I don't consider any of those truly divisive.
On the surface no. However, I am willing to bet you 3 Guy Fieri tacos that one of those issues will get blown out of proportion.
Sure, and then they end up passing anyway. :roll:

Re: OFFICIAL - Opus Development (formerly Faultless Linen)

Supposedly the land sale will finally occur this summer. Can't believe it's taken Opus this long to get this going. There is some indication that Opus might be teaming up with another developer, but will keep the design we've already seen. I’ve heard the original design is dead and construction is ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Hampton Inn (16th & Main)

The ground floor facing Main actually looks pretty good. Nice materials, lots of transparency for the lobby and coffee shop. Eager for the March opening as this corner needs a jolt of activity.

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Walnut is being reconfigured this year to pass directly through the Market, just like it used to do before the 50s. Dave, can you fill us in on any more details? What are the reasons they're doing this? The goal is to put some on-street parking closer to the eastern retail stalls, which have strugg...

Re: Status and future of the River Market area??

Writing has been on the wall for awhile. Maybe we can redo that whole building and reopen walnut? Yes. A few things: 1. Walnut is being reconfigured this year to pass directly through the Market, just like it used to do before the 50s. 2. A replacement tenant has approached the city. 3. The Arabia'...

It's definitely another amenity gone. Now it's send people to Halls or the plaza.

Anybody know if bringing 9 highway down to grade can be separated from the north loop decision?
Sort of. They're related, obviously, but can be done as independent projects. The approach for MO-9 depends on the decision for the North Loop.

It's a realization that state and federal funding hasn't materialized to build the system as proposed. California has a pretty extensive State Rail Plan that has the...

Why are you a supporter of hers? I have disagreed with her one item in her entire first term on the council, but we are in total agreement on everything else. I also believe she's one of the most authentic politicians I've ever met, and a nice contrast with Mayor James but without the wild policy s...
