Nice, hopefully the parking lot mentioned is also developed even if just a garage with streetfront retail.

I'd also develop the parking lot facing E. 18th and McGee.

A big get would be the Locust St. parking lot. It's big enough to have a below-grade garage and apartments above. If one could assemble it with the parking lot to the south clear to E. 18th Street, one could put in a pretty large apartment building with some retail facing 18th Street, and provide a good number of parking spaces below grade.

Bryant said that his partnership, 1729 Grand LLC, is investigating several redevelopment opportunities for the headquarters property, which besides the two adjoining buildings that make up the headquarters includes surface lots of 44,000 square feet to the south and 35,000 square feet to the north of the buildings.

Bryant said his group is talking to hotel groups about potentially developing on one of the lots. It is exploring the possibility of building a 600-space garage on the other to serve the site's new users and provide additional parking for the surrounding Crossroads Arts District.

The developers also are looking at several options for the buildings, including as much as 180,000 square feet of office, which is twice the volume 3D Development and co-developer Copaken Brooks helped create in the Corrigan Building.
