Kinglyam Posted April 13, 2015 Share Posted April 13, 2015 The transit station is going up quickly - they've been working away on this. The road widening has not started. Regarding the comment made earlier about "negligible residential amenities", there are tons of restaurants around here as well as a Fiesta store, Walgreens, etc. up on Quitman. The neighborhood just doesn't look like Montrose. I forgot about the Fiesta, thanks for the correction. But I don't think it's going to be enough for the proposed development. With the number of people the rail yards would bring in, it looks too small. And, let's be blunt, Fiesta doesn't appeal to the primary market demographic for the mixed-use development. Fiestas are a mostly blue-collar demographic, while most of the new people coming to the yards are likely to be white-collar. I expect most of the residents of the new development (and surrounding redevelopment) to want a higher-end HEB or something similar. As for restaraunts, other than Tex-Mex and fast food, what's in the area? I've never seen anything. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
