Re: Beacon Hill

There is a proposal to demolish the buff brick building behind the Christian Church Hospital at 27th and Paseo and replace it with a 96 unit group living rehab facility. It is a companion building to the hospital and I believe is was originally housed nurses. The duplexes and West Paseo would also ...

Re: Real Estate Listings of Interest (Metrowide)

I love the house. Architecturally unique and a ton of potential. I would always look up at that house driving by on 169, the views have got to be killer. I believe this is Marilyn Barth (the listing agent)'s personal home. She is the Barth of Barth Real Estate, a very well known real estate agent/de...

Re: EV charging in condo garages

Re: East-West Transit Options Built into Streetcar Spine

When studied during the original streetcar route alignment survey, I believe Independence ave rated second highest for streetcar potential behind Main, (ridership and development) and I believe 63rd/Linwood also scored high for development but low for ridership, due to the dilapidated nature of the ...

Re: COVID19

The "Trump Economy" was mainly built on unnecessary tax cuts and stimulus when at the time the US should have been raising taxes and cutting debt since the strong economy (that he inherited from Obama) was on the up and up in preparation for an eventual downturn. Except, you know, he did exactly the...

Re: Improving the AT&T Longlines Building

There is a similarly ugly Longlines building in Manhattan as well. It's a prime location, so would be really positive if it is transformed to residential and the nearby jail can be consolidated to a regional justice center in another location.

So, would there be a CID district on each side of 670 to help pay for this? With how cheap capital is and more projects inbound, it seems like a great idea and time.

Re: OFFICIAL: Port Authority Riverfront Project

I don't think the STL project will happen but that's not the point. This sort of plan would look great at the Rivefront. However, I think that I'd rather see RF built out quickly with 7-11 floor buildings than slowly with highrises. I'm not disagreeing but this is where code runes into reality. The...
