  1. I've always thought this was such a cool building. I hope the renovation keeps the unique elements of the buildings like the glass bricks and flatiron layout.
  2. I'd probably just try to sell to Ancorian or whoever owns the building now.
  3. Swing and a miss. Another suburban-style car-oriented in a potentially walkable neighborhood.
  4. They've been growing grass on the old YMCA lot for years now.
  5. Still would be faster than the time it takes to get a burger there.
  6. It's a nice idea, but the coffee plant is nowhere near as attractive as the Pearl Brewery. Once you gutted the manufacturing equipment, there won't be much to look at. Razing the whole facility and redeveloping from the ground up makes the most sense.
  7. Apparently, the barber shop next store door is getting tired of people asking about it, they've made custom stickers that say "Coffee shop still not open"
  8. Admittedly, I am pretty pessimistic for this specific area. The East Village project won't be directly facing the cap and cover park (which looks to start at Lamar St), and it will be losing Polk St connectivity to the GRB. It's also important to keep in mind that Klyde Warren Park was anchored on both sides by high rises, hotels, and cultural institutions. EaDo is still a lot of old warehouses with spatters of townhome farms.
  9. It will be harder to determine exactly what the feel of the area will be after the 45 reroute. All the new bars and restaurants in this area will now be immediately facing a massive freeway. And of course everything on the other side of St.E will be demolished. The noise and visual blight may be enough to kill this part of town.
  10. A new brewery literally a block from 8th Wonder? I'm starting to wonder how many craft breweries this city can absorb...
  11. There's still Kombat Kroger and Phoenicia in close distance. Not exactly a food desert.
  12. One Shell Plaza? Shell's vacancy is putting a million square of primo class-A space on the market. Good access to mass transit. Lots of parks and amenities. And walking distance to city hall which will make future bribes very convenient.
  13. $1.3 million seems like a lot of money to build out a restaurant space. Can any industry people comment?
  14. Not that often. Though it might be more and I might just be sleeping through them.
  15. I moved last month and have really been digging it. They did a great job renovating the building. The train can be pretty loud but I've lived in a few different places in the East End and have always lived close to the train tracks. I don't really mind it.
