Re: 3260 Main

I can remember if I posted this before, but they said they have another 2-3 projects planned for Main St but haven't been announced yet. Great! I believe you mentioned the Mattress Store site as one possible project. Any idea on other potential locations? That was the only one they would tell us a ...

Re: 3260 Main

The apartments are aimed towards the 35+ age range, not "millennial apartments" as they said. The finishes in the apartments will be nicer than most new construction and floor plans will be larger than normal. I believe they said a single bedroom will be around $1400 and a 2 bedroom will ...

Re: 3260 Main

Thanks for the update. This sounds like good infill. What was the reaction from the neighborhood? We hosted an event with about 8 neighbors that were all literally right behind this project (and a couple that were on the other side of Main, near Gates) and they all liked it. Surprisingly, the devel...

Re: 3260 Main

Some notes I took from the meeting: The building will consist of apartments, parking, and retail. There will be 3 retail bays with a total space of just under 8k space total for retail. Part of the look they are going for is having a covered walkway above the sidewalk, so they are adding a 6 foot me...

They’ve already abated that.

Something? Or asbestos?


Asbestos. I stumbled upon a star article about it from years ago when reading about an illegal dump site on the east side of town.

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

No longer Marty? We called him out on his term limits. He’s out, Scot is in, Scot is no better. Is there still going to be an election? There was one a week ago. It didn’t go well. Instead, the more YIMBY members of our neighborhood have been organizing despite the HOA. We’ll try again next year.

I’m pretty sure Midtown Plaza is dead. There’s been no updates for a long time and I haven’t seen any permit activity in awhile. Anyone know differently?

Re: Westport

New, larger residential projects should be concentrated on Broadway, Main Street, and Linwood. Empty lots and post-WWII building sites should be prioritized first. Maybe provide incentives for replacing empty lots and surface parking with new buildings. Any time a historic building is going to be d...
