Re: Misc Crossroads News

Lane building was still standing today. Looked untouched. I'm no demolition expert, but it seems like this is taking a while.

Glad to hear that it's doing well! I've been concerned that its location further east would make it unpopular.

Obviously that is down the road a bit but it's a good point as the current 3 terminal configuration is not very conducive for a light rail connect.

Re: Misc Crossroads News

The more I think about this situation, the more frustrated I get. Of all the places! A surface lot with virtually no development plans, right next door to a parking garage, made out of the footprint of a 128 year old building, on the streetcar line, in an area of town already blighted with surface l...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

It would be a shame for a building this old to be demolished, even if it isn't an architectural marvel. Seems like at least the facade could be preserved
