  1. Passenger traffic at Ford Int'l hits 3.8 mil as growth rate slows to 6%.
  2. https://publish.twitter.com/?query=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FFlyGRFord%2Fstatus%2F1219657709445881856&widget=Tweet
  3. Didn''t realize the new Allegiant routes for GR were part of 44 in total including 7 out of Midway. https://www.airfarewatchdog.com/blog/50096619/44-new-routes-and-3-new-cities-on-allegiant-from-33-one-way-or-63-roundtrip/?source=66080
  4. North End Lofts property. Before: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9894695,-85.6638421,3a,75y,173.42h,83.51t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s5bpMG2HeXKUQBsWCaMbgqw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 After: https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9893865,-85.6641212,3a,75y,128.93h,79.35t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sUW6xnD8F97fQNIIddACOxA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  5. No change. Is this project dead? (Mad Grub)
  6. Allegiant has done not only a good job anticipating demand but creating it .. both ways. It's not enough to have outbound demand, there needs to be sufficient inbound as well. I'm wondering if SW Air might take a bit of a hit. I don't know the LA or Austin market very well but you can bet many would be eager to skip Midway altogether.
  7. > Kitzengen (its not really open still is it?) Alive and well last time I was there about 4 months ago. Their German food is excellent.
  8. I'm struck by the contrast in picture 2 of what's to become one of the nicest looking buildings next to the bunker known as GRPD.
  9. 3 thoughts: Don't know what you call them but it would be nice to see vertical banners in that stretch not unlike what Kendall has to soften the 'blockiness.' Could CDW's fast track be anyway related to the proposed convention hotel? Regarding the federal building, were any major architectural changes made post Oklahoma City bombing to be in compliance with new federal codes ?
  10. Starting to morph into a bigger city feel. Pleased Google has been keeping up with street viewing downtown. No doubt the rapid changes have forced it to keep up.
  11. This is a significant piece of news, that whole area is exploding. Sightly disappointed more '601 Bonds' couldn't be developed on this parcel to extend the urban mid-rise canyon feel and densify the number of residents for a more active night life region (vs vacate after 5 pm). $100 mil isn't anything to sniff at though.
  12. Any street where you can get hit up by a homeless person, get a tattoo, drink a craft beer, or savor some barbecue .. all in the same block .. gets my vote.
  13. Record September, record quarter. https://www.grbj.com/articles/94501-ford-airport-reports-best-ever-september?utm_content=103332502&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&hss_channel=tw-30311580
  14. It's time to close the NB 131 Wealthy St exit. Picture yourself heading on NB at a healthy clip in the left lane of 131 and as you top the slight hill you see cars stopped immediately in front of you lined all the way down the ramp bleeding into the left lane, forcing a split second decision to hit the brakes hard or hope you've got room to veer into the middle lane, the last car in line praying they're not rear-ended. Now imagine if it's a loaded truck barreling in that left lane who doesn't have the advantage of a short braking distance. This is exactly the scenario I've seen played out half a dozen times lately. It makes you wonder just how many exits/entrances are going to have to close before any semblance of highway improvements happen. Managing traffic signals is hitting limitation.
