Re: Ambassador Hotel (1111 Grand)

Great news. I've been impressed with the Ambassador renovation since it opened. Glad to hear they're doing well enough to expand on that scale. Would love it if they could get a marquee restaurant tenant in there to take advantage of that beautiful lobby/bar space but unlikely under Marriott. Is th...

Re: P&L District: 14th & Walnut Site Proposal

Yeah four-way stops are generally better for pedestrians in my experience. I'm pumped to see this intersection converted. Auto traffic is relatively light through there but ped traffic is high. This is a good decision in my book.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Got this email today, ouch: We want to let you know that the price of your Fiber 1000 + TV plan will be increasing from $130/month to $150/month starting with your July bill. (If you also subscribe to optional packages, the prices of those add-ons will remain the same.) I wonder if that means I can...

Re: New Downtown YMCA

What a huge debacle. Is there anyone at City Planning/Council with 2 brain cells to rub together? If they are going to build new, use the entire block. Don't leave the cesspool parking lagoon along the east side of the building. This is absolutely nuts, beyond belief. This project's new constructio...

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

It seems reasonable that any development in Washington Park should go UP rather than the sprawled campus in the rendering. The park could still mostly be kept intact if 2 taller (high-rise) mixed-use buildings (office/residential) were built. The new residents (along with the new res project on the...

I don't get this. If you don't want big box stores then why do you live in the suburbs which are built around big box stores? This is an honest question.

Can confirm that railroads have been approached about using the North Loop project as an opportunity to build a new crossing that would allow them to straighten out the kinks in the system around the river crossing.

Makes sense, the largest warehouse inventory metros are almost always going to places with wide open spaces and lots of cheap land that you can build on.


I just love that it is a place name. One can imagine it located somewhere west of Tatooine.

Re: AMC and Ten Main Center

I'd have to imagine that the proximity of the Main St. transit hub also plays a significant role in the difficulty of finding a commercial tenant for the southeast corner. Was that a Commerce branch at some point? Always seems like a weird space to me, though I'm sure the transit center doesn't hel...
