• Renderings show new Orlando Magic entertainment complex


    ORLANDO, Fla. - WFTV learned the entertainment complex the Orlando Magic want to build will probably boast attractions like you’d find at theme parks, not in downtown Orlando.

    The $200 million entertainment complex will be built at Division and South streets.

    New renderings show huge outdoor television and media screens, and an open plaza that includes a six-story shopping and office building.

    It also shows media kiosks for outdoor concerts and farmers markets.

    The renderings show that the main six-story shopping and office center would be covered with digital screens.

    Planners said they expect the complex to be busy, even when the magic are not playing.

    Documents show the project will be an intensified entertainment district, comparable to Citywalk at Universal Studios.

    “CityWalk has gotten so touristy, it’s like nobody wants to go out there,” said Orlando resident Ellie Crossman.

    Residents said they hope the plaza offers the same type of atmosphere as CityWalk.

    “I mean, I think it’s a great idea. There’s a lot of potential downtown that hasn’t really been tapped into yet,” said resident Ryan Adams.

    City leaders are expected to approve the new plans on Tuesday.
