Re: OFFICIAL - Wallstreet Tower (formerly US Bank Tower)

I went by to check it out- here's a few questions. 1) How is the Valet allowed to use the bus stop area? I guess they could switch to 11th when the construction equipment is gone, but it was harsh on those waiting at the bus stop. 2) Who keeps granting permits for these places to park cars on the si...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Unless you're walking by... the view that ultimately matters. The more important views are looking south from the loop and looking east/northeast from the convention area. It is a convention hotel after all. If the crossroads hates their view so much, then maybe they should be building the area up ...

Re: 911 and 915 Broadway to become loft apartments

As a resident of this building since inception, I wouldn't be surprised if this place is sold off from Yarco (my fingers are crossed). They've been letting the maintenance and cleanliness slide, but as of late it's really nosedived. Management is nonexistent (so much so they recently had mounted TV'...

Re: OFFICIAL: Wallstreet Tower ( was:US Bank Tower going condo)

Glad it is happening. Bit worried about the noise for residents in the tower. How would there be any noise? I'm sure the lowest main floor of the tower is the amenity floor with the gym, patio, etc., and this being virtual suites (I'm sure its the same system used in The Grand) there should be no n...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

They do this every Thursday as Ford is a sponsor. The vehicles don't block pedestrian access and are on Cordish owned property. There have been some 311 complaints but those always come from road closures, as to be expected. From what I've read on here, many members are not fans of road closures. C...

https://i.imgur.com/3nvPdtG.jpg Why does the city keep granting permits for this? Not only is it blocking the sidewalk, but it's also a hazard for those using the crosswalk since it blocks sightlines. (The Grand side is even worse...)

Re: Broadway

Here's public works newest invention- the reusable crosswalk timer! For use when those troublesome trucks keep knocking your expensive poles over. Simple fix- put a tire on the bottom to just role it back upright!

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

Yes I know the long term plan. I don't know why that would at all influence this idea. It's quick to implement and can be reversed if it impacts anything negatively. Sorry. My thinking was that they would need to be closing the NB lane for construction while they are building the bike lane on to it...

Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

The hotel finally lost the loading zone in front of the apartments/Jimmy Johns on Grand! Now the zone is confined to the area directly in front of the main entrance.
