The sale of the 6,198 SF building is meant to facilitate the business’s move into a larger 17,000 SF warehouse just up the street at 700 Harold Avenue [GMap], according to a post earlier this week by Orlando Weekly‘s Monivette Cordeiro.
In Cordeiro’s report, the owner of Skycraft; Allen Fiedler, states that the iconic flying saucer sign on the building will most likely not be making the move to the new location as it was grandfathered in by the City before current ordinances were put into place. He expects to donate the sign to the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati (Website).
Clarissa Howard, Communications Director at City of Winter Park, told Bungalower that an application for the relocation of the sign had not been made at the time of this post. If it meets code, they would allow it, but that any review would have to occur at the time of application.
That being said, the size of the new location would likely be in their favor as sign ordinances take into consideration the square footage of the building the sign would be placed on.
