A moving experience


For more than nine years Orlando Weekly made its home in a suburban Winter Park office complex, leading any number of out-of-town marketers to call up and blindly ask (and we only share this with you because we're such good friends), "Aren't you the Winter Park paper?" Well, no, not then or ever. But now there's no more room for confusion.

In fact, "no more room!" was the internal rallying cry that preceded our jump last week to larger quarters, giving Orlando Weekly a new home downtown at 111 W. Jefferson Street in the renovated and long-vacant former ABC Liquors warehouse. With a staff that now numbers more than 50 people, the newspaper occupies new quarters with an open interior characterized by wood floors, exposed brick walls and expansive windows that line four sides of the three-story building. (You'll find our offices on the second and third floors.) More important, Orlando Weekly's move represents a deliberate decision to become part of the solution in reviving a downtown that is in danger of being remade to look like everyplace else. Stop by and see how easy it is to preserve something unique. The sign goes up soon.
