Re: OFFICIAL - Bartle Hall Expansion construction

Why they didn't consider also expanding over Broadway on the 12th-13th street block where that parking lot has been for decades--the one where the city issued RFPs. I saw this on a building in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and thought it would be a neat idea to put saved neon signs from around the metro...

Re: Westport

Yes, it seems foolish to use paint when there is the likelihood of a lot of wear and tear, and expansion/contraction of the surface from heat/cold.

Re: 12th and Broadway site: RFP for mixed use

The RFP shows two separate parcels. The question then is should it be developed as two separate projects, or one large one? If Kansas City Southern/Canadian were to be involved, at least with the more southern parcel, it would also likely mean any development could be built all the way south to 13th...
