What is the X Building?

I work in the Winter Park area (the green arrow) and always noticed this large building next door and its odd shape. I decided to look it up in Google Maps and noticed that the odd shape is indeed an ‘X’. Someone told me it used to be some sort of government office but now it seems to be abandoned (despite the cars parked around it in the Google Maps picture).

If it’s not abandoned, does anyone know what this building is or what sort of operation it used to house? Until I get a credible answer I’ll just assume it is the base of operations for our local chapter of the Avengers or some other such super-hero group. Although if there are superheroes stationed in the place they certainly aren’t doing their jobs.

Let’s hear it for the highest crime rate in Orlando history!

    IIRC, there’s a sign on the Denning side that tells you what it is. Something governmental (State?) but I don’t remember what.

    OK, the address is “941 W MORSE BLVD”. On 10/04/2005 it was sold from the Sate of FL to the City of Winter Park. It appears that it used to (still does?) contain state employment and DCF offices, among other things.
