Business owner Timothy Adebule (Three Masks) talks about a proposed sale of the building that houses his store, on Tuesday, September 13, 2011. Orlando City Hall is working on a plan to sell the city-owned parking garage across from the new Amway Center arena to a development company controlled by the Orlando Magic. The garage is at West Church Street and Hughey Avenue and its ground floor is filled with tenants who are largely African American-owned small businesses. Council is expected to decide next week whether to move forward with a feasibility study and purchase option agreement. The plan raises a lot of questions, including price and why no other interested buyers will have a shot at this property.
