Currently, developers are offering purchase reservations for residential units, Mysk Condos at Everest Place with prices starting from $325,000.

Nickelodeon has a long history with Orlando, including the long gone but much loves Nickelodeon Studios in Universal Studios Florida, which at the time served as the network's East Coast production hub as well as a tourist destination, producing shows here in Orlando including Kenan & Kel, and Double Dare.

The studios sadly closed on April 30, 2005, to make way for The Blue Man Group which too has since long gone.

Then there was the Nickelodeon Suites Resort that opened in 2005, just outside Walt Disney World, that eventually closed its doors in May 2016, before being converted to a Holiday Inn.
