  1. My company has been working with Holder on this project from the beginning, and while it may have had some retail at one point, the final version has no retail. It has a leasing office and a business center on the ground floor, but no retail.
  2. Assembly Station will have no retail, only apartments.
  3. I am so happy it won't be wrapped in glass! I think it would have looked very out of place that close to all the old churches nearby.

    Innovista

    I reread a lot of different threads yesterday, and I can't remember in which thread or who mentioned this, but a while ago, somebody mentioned the book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Coincidentally, I'm half way through this book right now, and it's making me think about the Innovista. I was wondering what other people who have read the book think about the Innovista. A couple things concern me, for example, having an entire neighborhood of a city built at one time (basically, I know it's going to spread out over many years) and being the same age, and also having these grassy
