Last week’s auction however, only yielded a high bid of $7.9 million so he pulled the Firestone off the market.


Anyone know the market rate value for this property?

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Listening to Kevin Collison on KCUR's 'Up To Date'...
Did I hear him correctly? Did he say that the riverfront was the only downtown site pitched to Amazon? No North Loop or East Village?

Edit: Yes, he just repeated that. Sad to hear.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

Someone just posted a photo on Reddit saying it's a go. I'm not sure how to upload photos here, but dear god tell me that's not what it will look like That image is the southwest corner (garage) and appears to be correct.

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 ...

I see.... I'm gonna guess HighTower Group since Centric is moving out of the other half of their current building. That would free up that streetcar facing property for redevelopment. But again, I have no idea.
