The VUE at Lake Eola is a residential skyscraper in Downtown Orlando. It is the third tallest building in the city; being only two feet shorter than The Peabody Orlando and 15 feet (4.6 m) shorter than the Suntrust Center. It houses 34 floors of condos and has penthouses on its top level. The penthouses have access to the balcony on the 36th floor roof of the building.
When the view opened most of the 375 units had already been sold. The prices for the units ranged from US$500,000 to US$3,000,000 for the top Penthouse units, as they had been sold early before the real estate market bubble hit.
The sides and "crown" of the building light up at night with blue lights. During December the side lights have a light show with red and green Christmas colors.
The building which took about 3 years to construct opened in January 2008 and has about 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) of space. The building's pool is elevated about 100 feet (30 m) in the air, and sits next to its tennis and basketball courts which are also elevated.
