Description

The Kuhl-Delaney Building, located at 69 East Pine Street in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 2002. In 1882, James Delaney opened a grocery store in a wooden building at the corner of Pine Street and Magnolia Avenue. The building caught fire on January 12, 1884, and the fire spread to most of the business district, making it the worst fire in Orlando history. Delaney and Edward Kuhl constructed the Kuhl-Delaney Building, also known as the Phoenix Building, at the former site. In 1978, the building housed the Mather furniture store. In 1981, the building was renovated to accommodate an office for an architect. The renovations included the addition of a 1,500-square-foot mezzanine, the removal and modification of the ground floor facade, and the addition of tinted-glass windows to replace the original storefront display windows.
