This is the first of a new Candy Chang-inspired series of badly Photoshopped concepts for underused, vacant buildings and spaces in Orlando’s bungalow neighborhoods that we wish we could do ourselves, but can’t because we lack the funds.
So we’re giving you our ideas, to do with as you will.
This week’s “I wish this was” focuses on the corner lot of Bumby and Robinson, right on the tip of the Milk District.
The Hoods Up (OCPropertyAppraiser) was once a car repair shop but is now sitting vacant. The overhangs and abundance of windows/garage doors are reminiscent of the Black Bean Deli location on Colonial Drive, and make it stand out as one of the more architecturally pleasing buildings in the immediate area.
The Bungalower would love to see this space transformed into a beer garden. It’s position on the corner lot could be a face for the Milk District that showcases all of the bands and food truck events that are usually relegated to the back lots of the buildings up the street.
We think it would be a great Food Truck hub too. They park their trucks and plug into outlets so they don’t have to run their generators, you sit on the patio and drink your beverage of choice.
What do you think?
What do you wish it was?
