The Amtrak Station was built in 1926 and has been an iconic Orlando building ever since.

Over recent years the station fell into disrepair – with a leaky roof, cracked walls and moldy stucco. Last August the City and State announced a $2.1 M makeover of the historic building, and it’s well on its way to being restored to its former glory.

Bungalower stopped by earlier in the week to take a look at the construction.

Check out our photos below. What do you think of the work so far?

  1. Oh I so want bike lanes to this airport from my Delaney Park neighborhood!  I’m going to have to start riding over there more to catch SunRail regardless.  Such a beautiful building!

  2. This is fantastic! I love the building, it was such a dump. Always wondered what it would be like restored. Thankfully it is and not being demolished.

  4. I hope Amtrak and the “City Beautiful” clearly identifiy the former COLORED WAITING ROOM which is a significant reminder of Orlando’s segregated history.
    I was forced to sit there and board segregated trains in the 50’s…and I didn’t like it.
    The ticket office divided separate waiting rooms and ACL agents always served white passengers first while ignoring long line of black customers waiting to buy tickets.
    The COLORED room is now used for baggage storage.

  5. I did peek in when i took my nephew to that station to catch SunRail after the opening Lions game, very excited because this is Orlando history getting a facelift instead of torn down!
