Orlando Magic studying redevelopment of city block

Posted: Updated:

The City of Orlando is exploring a deal with the Orlando Magic to redevelop property adjacent to the Amway Arena.

It appears that the Magic will proceed with a study of just what they can do with the 3.3 acres, on which sits a city parking garage and the Orlando Police Department's headquarters. 

Orlando Commissioner Tony Ortiz worked in the police headquarters for over a decade and said the force could use new, state-of-art facilities.   "That building is old. The technology is old.  Law enforcement that we have this day and age is technology-driven.  We need a building that will be technology-driven too."

One possible plan for redevelopment of the city block might include a hotel and headquarters for the Magic, including office space and a fan experience.
