WINTER PARK, FL-Police continued their investigation Thursday into the death of local commercial real estate developer Steve Walsh, who was found at his home early Wednesday afternoon. Few details were released more than 24 hours after the discovery, though a police spokeswoman told reporters that the crime scene does not appear to be a random act of violence.

Walsh, 61, the managing partner of Broad Street Partners, was involved in a $250-million mixed-use project called Tradition Towers in Downtown Orlando. Plans for the 39-story twin-building project near Lake Eola include luxury residential condominiums, office and retail space, a full-service hotel and the new home of the city’s University Club.

Other of Walsh’s local projects have run into trouble in recent years, such as the four-story Carlisle condo development in Winter Park, which succumbed to local opposition, and the $200-million Oveido on the Park town center, which was halted by financing and permitting problems.
