Maybe I've missed the answer, maybe I've even asked the question but why isn't the empty block where the ballet school was to go being talked about? Not just here but anywhere? That seems to me like the ideal place.

Empty Block to the east of PAC is going to be a 300+ room hotel. The block to the south is going to be something else as well.

Not sure this has been confirmed. Do we have anything solid here or just that a hotel of that size is an ideal/desired potential use?

It has been confirmed as in the streetcar authority is telling people that the lot has plans to be developed as a 300 room hotel and is no longer available.

Thanks. Glad to hear it's not going to just sit empty. Does seem like a good place for another hotel.
