Last I knew 10th and main was going to be a greenspace?
Nope.
Any legit plans to build something?

Otherwise, they may as well keep the fountain and nice trees.

Isn’t Kemper gone? Thought he was now working in DC?
I should have been more specific. This would be Jonathan, not Crosby.
There’s always a Kemper in the banana stand.

I think the fountain will stay on long-term.

As for the existing 10th and Main transit center, Makinen said its future reuse is still being discussed.

“We’d like to have some green space with a fountain, a park-like setting,” he said, adding the authority also would be open to using some of the site for a transit-oriented development.

Looking northeast from Charlotte Street. This stop will eventually host northbound Troost MAX buses when the city finishes the two-way conversion of Charlotte.
