At least there is a Pokestop on that lot!

Does that count as retail?

 

This was posted a year ago, so I assume it was the game, but this was posted a year ago, so it might still be the trendy new restaurant theme?

It was (is?) a mobile game app. It was a world wide phenomenon, well at least for a month! We had just had our second child and my wife's cousins (late teens and early 20's) who were in town were really in to it. Would go walk our dog just to catch pokemon. I won't lie, i downloaded it and played for a few weeks. I live less than a block for this lot, and there was a pokemon places there you could catch.

ha, yeah, I know, I was joking, should have put a smiley or something. I was trying to play at the number of poke restaurants that seem to have materialized over night with how quickly the game seemed to take off. I'm waiting patiently for one of them to call themselves the poke stop.

 

The game is still played, I read a headline last week that they just rolled out the biggest update ever, didn't bother to read the article though.

should have realized that, i was thinking "he can't be serious" as i was replying. i was pretty surprised but didn't catch any hint of sarcasm/joking.

 

anyways they are moving along, and Dolce is not. I think I'll put my money on this project finishing first.

There is a construction sign up stating closure for 8/12 and 8/13 all day. Doesn't specify the streets but the sign is on Taft southbound just north of Gray so I assume it is for Alta.

Talked with a rigger today, he said they will be raising the tower crane Sunday. My question was, why didn't they build it higher when they first installed it? More $$$ for Circle 8.

Talked with another rigger today and asked him why they didn't just make the tower crane higher when they first installed it? He said they couldn't get the extra section they needed at the time. They are adding a small section and a full 20' to add to the height necessary to complete the building. They are in the process of taking it apart now.

The new section to be added.
