The Historic Metcalf Building is a Chicago style brick building built in 1923 as one of Orlando’s first trio of ‘high rise’ buildings. Located in Downtown Orlando, this office building is updated with high-end finishes and open concept suites located at Orange Ave. & Pine St. in the heart of Orlando’s Central Business district. The 10-story building includes 9 stories of office suites, first floor retail and a basement bar.
Originally built for the Orlando Bank & Trust Company, the building earned its name from H.W. Metcalf who purchased the building in the 1930’s after the effects of the Great Depression led to the closing of the Orlando Bank & Trust Company.
This Historic building is one of exceptional importance to the shaping of the City of Orlando. In addition to being one of the first high rise buildings in the city, the Metcalf Building was once home to The Walt Disney Company and the Orlando / Kissimmee Host Committee for the 1994 World Cup. The Walt Disney Company took residency in the building in the 1960s during the early stages of developing the acreage purchased for Walt Disney World. The Walt Disney Company and Reedy Creek Improvement District (responsible for handling the water, roads and utilities of Walt Disney World) worked on the top floor of the Metcalf Building until their new office was built on site at Walt Disney World.
The Orlando / Kissimmee Host Committee was largely responsible for ensuring the success of bringing the five games of the 1994 World Cup to Orlando. The games brought an estimated $82 million in economic impact and over 80,000 visitors as well as shone light to the best of Orlando for spectators watching around the world.
Having been completely renovated from the ground up, the Historic Metcalf Building continues to be one of Downtown Orlando’s few boutique office buildings. The unique suites and history associated with the building draw users who are seeking a high-character space in the heart of the World Class City.
