Re: Troost developments

3100 block has been fouled for years by disinterested ownership. Hopefully, that's changing now.

Re: Troost developments

It's a special committee put together by the HPNA pres at the behest of a few CHP/JP residents. No online presence AFAIK, but some of them have already met with the city to air grievances.

Re: Troost developments

The people concerned about development live in CHP and Janssen, so if retailers never return it doesn't change anything for them. They will continue to drive everywhere for basics. Their warped sense of urban aesthetics trumps economics.

Re: Troost developments

Hyde Park has started a committee to voice concerns about the MAC development at Armour. Led by Central Hyde Parkers and Janssen Place residents. Focused on restricting the height of the development and maximizing the parking.

IIRC Shields secured a spot on the Freedom, Inc mailer with a donation in the range of $2k. It wasn't much.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Schulte and James have been pretty clear that booting Edgemoor restarts the procurement process. It's not as easy as walking away from one deal and negotiating another.

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The doors that lead into the stairs are limited in the amount of glass they can have. But once you're through the door, stairs on an exterior wall are essentially on the outside of the fire rating line. So: in most construction types (guessing Type II-B with sprinklers here), if the windows are on a...

For a graffiti canvas, it's very thoughtfully designed. I'm sure Foner and Roten will appreciate the smooth texture of the stone.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

TBF that tweet doesn’t say anything. But given their track record on the Plaza it would be surprising if they are gearing up to support the project. Their total focus on the Plaza and “nice” areas of town used to irk me until they showed up in Westport. Now I actually think it’s better when they are...
