Re: Three Light

It takes a driving force to change developers plans and it may have to come from downtown associations to gain any traction. Speak out to them if you want a change of Cordish plans. They haven't presented any final plans with any detail for Three, just high level renderings, so it may not be too la...

As great as it would be to restore this building (which is beautiful), this represents an opportunity for a taller building with more use cases and more density. There is momentum downtown and someone will wa...
