This project really changes the look of the riverfront from I-35 . Starting to feel like downtown actually reaches to the river, the next stages will build on that.

So this is an idea I've had for awhile and if I had any means I would do it. I would like to see a no car development on the west side of Berkeley. Right past the train tracks where those fields are. If the streetcar could connect to Berkeley and a large garage was there I think it would be feasible to build the entire neighborhood to the pedestrian scale. It would connect to the rivermarket and Berkeley by foot. Not to mention walking distance to the streetcar. I believe this could easily become not only one of the most enjoyable neighborhoods in the city but also the country. We aren't talking building enormously expensive buildings. Simply banning cars in a small couple block section where everything is mixed use. Wondering what you all think

If you haven't been by this in a while the orange is actually quite striking. Is going to show up from a long distance with that color.

I thought there was a dog something down here? Is that a future thing?

Bar k is basically under the overpass if I remember correctly.

This place looks like a prison in its current state....
