The owners of the historic Angebilt building in Downtown Orlando have made the decision to sell to new owners.
The Angebilt Hotel, located at 37 N. Orange Avenue [GMap], opened in 1923 and was at one time the city’s tallest building topping out at 11 stories with 250 rooms. A roof-top sky deck provided unobstructed views of Lake Eola and Downtown Orlando but the top floor was destroyed by a hurricane in the 40s.
The Angebilt was home to the University Club, two separate radio stations, and hosted big names like Henry Ford and Thomas Edison and in the 1990s it served as the temporary home of the Orange County Courthouse while the new building was erected up the street.
RealTrend, Inc., a commercial property development and management company based in Orlando, has announced to the current tenants of the Angebilt that they are selling the building, with a scheduled closing date of January 3, 2019.
Estoppel Certificates, a signed document used in third-party transactions confirming things like rent and lease expiration dates, were sent out on Thursday, November 8 to tenants of the building to sign and return in preparation of the expected sale.
Bungalower has been unable to confirm who the new owner will be but we have been told that they are a co-working company.
