Re: “Goodbye Flycatcher, Hello Seven-Story Apartment Building on Fourth Avenue

From what I understand, the building where Flycatcher is located is three, not seven stories. The Weekly should correct that important error.

The city and the federal govt put tens of millions into the trolley. The entire point of public transportstion is for people to live near it. It literally makes no sense to have a trolley while discouraging or fighting the inclusion of hundreds of new residents, many of them professionals and non-students to this block.

New retail for 4th Avenue may seem like a bad thing now, but I can imagine a few years from now that this high-quality retail will force the many landlords along 4th and 6th who have not upgraded their properties in decades to finally step up to the plate.

Better local tenants would jump at the chance to rent higher-quality space if it existed on 4th and to have a crack at turning the new residents into steady customers. These prospective tenants shop, party and spend their money somewhere in Tucson. Hopefully as the Avenue improves they will spend it there, which will keep the businesses thriving.

Change is by definition difficult. Hopefully these developers will vastly improve that block. Regardless of the slant of this article, I know that is their intention.
