Re: Westport

4140 is the single story building just south of Westport Ale House. So the new restaurant will be built on the corner of 42nd and Broadway (currently a parking lot) and the existing building will be torn down for parking (11 spots). They are asking for variances in the Boulevard Standards, saying t...

Re: Plaza Residential Development

A group of 20 townhomes on the 4400 blocks of Broadway and Washington are set to be expanded and renovated/revamped. They will be expanded in the rear to nearly twice the size and it looks like there will be significant changes to the facades with balconies added I'm fairly sure these are currently ...

Re: Westside happenings

There are plans to build 5 single family homes at 21st and Belleview. http://i66.tinypic.com/33mbrzr.jpg This is the same developer that built 1120 Missouri in Columbus Park and the design on these will be similar. I really like this model of infill - similar density to townhomes, but you don't have...

Re: Columbus Park Redevelopment

The same developer who built the house at 1120 Missouri Ave has submitted plans to build two similar homes on a vacant lot at 569 Harrison (I believe it is currently a single lot that will be split in two). They are also building 5 in the Westside at 21st and Belleview. Here is what 1120 looks like....

Re: Longfellow development

I can't believe how quickly they renovated this building, and that it got by me without notice. The latter may be true, but no the former. The renovation took several years. I know it had started before mid 2015. Although the signage is new, I believe it has been done for a while now (at least part...

Re: Downtown office vacancy

My napkin math shows that the purchase and lease up to 85% of City Center Square will push the downtown class a vacancy down to around 9% It was unclear to me whether the 85% occupancy rate cited in the article was referring to City Center Square or the Populous building. My initial thought was the...

Re: Troost developments

MAC has renovated numerous historic buildings, but they also tore down the market building for this project and wanted to demo the apartments at Armour and Wyandotte (thankfully, they were stopped). They are hardly preservationists. With this being a new construction project, my guess is they will d...

Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

Yeah, when I didn't see any restaurants with that name, I was thinking/hoping it might just be someone with some pizza money involved in the project.

The PIEA agenda for this week's meeting includes an item for conducting a blight study. I don't see any indication of the plan. Resolution approving ...

Still alive. I have been seeing a number of docs showing up on Compass related to this project. I believe the retail/mixed-use portion of the project has been nixed, but it's going forward as residential.
