Re: Uptown Shoppes

Interesting choice of making the parking garage jut out of the front like that, it almost looks like that's supposed to be the back of the building. Totally agree, they need to bring the building to broadway sidewalk and have a storefront there.

The old people love Larry Sells. It’s a match made in hell. I think it’s because he hosts the Westport/Valentine associations and HKC for free at the Uptown.
Good to know!

From what I remember, the Shoppes will be 6-7 stories after the parking decks and apartments are added. That's just 2-3 stories shorter than the Ambassador next door.

Re: New Downtown YMCA

I would only ask that others form their own opinions based on interactions with the HKC group itself - rather than the ramblings of an anonymous internet poster. I have ran into HKC many times when I was on my old neighborhood association. They are asshole NIMBYs, every single one I've ran into. Th...

Let's just replace the Costco/Home Depot with a stadium and be done with it.

Re: "Tower East"

If churches served cocktails, more people would attend. Drop the god stuff and serve brunch and I’ll be there every Sunday morning. Perhaps that's what we can use abandoned churches for. Sunday brunch halls. That is... a really good idea. Make the pews into communal seating or something.

Re: 34th Terrace & Main

The worst part is the parking garage for this building. As a cis-gendered straightish white male of Danish ancestry, I would have felt much safer at night parking at the Burger King’s surface lot and walking over.

Re: 34th Terrace & Main

It's too late Darlene, I live right next to this "development" and I can't even use main anymore. It's just non-stop traffic jams. And they built it SO close to the street, I'm fearful that it will blot out the sun this winter and Main street will become just a huge sheet of ice. Won't anyone think ...

Re: Renovations of apartment buildings along Armour Blvd.

Only thing I would change with the Armour bike lanes is to remove one parking space from each corner of the intersections. Since the parking is pushed out an extra 4-5 feet or so, it's really hard to see oncoming vehicles when driving or cycling. I suspect it's also really hard to see oncoming cycli...
