This is the first post in a series called Crane Watch, which follows demolition and construction projects in the Downtown Orlando area.
Demolition has begun at the Lucerne Hospital property owned by Orlando Health.
We told you in December that a mixed-use project called Lucerne Promenade was planned for that site.
The building under demolition is part of Phase 1 of the project. Phase 1 includes 252 residential units, most of the project’s office and commercial space in buildings along Gore and Orange, a five-story parking garage and a ten-story hotel at Lucerne Circle.
We reached out to GDC, the developers of the project, for an update on when construction would begin but hadn’t heard back from them at the time of this posting.
Is there any update to this project? Are they planning on moving forward with it?
Picked up and dropped off countless patients from there. Some routine, some not. Saw many people get a new lease on life there.
