Is anything ever going to happen there? Its dragging down the whole neighborhood. Union Hill Founders is below 80% occupancy for the first time ever. The building on the SW corner of 30th & Gillham has only 4 occupied units out of 23 total.

My guess?....there may be something else going on contributing to low occupancy besides an empty building nearby.

Last time I was in the founders it was in need of some upgrades. Though surely the new buildings are nice? Maybe folks don't like living on the Gillham Drag Strip (TM)? Perhaps a nice narrowed street with a bike path would be more supportive.

How could you do bike lanes here? Gillham is only 4 lanes wide where Armour had 6.

Gillham had a de facto road diet for a year or two while those buildings were being built and everything worked out.
