I have always felt that the only way we turn around the 18th & Vine district is to back fill the east crossroads along 18th & 19th Streets headed toward Paseo. Perhaps a streetcar leg connecting Main to 18th & Vine will be the only way this happens.
I totally agree- and frankly, I'm sure most people on the council even agree. Which is why it was so odd that the LCRA tried to nickle and dime the abatement request for a proposal of 104 units at 18th and Holmes. The developer is walking away (it seems) and because of the uncertainty in the abatement process, I'm sure you will not get any more proposals for that corridor for at least another few years.
