Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

We can build stadiums pretty low though


the goal was to make grand the high point and scale down to the east and west. if you built higher there you'd need a lot of structured parking since it's not well served by transit today.

it's also in the zone for the development moratorium. wouldn't you think it would have prevented demolitions? :roll:

Re: Westport

Wasn't sure where to put this one....I guess the Westport is close enough. Anyone know why this building is currently being demoed? This city is getting knocked down faster than it is being built up. https://goo.gl/maps/fodpk8xnQF32 Photo taken this morning... https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4683/241...

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

Had noticed a little bit of activity around the building at 913 Wyandotte. Always hoped a use would be found for it, but according to Parcel Viewer a pre-demo inspection was in October.

Re: Three Light

pretty sure someone high up there told me three would be announced once they start moving people into two light. two light was not open for the homes tour this weekend -- just the leasing office on main -- so it may be a bit longer.

No need to fix the turn lane back up if you eliminate the south plaza jog...


plaza library generates a lot of trips. why eliminate jog now when streetcar construction will disrupt that segment of main/brookside?
