Had too much at Noveau Antique? You're in luck!

 

Seriously I don't understand how the east side of Midtown keeps getting this stuff.

This is actually a good development for the neighborhood. The reason the east side get's "this stuff" is because the majority of that side of the neighborhood is families. Now within that 3 to 4 block radius you have a dentist, a nice park, etc. IMO a development like this is better for the quality of life. In much the same way the new Crime Stoppers building serves a similar purpose.

Hey guys?

Do we know what 2202 La Branch is?

 

Edit: Is this the lot that's had the Spine Rehab sign on it for months?

Not sure, im assuming they're taking core samples. I drive past there every day as well. It would be a great location for a cafe. I feel that area has so much residential and is pretty under served. I dont know of any coffee/sandwich shops within walking distance of Baldwin park. 

 

This is on the plat report for next week's meeting - more townhouses :|

"Colina Court on Elgin"

more townhouses = more people 

more people = more demand for retail

more demand for retail = greater chance of cool retail center popping up

all this -> more demand for housing, forcing midrises

 

 

I wonder how long it will be before a developer buys a block of 36 town houses and builds a condo building or apartment building.  It'll be years, but how many years?

Proposed development at Caroline and McGowen dubbed "Midtown Common"

I really thought they were going to wait to try to assemble the whole block, but I'm glad this is moving forward.  This area needs a shot in the arm, which hopefully this development and ATMA across the street will provide.  Fingers crossed for GFR!!!
