I-Drive pedestrian bridge | Eye on Orlando

I-Drive pedestrian bridge


Mango’s Tropical Cafe which is going to be located on  International Drive are looking at ways to ensure tourists can get to where they want to be without the hassle of getting in the car and travelling from one side to another and shifting their toursit dollars with them

Josh Wallack, who is Mango’s chief operating officer said “The development taking place on International Drive Resort Area is remarkable. It is nothing short of a renaissance for the whole area, from the Convention Center to Sand Lake Rd. There are some very good tenants and businesses opening and filling whatever gaps there were south of I Drive Live, which connects it to Pointe Orlando. Looks like a lot of construction now with all of us working, but once these facilities are up and operating, it will create critical mass in the area, and I Drive Comes Alive!”

Although in its intial stages Mango have already brought on board L2 Studios Inc. to help with the concept, Wallack continued “The International Drive Orlando pedestrian bridge connects all 4 corners making it easy to walk anywhere, eases traffic (cars would no longer have to wait for the crosswalks at street level), but this would really positively affect the I Drive businesses and folks north of Sand Lake Rd. The difference in rents and real estate values just a couple of blocks north on I Drive is substantial. North I Drive (South of Universal) needs a good deal of investment and re-development, with several vacant buildings on a major tourist strip. It needs entrepreneurs, people who love Orlando’s Tourist Corridor and have a vision of how they fit into the whole scene. Mango’s Tropical Cafe so proud to be in Orlando and we are ready to do our part for I Drive!”
