Re: OFFICIAL - Fairfax Lofts/Hotel Indigo (former Brookfield Building)

This really does look great in person.

Does anyone have a before pic they can post just to remind us how much of an upgrade this truly is.

Streetcar released numbers for ridership in November. We can now compare May-Nov for 2016/2017. Basically it is holding steady with total ridership up in 2017 for the same time period compared to 2016.

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.

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...
