Shipra At Emancipation Ave.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Goggle shows high rise apartments for a Shipra Tower in Sun City, South Africa. Here are the 2 lots, Shipra Emmacipation is about half used by Be Fit, 1/4 parking lot and the other 1/4 is an empty plumbing business. Shipra Tower is an empty lot now.

neat.

if it is apartments, it will say 'conveniently located near light rail station'.

once the trees next to the soccer stadium grow in a bit, it won't be that bad of a walk to the stations in the summer, but that's not an enticing walk in my opinion.

That’s a four block walk at most. The trees over near the Stadium actually provide a decent amount of shade. The trees by Circuit are a bit more sparsely situated, but once they mature will provide good shade on that side as well. 

Maybe I’ve become desensitized due to walking my high-energy dog all over the damn place all the time, but that doesn’t seem like that bad of a walk at all.

no doubt, it won't be as bad as say, trying to walk down Westheimer from Voss to Winrock, but isn't a walk I'd look forward to.

Am I missing something? That walk is fine. Emancipation Avenue could stand a road diet, but it's not that bad.

Plus, you can always cut down Walker and walk on the other side of the stadium. Roughly the same distance.

thanks for the feedback, I know when I drive down Emancipation near here I look at the sidewalks and do not find them at all inviting for a walk, I'm sure I just have unreasonable expectations :D

I mean, if you're judging the walk by looking out the window while driving, I'm not sure that has much value.

well, I've also ridden my bike (trailhead for Columbia tap is right there), on these sidewalks (primarily because cars go pretty fast on the street), but point well taken.
