They will never need it. They probably won’t exist in 20 yrs.

Re: OFFICIAL - Strata (H&R Block's 2nd Tower)

Lucas talks out both sides of his mouth on most things, it's kind of his brand. I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that quote, given that it was to the star. He certainly tailors his message to his audience. Consider the Biz Journal a week or so ago. That interview definitely gave a different flavor.

I like it. Some improvements to 5th and Walnut should go with this that somehow let the streetcar go after it stops at the station vs. having to inch forward 3 feet and stop again.
Great idea. Need to install an all mode 'stop' for streetcar crossing.

More on the USDA move.

Its idiotic that the city is going to subsidize this federal agency's payroll.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Yeah, that was really encouraging. There were a couple of encouraging quotes. One being his sentiment that incentives have been used for every mediocre project that comes along instead of pushing for something big, like a 40-story tower or something.

Re: Companies moving downtown

I thought that the 13th/Grand site already had a TIF approved and the previous council activated that TIF (which was set to otherwise expire). So, how could they get an abatement on the property too? Unless they are foregoing the TIF? Or, that means 13th/Grand is not the site.

Re: Companies moving downtown

I guess it could be a 5-story, 1000 space garage w/ a 12 story building on top. That wouldn't surprise me.

But those are steps going up with the incline. It says the building will step down with the incline.

Re: North Plaza Hotel- 46th and Broadway

The quote says "the buildings will step down with the incline". "with". So, I read that to mean the step down will occur as the building progresses up the incline. Not the other way around.

Can you even have density without walkability naturally increasing though? I don't think I could name a place that's dense yet unwalkable. Even if the streetscape is total trash, you'll still have everything a shorter walking distance away. You can definitely have density without walkability. Its n...
