  3. Nonsense. It's hard not to make an erection joke every once in a while on a forum about skyscrapers. What's the prob anyway. All buildings have to be erected don't they? I think a 30 story building would be extremely hot and sexy on that block.

  12. I went back and looked at the renderings that were posted in this thread. They clearly show the brick sections being renovated. I know them well enough to recognize them... each window, door, overhead door, etc. Even the funky entrance on the Nance St NW corner is shown in the renderings. While you would think the demo guy would know what he's doing, and he was VERY clear that they were taking down the entire structure, and even gave me a time frame (4-6 weeks start to finish, which is way more time than they need to remove the old metal structures), that doesn't mean he's correct. But I

  16. That's a pretty important one. The Main and Prairie block across from Moonshiner's is probably mine. Bank of Southwest tower is still a pretty major one.

  26. There are also a lot of coworking spaces in the area, and with the pandemic subsiding it's likely more workers will be returning and needing nearby lunch (and happy hour?) options.

  27. The warehouse has some companies in it. I've seen folks trucking in/out. Unsure what. That said, there is a lot of housing in the area with all the new townhome developments, Forth at Navigation, some of the older townhomes, so, may have a lot of foottraffic. The way I look at it is this: if Tout Suite and Moontower could survive before the townhome density popped off, I'm sure a food court can survive.

  30. His buildings appear to depreciate very fast. He does offer a lot of amenities and a bold taste, if that’s your thing. But if you look at recent sales data at Arabella and Astoria, pricing is way down from original.

  33. Parking Lot, 5 Weed Patch, 3 Parking Lot wins. Plus it's so urban! Ugly urban, but urban. Parking lot puts the urb in urban. Weed Patch makes me sneeze, has snakes and gets mud in my car. Remember when everybody thought this was going to look like Victory Park? Now we are arguing about whether weed patches are better than parking lots. I'm so disappointed in this project that I don't even care about it anymore. Thank Christ for Regent Square and Autry Park and East River.

  34. Unrelated sidebar: I used to wait tables there 15 years ago when it was called Nick's Pasta Place. What a mess that place was. Anyway, some of the regulars would tell me about how the building used to be car dealership and a hot dog stand before Nick bought it and turned it into an Italian restaurant.

  35. There is indeed a "rehab and restoration" exception to the sidewalk requirements, but it only applies in certain circumstances to "work performed by other governmental entities, political subdivisions, transit authorities, or local government corporations." Perhaps the City or some other governmental entity may have repaired and replaced these portions of the sidewalk in conjunction with the street repairs. That apparently would be allowed by the City ordinance. But the development (Hanover) would have been required to submit sidewalk plans before getting building permits, and I'm prett
