At the very least one would hope for a parking sharing arrangement like the Assurant lot to the south.

Abbott Properties recently acquired the three properties between 1612 and 1616 Grand Blvd. The plan is to replace them with a five-story office building housing the fast growing development firm's future headquarters.
their current HQ ("Crossroads East") is at 19th & grand.

Wait...Sterling Bearing moved? That sucks a lot more than Houston's closing.

Doesn't look like Abbott is actually planning to tear this down.

Developer Matt Abbott plans to spend $6.8 million converting a one-story building in the 1600 block of Grand Boulevard into a high-end event space with a rooftop deck. Next door, Abbott plans to put a “signature” local retailer in the first floor of a three-story building with offices on top. He said he’s in talks with a potential retail tenant.

"Signature" certainly raised an eyebrow here. My definition would be: Halls, Baldwin, Tivol. Does anything else even come close?

Helzberg's?

I have to admit that when I read "signature" my mind immediately went to signature payday loans.
