Midtown Opportunities, the Miami developer and owner of the Orlando Sentinel's old downtown headquarters, has revealed some of their redevelopment plans for the former newspaper complex.
Midtown is undertaking a nearly $75 million redevelopment project with the eventual end result being a mixed-use development — with office, hotel, retail and parking components all planned and currently in the design phase — as reported by the Orlando Business Journal.
Midtown purchased the Sentinel property back in 2016, and their leasing agreement with the Sentinel was set to expire in 2023. But the Sentinel's staff left the building last year, amidst an ongoing pandemic and a lawsuit filed by Midtown against the Sentinel's parent company — Tribune Publishing — for unpaid rent.
