What novel? Did the weekly bother to do any investigating to see if the story checks out? I realize this is just a blog but you guys need to actually report on the story from as many angles as you can. Whatever the case it's an unfortunate name choice.
This is gonna happen and you guys are gonna hate it hahaha I couldn't be happier! Stop buying houses in the urban core and expecting that infill on a larger scale won't happen. It's just plan stupid. With any luck the home prices in the barrio and armory will drop to affordable levels for normal folks! What kind of argument is "the units are too small and have only one window?" That's just urban density. And 4 floors may "tower" over some houses but the one right next door to the south (which is already multi unit rental) is 2 stories and a high peaked roof not to mention it sits several feet above street level. But still I'd like to see a rendering. NIMBY, NIMBY, NIMBY is still all I hear. Move out of the urban core if you don't want vertical development.
4 floors is not a tower by anyone's standards. The sign and office building (what you see in the pic) will be saved. The hotel buildings themselves are totally unremarkable and insignificant. This while argument is so heartless it makes me want to puke. Anyone who says it's not based on NIMBY is just being dishonest. Where is the rendering of the proposed structure? That would be helpful to the debate. Perhaps if Mr Patch had been hired for design services he'd be happier. He's already gotten his share of city money though if you ask me. What was his fee for the tile pictures on the 4th Ave underpass?
What should a 13 story residential building (with ground floor retail/restaurant) look like in 2014 if not this? I welcome examples from other communities.
Let's start using the word cannabis. It's the correct word and has much less stigma attached to it. In good news on the subject of cannabis and PTSD, Will Humble just added it as a qualifying condition under the AMMA!
Wayne, you are the one that doesn't get it. More money does society no good. Facebook, Amazon and Google?! Hahaha what we need is a cure for Cancer! What we need is real clean energy. MBAs can't discover cures or design new technology.
Maybe that's not even you hahaha. Oh well, the games back on! ;)
