Re: Misc Crossroads News

The building is located in CC, but I put it in this thread because the property was sold along with the surface parking lot between 19th and 20th along grand. As that is one of the major eyesores in the Xroads, a change...

Re: Bike Lanes

Plus, as mentioned, there is construction blocking the lanes at both the North and South perimeter of the PnL District- which is where StrangerThings said he never sees anyone. I see people in the Xroads pretty much everyday after work. There are definitely commuters who use it.

Re: New Downtown YMCA

Is a YMCA really considered a big "get" for downtown? Are they relevant anymore with the abundance of gym/healthclub offerings that exist? It seems a shame to be demolishing the back 2/3rds of this building along with the entire interior space. Once gone, we will never get this performing...

Solar, wind, batteries tech and cars (tesla), equipment needed for the infrastructure related to solar, etc. Focus should be on (re)training people from that area. And of...

Re: The Future of Crown Center

You can see that they had to sell off C3b, C3a, and C1b because time was up on incentives and it needed to get developed to receive the approved incentives.
