Good comments FangKC. All true. I specialize in this issue and I have been watching the Plaza trees closely. The key reason for so many dead trees on the Plaza this year is the salt. They are spreading too much salt. They are spreading it too sloppily and are throwing it onto the tree wells. They need to use a different, less harsh chemical. They also need to bring a water truck through in the early spring to flush the salt down before the tree starts pulling all the poisoned soil moisture in to prepare for bud swell and break.

They blame the trees, but they need to blame their snow contractor.

Is there anyone communicating this to management?

Serious question, don't know if they work with the city on landscaping, sidewalk trees etc.

Westport had this same problem about 5 years ago and poisoned over 50 street trees. They got serious about tree health after that and the WRBL started educating the property owners and managers about proper snow treatment. They understand the value those street trees provide and want to preserve that resource.

Was that when they built the human cages to protect the trees?

45th & Summit apartment building has begun framing. Elevator tower has been sitting there for a little while as they built out the underground parking area.

Nobody is building condos. But they will all become condos when the money flies like it did a decade ago. If it ever does.

There's not enough information to be certain either way on this one. It just says six units is being built.

Too bad St. John is moving — I feel like it is one of the last truly luxury brands on the Plaza — but glad they will remain in the market.

I hope Taubman can fill the space with two brands as unique and upscale as St. John. It’s a primo corner spot by Apple and Tiffany.

I had no idea this store existed until today, but i wouldn't consider myself their target demo.

Sounds like it'll be divided into two smaller tenants.

Gap is no longer moving to a different space - the plans 'fell through' due to lease negotiations not working out. Something doesn't sound right - the relocation had been communicated for months and at the last minute falls apart because they couldn't agree on a lease?
