  1. The parking lot portion of the block is under different ownership.
  2. SRO, means these are not apartments. They are more like college dorms. Typically, SROs are one person per unit, smaller than a studio apartment, and no kitchen.
  3. My sources say the Holiday Inn is going to become a Marriott. Same developer as the Savoy project.
  4. 50 feet is standard for a pipeline easement.
  5. If I'm not mistaken, there is a circa 2007-8 thread about a Hilton Garden Inn proposed for the vacant half block next to the Wedge Tower garage.
  6. I heard something about a Turkish company and a boutique hotel. That's all I've got.
  7. I heard a rumor that this block would be non-highrise apartments. Sounds like the rumor is accurate.
  8. Looks like my sources may be right...http://swamplot.com/airing-out-at-least-the-old-savoy-downtown/2013-05-16/#more-62044
  9. Agree. Along those lines, I also heard an unsubstantiated rumor of another residential project going up on the block immediately north of Skyhouse.
  10. I hear that the Savoy is in contract. Anyone know anything further?
  11. This proposal is really neat. However, the City does not own the needed right of way. Unless the land is donated, the acquisition costs (through eminent domain), would likely reach eight figures. In short, it's a great concept, but unlikely to happen.
