Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I have heard talk that Amazon might be considering buying Cerner. Well not exactly a purchase, but it does appear that a partnership between Amazon and Cerner may be happening. I don't know if it would significantly help our chances for HQ2, but it sure doesnt hurt: https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/22/...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Can't remember if anything is planned for 27th or if that was just remediation / removal of a dangerous building. IIRC, at the same time the LCRA awarded the northeast corner of 27th and Troost to UC-B/Milhaus, Botwin was selected to develop the SE and SW corners. As far as I know, no details or re...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

I’m pretty bummed they’re planning on demolishing the market building. Yeah, me too. Maybe a solution can be reached where that building is saved, which would reduce the number of units to alleviate the "parking problem". I feel like the neighbors on the 3500 block of Harrison might be th...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Peter Cassel of MAC Properties spoke at the HPNA meeting this evening about the developments on Troost and Cherry. At the beginning, he framed all of this as one project. He didn't go into the specifics, but I'm guessing Cherry might be part of the same financing on Troost and might help add a littl...

Re: Troost developments

It looks like the existing house is being used as a B&B, so I'm guessing these new units would have the same use.

Re: Troost developments

That is on the 44th St side. This is on the corner, so it faces Troost as well.

There is a separate parcel to the north owned by the same person that is only on Troost. That is where the building was demoed and where the new garage/coach house will be going.

Re: Troost developments

Any interesting project with 6 apartment units has shown up in the Development Tracker off the NW corner of 44th and Troost, going behind the house that is there now. It looks like what is now a large garage is going to be expanded to a 3 story building with 5 units and a new garage with 1 more unit...

The whole thing just needs to be razed and redeveloped.

Wasn't there talk a while back about apartments going on the west end of the "shoppes"? I'm guessing that's dead.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

Extending through Waldo no the CCROW (and then maybe down to Three Trails/Cerner) might be the most useful extension, but I think there is still too much neighborhood opposition, so it didn't get might vote. Independence Ave would be a good extension, but I voted for Linwood to Michigan (somewhat se...

Photo update on The Tudors Townhomes - one of the buildings is rising up. I think there will be 3 more like this.

It looks like there is a new sign up from the leasing company on the 31 Levy/Velvet Freeze building. I'm not sure if they are waiting to sign retail tenants before ground breaking, but it does look like this project is still in the works and not dead as has been suggested.
