Building on downtown Orlando's progress

Jerry Jackson | 5/28/2014

With almost $5 billion worth of projects under way or about to break ground in downtown Orlando, civic leaders are soliciting suggestions to ensure the area can improve as a place where people will want to live, work and be entertained. Project DTO, short for Project Downtown Orlando, is led by volunteer businesspeople, representatives of the arts and sports communities, longtime residents and relative newcomers.

Also in this regional roundup, we look at people to know including Glenda Hood, Daniel Polfer and Dawn Willis. Business briefs with companies and cities in the news include: Crescent Communities, Canaveral Harbor, Canaveral Port Authority commissioners, Florida Hospital DeLand, Stetson University’s athletic department, Royal Oak Homes, Tolaris Homes, BRPH, Park Square Homes, University of Central Florida researcher Debashis Chanda, Aerosim Flight Academy, First Green Bank and we offer a profile of Summit Broadband.
