  1. New projects on the West Side

    From the vantage point of this former Chase site I can’t help but imagine what will go here. It is actually a decent sized site and while not as huge or grand as the super-block we know it’ll be something that adds even more cool density to this area.

    Approved!
  3. Fourth floor is up! One more to go.
  4. New projects on the West Side

    It's just not finished. I live next-door to a partner at Cherry Street Capital and thus keep all kinds of weird tabs on this project.
  5. New projects on the West Side

    I was told today that Sovengard was likely going to fill the space where Conscious Collective was. It makes perfect sense from their position, though I will admit that it is painful (as a retailer) to see more and more space become exclusively food and beverage focused. I think I've got to accept that Bridge Street is going to be a food/dining district almost exclusively with the exception of Meijer and a few other things here and there.
  6. Mangiamo/Paddock Place Residential Development

    Yeah I elected not to chime in on that one - it was a little energized beyond what I want to get involved with on FB.

    It looks like the ground floor user is listed as a restaraunt-bar called "North" and a lower level (basement?) bar called MASH.
  8. Wealthy Street Needed Renovations

    What's the total square footage?
  9. Village of Ada - Complete Makeover

    I have not seen any renderings but I think they have narrowed the sight down to the land on/around the Cominty Church. I know that they are in talks with the church.

    Gosh if I would have waited to post I could have included the article that just came out! http://www.grbj.com/articles/89156

    Ha! You can DEF retain your title as Gossip Queen of the Westside! I just will share Bridge Street title - or even settle for a lower ranking title. I can only manage Bridge Street and a few other tiny little things on the Westside right now for gossip and inside scoop haha.

    So now that I'm on Bridge Street everyday I will likely become a gossip queen for all things Bridge Street. That said, here are a couple things of note - 1. I saw crews inside the former Black Heron / soon to be Jolly Pumpkin project, so that's a great sign. 2. Conscious Collective is closing Saturday. The owner has been running things herself and has fallen ill so it will open up an interesting opportunity and I'll be excited to see who wants to do what with that space. 3. I've been told by multiple business owners that Shorts Brewery has been looking specifically at Bridge Street spots - many have said they've got something picked out. That all might just be a rumor but I've heard it from multiple people now.
  13. I had time to snap a couple from the corner. I will have more time soon enough and am on Bridge every day now so it'll be fun to really see how quickly this takes shape.
  14. RFP - 201 Market

    I mean in fairness - we haven't seen anything yet and none of this is saying that it is ALL low-income and ALL parkland with NO retail or great design. I'm sad that we don't have anything to see you BUT I'm also not worried; if I'm being frank I thought that this developer's portfolio was the most interesting in terms of mixed use projects, high-rises, etc. So...here's to hoping we will see SOMETHING sooner than later and not getting to worked up in the meantime.

    The church is adding on... snore.
