Changemakers: Meet the Orlandoans who are literally building our future

When it comes to building Orlando brick by brick and providing adequate space in Central Florida for the 5.2 million people that are expected to call it home by 2030, the struggle is real.

For our latest Changemaker series, we met up with a handful of individuals who are doing just that by helping reshape the future of architecture in Orlando and make it easier for us all to find a place to live, work and play in our community.

Whether it’s the dedication to our community through the work by Debbie Rodriquez with iBuild Central Florida or John Hursh’s work with Toolbox 4 Life, or local real estate developer Craig Ustler’s fresh take on using and making the most of the limited space we have available to grow, we hope their stories will inspire you to rethink how you view our growing metropolis and dream big about our city’s future.
