  1. Well you know, when faced with building an apartment building on that curve, I’m sure they exhausted all creative options and that design was all that could be done. How else could you possibly integrate an apartment building into that setting?
  2. If I recall, the HPC threw a conniption over the early designs for the Hinman project. This is far more atrocious than anything that was ever proposed there and yet this is OK? How does the HPC maintain any kind of credibility in light of that incongruity?

  4. I believe that is an “attendant” who is there to take over in the event of a problem.
  5. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out...
  6. They’ve really been going to town on that development at 44th and Shaffer. Looks like condos or apartments are part of the plan. Toward the northern end of Shaffer they’ve put a lot of effort into fixing up the Tassel mansion and adding an event space. Looks remarkably better.
  7. Psh, biking is for the proletariat.
  8. Honestly, I don’t know if it is absolute contempt for fellow humanity or just utter ineptitude, but the combination of road closures this summer seems designed to maximize traffic congestion and driver frustration. In addition to making a mess of downtown, it’s fugly on the east side too. Construction on 196, so let’s close 96. Route people onto Leonard but close Leonard at Crahan so everyone is forced onto an already overloaded Beltline. And if they want to get east but can’t do it from Leonard to Crahan they’ll probably try to use Fulton or Cascade Road so tear up both of those roads at the same time too. It is such a ham handed approach to planning it doesn’t seem possible it was accidental.
  9. I thought it was a dumpster fire but realized the Degage project is the other direction.
  10. It will all end in tears
