The Church Street Exchange building [Gmap] is quickly filling up with some of the best tech minds of Orlando. The Canvs co-working space (Website), a Bumble and Bumble school, Trend Studios, and a juice bar are some of the gems within this historic building. Yet there are still some holes we’d like to see filled.
Namely this space on the corner of Pine and Garland. Some may recall that a few years ago it lived on as an art space. Lately it has been sitting empty. We wish it was occupied by an anchor store, something that played on the strengths of the neighbors … like tech.
We wish this shop was an Apple Store.
With all of the techies under one building like this, it could potentially become ground zero for tech-preneurs, this could be a great opportunity to build relationships with new up-and-comers, sponsor new companies, and experiment with new tech.
It also has the added benefit of bringing more retail to downtown.
Editor’s Note: If all else fails, we’d also be fine with a Sweet Tomatoes.
Brazilian tourists don’t shop downtown.
Crispers is so much better then Sweet Tomatoes…. just sayin
Who remembers when Jungle Jims was there
YES. How do we not have an Apple store downtown?
I miss it! I grew up wanting to get married next door. Bring back the cool indie shops, there was a rad place to make jewelry .
Sweet Tomatoes??? Aim higher , please.
Then also a Whole Foods, or Fresh Market next to it
I think an Apple Store would do great downtown. It’s always a nightmare going to Millennia or Altamonte. Make it happen Bungalower!
Seiji, but they both involve fruit! 😉
Apple Store and a Sweet Tomatoes are so completely different!
