    Great idea let's make projects even more dependent on adjacent parking. So what building(s) should be knocked for the garage so you aren't momentarily inconvenienced. Seriously there's no major city that doesn't face the same problems

    Yeah the blizzard of 2000 was a major black eye for the city. Just wish my street would be plowed the first day, they alway seem to take a few days with mine.

    Next to the BC, MidMed is my favorite project in the city. To see the building go from a couple of walls, a few months ago, to today is just amazing.
