Maudlin International (Website) is applying for a variance from the Board of Zoning Adjustment to erect a 54 foot tall, two-sided 80 SF roof sign on their new building, to be built on the former home of Merita Bread.
The Merita Bread building was demolished in August, 2015, which we wrote about HERE. The iconic sign is currently part of the neon sign collection owned by the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park.
Maudlin International, plans to build a 77,600 SF truck dealership and service center on the land, with parking and display areas, all adjacent to Interstate 4. The aforementioned sign will be installed on the west side of the development.
For more details on the project, see the slideshow below.
Better yet, it’s on Google earth. 28deg36’19.03N,81deg21’31.74W
Yep its on the west side of the tracks between winter park station and the US 17 bridge.
Half of the merita sign is at a warehouse across the street from little 500
Is that true Rick Cintron? Now we have to go snap a photo!
If you ride Sunrail you can see the Merita sign laying in the Morse parking lot in the sun for almost a year now.
How about they get to build the sign, if it smells like bread baking?
