|Adventurers Club on this cloudy winter morning. Will it become Orlando's home to Los Angeles-based The Edison?|
|Concept art for the future facade of the building shows two looks. The main section of the building to the right (east) shows red brick along with a smokestack, very reminiscent of a former power plant of which The Edison in Los Angeles actually is built in. To the center, the glass and brass gives that section a very art nouveau look. That is where an outdoor staircase led down to AC's lower level as well as to the offices beneath West End Plaza. So we expect that to be a separate entity from The Edison.|
Not likely that these stairs, seen here in this file photo, would be removed.
And it looks like The Edison's smokestack will stand roughly where AC's tower stood.
|With a completely different look than The Edison, that might be the entrance to The Tunnels. But what are The Tunnels? We don't know yet but people are speculating that it's some type of adult nightlife district. Barbara Jacobs is the Chief Operating Officer of The Edison and Kinetscape, a curiosity shop in Los Angeles. On her Linkedin page here, we see she states: |
I have owned a special events production company for twenty years and I am COO of Kinetescape Inc. Our holdings include the Edison Los Angeles, the Edison Orlando, the Tunnels, Orlando, Clifton's, Kinetescape Couriosities.
|We're certain the Adventurers Club is gone. It appears The Edison is going to replace it.|
|Remaining a mystery for now is the removal of the western service entry to Paradiso 37 and the stairs that were there that ran from Village Lake up to Hill Street.|
|The stairs used to fit between these two buildings. They've been blocked off from public use for more than a decade but their removal is intriguing because The Tunnels would be at the rear of this photo view, beneath West End Plaza. Stay tuned!|
