^ Disappointing on one hand but on the other If the market isn't ready for a tower there yet it's a good thing not to pursue something bleh. At least it's in the hands of someone who I'm sure is thinking about it's long-term potential and capable of big things.
^ Agreed. Does anyone believe or understand that their might some other development tied to it as the article notes another lot owned by Fox Theater. m I'm not aware of anything tied to the parking garage other than just meeting general parking needs in the district. I can't imagine the proposed gar...
^ I think 10 year is pretty reasonable especially if they have a tenant lined up bringing new jobs to the city... rumor is a large tech tenant is coming to downtown btw but I have no idea where. ^ Like Microsoft? Not them, as dredger says they appear slated for a new Cortex building. I'd like to th...
^ Preservation Board approved, I believe, but Building Commissioner denied re-zoning for the proposal. Not sure what grounds. but it would be different from what Pres Board looked at. Anyway, the appeal is next week to Board of Adjustment: m Funny thing though this is one of those deals where the ap...

Developer is appealing denial to Board of Adjustment.
^ ridership is well above projections (although it's still early) and Council is now looking at authorizing the purchase of several more cars. Looks like there may soon be a proposal released to expand it down to Country Club Plaza. Would love to see it here.
^ I really do think having a Saint Louis Streetcar would cement downtown/midtown as an unquestionably heading-in-the-right-direction place. A big plus would be helping to stitch up former weak spots as it is doing in Detroit... Olive and Locust etc. would really benefit big time from say 14th Street...
^ there's been some speculation that King Rex plans to move his e-tax battle to the state ballot initiative front.
^ I haven't heard anything since the announcement of the spec building under construction... they said they had some good talks with prospective tenants but I haven't heard anything since.
Moved over the Buell Building on Wash & 19th -- the one that had the 4 alarm fire in January -- to the Under Construction column. Sweet news! Also, not on the list but Stacy Hastie is hoping to redevelop 40 acres in Kosciusko -- much of which will need significant environmental remediation -- fo...
Don't know what is going in it, but one of the retail spots at the new UIC buidling has a leased sign. Also, a pizza and beer joint (Firecracker?) is going in over on the east end where the old bike shop recently vacated.
^ Why yes it could! When I saw geoff w. tweet 40 story prediction I was thinking Kingshighway and Lindell, Pine didn't register with me.
^ I'll take Amazon and other Seattle firms. Lots to go round!
So nextstl is saying that the work in the backside on the 13th St. garage area is for the Fitness Factory relocation from the McGowan Bros. building that is being vacated for the Lockerdome move. Biz Journal alluded to this a few months ago as well as McGowan Bros itself, although I suspect they won...
^ don't think it was an actual plan... when the owners began marketing it for sale they mocked up a mixed-use vision to try and create some buzz for potential buyers. iirc they thought about 300 luxury units with inside parking and some retail. Something similar occurred with the marketing of the KM...
^ a dwindling number, especially if the Jefferson-Arms deal goes through.
^ from the article,,, A site plan for the Mongram project shows a plaza between the former CPI building and the footprint of a new building on what is now the parking lot to the east. If this were a private plaza that closes off traffic but allows for bike/ped passing through I probably would be oka...
Holy, moly! More than Lucky's in the offing for Washington Avenue m The plan includes 168 apartments in the CPI building—erected as the Monogram Building in 1912—as part of a project that could eventually have about 500 market-rate and affordable apartments, sources say... Most of the apartments wou...
I could see closing the street to auto traffic but it seems like it'd be an awful hard justification for doing so for bike/ped. 17th Street area is loaded for future mixed-use on the blocks south of Washington. Future Downtown West will have not only retail in Printer's Lofts but also residents. ret...
^ I guess my immediate concern with Centene's project is if they lure another company out of downtown into leased space like they did Armstrong Teasdale with their first tower.... that was a huge blow for downtown. But I see where you're coming from. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see a number of ...
According to presby, this will have 168 apartments and a ground floor pre-school.

Also, the project is seeking 10 yr. tax abatement and 15 years if it develops the surface lot although I don't know if that is an active plan or not.
