All four sides face downtown....
I’m sorry my post was so terribly confusing that it needed technical clarification.

I hope that someone develops the three parking lots in the near vicinity (across 16th, next door and catty corner across from the Residence Inn garage). If they don't get developed now, I know that they will in the future but the momentum needs to keep building along the Streetcar line. City Club Apartments just began down the way, Three Light will begin soon (hopefully) and this Hampton Inn adds more hotel space to the crossroads. All of these will help businesses and the addition of hopefully more buildings around the streetcar will only strengthen this area. I also like the size of this Hampton Inn. It isn't small but it isn't large. It adds density. The blank brick wall is depressing but it all makes sense because, as stated, maybe they know that someone will come in and acquire the calverts tire place and build something.

Those lots are all owned by one person who just provided the land for this Hampton Inn, except for the one on the SW corner of 16th & Main (which is Helzberg).

The most likely scenario to the north is someone acquires the Calvert's and the parcels to the south and does a proper mixed use development.

Building is topped out and masonry is going up on the facade.

This already looks better than any Hampton Inn I've seen.
