Behind the deal: Historic Mills 50 building lands new user

By: Jack Witthaus - Staff Writer, Orlando Business Journal
Jun 29, 2020, 7:00pm EDT

Tom Nickley keeps waking up at 2 a.m. thinking about his company's new office space. 
 
That's because he can't stop envisioning the possibilities for his residential real estate firm The Nickley Group's future office in the Cameo Theater at 1013 E. Colonial Drive — the highly recognizable 80-year-old building in the budding Mills 50 district. He signed a deal June 26 to occupy the roughly 4,200-square-foot space later in the year for his 35 or so agents. The Nickley Group is affiliated with Austin-based real estate company Keller Williams Realty. 
 
Billy Rodriguez and Colette Santana represented the Orlando-based landlord, 1013 Colonial Ventures LLC, in the five-year deal, and Mark Arnold, with Keller Williams, represented The Nickley Group. Orlando-based landlord 1013 Colonial Ventures LLC purchased the building for $338,900 in February 2013, ac ...

Fun Facts About the Orlando City Lions

In case you didn’t know, Orlando has a new MLS soccer team, the Orlando City Lions. They’re doing great this year and in light of that fact, we want to share a few fun facts about the team and its inception. 
 
The club’s founding president, Phil Rawlins, started the process of bringing an MLS soccer team to Orlando all the way back in 2010. His goal was to establish a regular attendance of 15,000 people, which is why the hashtag “#mission15k” was born in 2013. On October 16, 2014, the groundbreaking was done for the team’s stadium, which is now located on the west side of town along Church Street. 
 
This stadium is absolutely beautiful, and on March 8, 2015, we filled it to a capacity of 62,510 purple-clad fans cheering on the Lions. We’re proud to say that no city money was used to build the sta ...

Today I want to take a minute and go over some of the things that make Orlando a great and fun city to live in.
Of course, Orlando is known for Disney World. Orlando is one of the theme park capitals of the world, and Disney has multiple parks here: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and more. Other notable theme parks include Universal Orlando Resort, Seaworld, and LEGOLAND.
If you would rather spend the day outdoors, boaters and fishers can explore thousands of lakes and rivers. The East Coast is just a short drive away, and if you head west, you will find the Gulf of Mexico.
There are also 150 local golf courses, so there is plenty of golf to be had by all!

There is something for everyone in Orlando!

If you are more interested in walking and hiking, there are more than 60 miles of trails to explore in Orlando alone. You can hike, bike, walk, o; ...
