City garage tenants fear ouster by Orlando Magic

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 <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PLREC000041" title="Amway Center" href="/topic/sports/amway-center-PLREC000041.topic">Amway Center</a> 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.
