Orlando Sentinel Redevelopment Block

The Orlando Sentinel's location has a plan for redevelopment
(Teresa Burney)

There is a proposal to build apartments, a hotel, offices and retail shops at the southeast corner of N. Orange Ave. and E. Colonial Ave., the current site of the Orlando Sentinel's offices and production facilities.

The Orlando Sentinel, owned by Tribune Publishing, does not own the two-block site. It has a 10-year lease, scheduled to expire in 2024, from Tribune Real Estate Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of Tribune Media, formerly Tribune Co., the Sentinel's former parent.


The proposed master plan calls for development to roll out in six phases. The first two phases include the block south of Concord Street, home to parking lots and two small businesses that lease space. Phases three and four include the current site of some of the Orlando Sentinel's offices and parking. Phases five and six are bordered by E. Colonial Drive and N. Magnolia Avenue, the current location of the printing presses and parking.
