A Day of Rest
The price of gas keeps dropping in Orlando, almost as fast as it was trying to go up in the first three months of 2011. I have no idea how low it will go, or if it will reverse and start climbing back up again. This was the Hess station on International and Del Verde Way.
This new building has sprung up like mushrooms along Kirkman just south of the intersection with International. It's typical pre-cast wall allowing for rapid construction. Since I go past this at least once/week, I can assume it's been fairly rapid, but I have no idea when it started. The field on which this construction is going up has been empty for quite a few years. It'll be interesting who moves in. It'll also be interesting to see if any businesses move into the completely empty store block next to the Sweet Tomatoes at that intersection. That's the same block that used to have Books A Million and Micheals stores. With the exception of an Orange County police precinct office, there's nothing in there anymore.
While we were in the general area we needed to stop into several stores at Millenia, T-Mobile to try and get a few phones straightened out and another shop to return a purchase. While waiting for my wife to finish her return I grabbed a photo of the interior. The place seemed active, but we both noticed a few empty stores that have closed up shop.
