Orlando has approved construction of what will be the city’s tallest building, says its architect.
Wayne Dunkelberger said Zoi House will include retail, office and apartments. “‘Zoi’ means ‘life’ in Greek, so at the very top is going to be a pool and pool deck that looks over the city of Orlando, 300 apartments, underneath that will be 6 floors of office, and below that, parking deck.”
Miami-based MEC Development Associates and architects Baker Barrios have refined the 41-story structure with a gentle, sweeping curve at the building’s most prominent corner at Orange Avenue and Livingston Street, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The developers say 467-ft. tall Zoi House will be taller than the Orange County Courthouse, as well as the SunTrust Center. “The Courthouse is around 419 feet, and SunTrust around 427,” Dunkelberger said.
