You can see that borded up concrete pillbox down the street from that angle. I'd recognize that structure from anywhere lol.

I'm by all means a fan of density and affordable housing. Just kind of surprised this one got approved and the developer definitely seems kind of shambly. Hopefully it turns out well.

Westside Townhome Proposal Rec Delayed by Plan Commission
A proposal to build nine townhomes on long-vacant property at 29th and Belleview was delayed Tuesday by the City Plan Commission over a procedural glitch and complaints by some neighbors about communication issues.
