AMWAY CENTER – Downtown Orlando sets a new standard for entertainment and sports facilities nationwide with the new Amway Center, scheduled to open fall 2010. At 800,000 square feet, the state-of-the-art facility will replace the existing Amway Arena with twice the amount of space, 18,500 seats for NBA games and an on-site parking garage. Amway Center already is transforming the surrounding neighborhood, now home to luxury apartments and an array of unique retailers and restaurants.

ARTS DISTRICT – Opera or comedy, orchestra or pop, abstract-formism or street art. Downtown Orlando has it all in visual and performing arts, with the Arts District developing into a welcoming and exciting place for residents and visitors alike. Major venues include the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre, current host of Orlando’s Broadway Across America series and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra; the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, home of the Orlando Ballet and Orlando Opera; and Amway Arena, host to major touring acts such as Britney Spears and Cirque du Soleil. There’s also the City Arts Factory, with 8,000 square feet of gallery space, plus Mad Cow Theatre; SAK Comedy Lab; NV Studio Gallery; Neu America Art Gallery; Grand Bohemian Hotel Gallery; Roho Art and Coffee; and the Pound Gallery. And there’s more to come. The new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, set to break ground in late 2010, will have 2,700- and 300-seat theaters created to host a variety of artists and performances.
