can build. It's the same reason why I can't buy Suntrust Center and build a little country home in its place.

    Universal will need to change the zoning to Master Planned area in order to get this built from Specially Planned Metropolitan Activity Center because the later has certain restrictions on how a building can/cannot interact with the surrounding major roadways.

    Yeah, the city just approved a tower with a roller coaster right down the street. I'm sure this isn't a problem. lol

    Which abides by the codes. Notice how that abuts the road and provides multiple pedestrian exits/entrances onto the public ROW, yet this hotel project puts a berm there instead.

    Ok, that must be so important to you. You must pass by it everyday. Have a good day.

    I think you're missing the point :cool:

    You stated your case, and I then provided a counter case.
