  1. I'm going back home to Maryland in a couple of days so I am going to try and take and post a few pics of Tally and its projects before I leave. If anyone is going to be around during the summer that would be really cool if you could take some pics every now and then cause these developments are reall exciting. I have a feeling that a lot is going to be changed in the next 3-4 months.

  2. I'm gonna take John Marks' word over Wetherell's here. Wetherell just has to face the fact that Tallahassee is no longer this quiet town in North Florida that also happens to be the capital. Who knows, this may be the start of something truly great for both Tallahassee and FSU. Have they posted any renderings for the project?

  3. I agree that it is smart that they are building in an area that already has a lot of people walking, but the estimated congestion is outrageous for this part of campus. A transportation planner stated that the estimated number of cars that will pass through this block in a day is equal to the number of cars throughout the entire university. Keep in mind this is a small road with sorority houses and most of the campus' most treasured buildings. In the long run it is best to expand the city by connecting downtown and campus, but I think that it's being rushed. They are completely changing a beautiful part of campus that FSU originally had plans to expand on. But of course FSU will have to make some sacrifices for the greater good of Tallahassee. These condos better be at least nice to look at.

  4. I was just channel surfing and I passed by a local Tallahassee station and sure enough it was the city commission meeting regarding the development of the condos adjacent to FSU's campus. This is such a tough debate because it's great for the city of Tally, but it is going to be such a shock for life at FSU. As a student of the university, I would hate to see a 10-story condo in this particular part of campus. The buildings and sorority houses in the surroundings are all low and relevant to historic architecture. The atmosphere is currently great because it combines the traditional brick architecture with the many surrounding trees and it's mostly laid back. If a giant condo (giant for the situation) is built here, traffic and population will significantly increase and an essential part of the campus will be forever lost. It's hard to let go of this, but it looks like urban sprawl is the fate of the city. What are your opinions?
