Council holds both Strata office tower on Five Light and 3rd & Grand office building. Also, Quinton Lucas voted against them and lost my vote for mayor.
Not sure it matters. I don't get why they are trying to fast track it through the approval process when they don't even plan to break ground until the Fall 2019. If would be one thing if they planned a Spring ground breaking.

Is it just me or does Lucas seem to be getting super snippy on Twitter toward anyone that questions him on policy? Especially with this and the affordable housing trust fund.

presumably there is value in progressing through council approval when it comes to securing tenants in advance.

Yeah, I'm sure potential tenants don't want to languish in uncertainty like Cordish when the council goobered up the Three Light negotiations. That shit was supposed to break ground in October.

This is just approval to begin making a deal...which would then need to come back and be approved, plus other hurdles. Still a long way to go.

Why do they name all them buildings Light? It is getting real old. Why not mix it up, like Sky, or Earth.

I finally agree with you on something here. I guess Cordish is just lazy but this specific tower will be called "Strata" which Is a welcome change from "Light".
