City View Apartments working on mural to highlight Parramore leaders

The City View Apartment complex in downtown Orlando is planning to upgrade its facade with a new mural that will honor local community leaders.

The mural was previewed by Commissioner Regina Hill during Monday’s meeting of the Orlando City Council. Hill, who represents District 5 where the apartment complex is located, indicated that the mural would stand seven stories tall on the building and would commemorate the historic value of Parramore.

The mural will honor leaders who have passed away, but whose impact reverberates throughout the community.

According to Hill, the mural will cost approximately $100,000 to fund and approximately $60,000 has already been raised. Hill made special note to thank the group at City View for their efforts in cementing a part of history.

“I thank you for allowing us to have access to those walls to commemorate those great champions and trailblazers that came before us,” said Hill.

Downtown Orlando is no stranger to public art murals, with displays across multiple businesses and government buildings throughout the area.
