It's too late Darlene, I live right next to this "development" and I can't even use main anymore. It's just non-stop traffic jams. And they built it SO close to the street, I'm fearful that it will blot out the sun this winter and Main street will become just a huge sheet of ice. Won't anyone think of the cars that have to drive by this monstrosity?

Counter-troll 8/10, commendable effort with slight room for improvement.

The worst part is the parking garage for this building. As a cis-gendered straightish white male of Danish ancestry, I would have felt much safer at night parking at the Burger King’s surface lot and walking over.

Darlene you have the strangest and most negative posts... this building looks great and will massively improve the neighborhood. Just curious, what part of the city do you live in?

Although 164939227 & Metcalf is pretty funny, I didn't mean anything offensive. I had seen her earlier post on the Plaza at main street about lots of homeless and now this post on an (IMHO) underutilized but what could be very important part of Main and was curious whether she was in this general area and why her experiences are different than what I was thinking. I also didn't really understand "mykn" posts whether he was serious or joking and why he would feel unsafe.

I think this building is an improvement and would expect to see much greater development begin to occur in anticipation of the street car. There are plenty of underutilized spots, including next door at the Burger King or across the street at the Avis parking lot. I am guessing if Darlene and mykn really live close by they are really going to hate if the Netherlands at 38th and Main gets redeveloped.

I was trolling, Darlene's is an actual troll.

Darlene's standard refrain is "I'm just a woman so I don't like parking garages because they make me feel unsafe, I wish we had endless planes of surface lots instead". That, in good faith, shouldn't be made fun of but instead should be a good chance for us to talk about how to make urban areas more safe for people who are worried about their personal safety. However Darlene is such an obvious troll that I give zero shits, which apparently came across in the effort of my counter-trolling.

Edit: I do legitimately live across from this development, Linwood & Baltimore

I had to check and at 8 blocks to a mile that makes this location 20.6 million miles away. That's most of the way to Mars.

I picture a scene like from the movie Contact where the rich white guy, Hadden, moved to the space station to get away from Earth
