  1. I definitely agree with you, I was in the Cottages yesterday and I barely recognize that area from my childhood. However, I don't have a problem with a lack of apartments north of campus as it limits gentrification in OSBR. With downtown and the Water Campus being nearby, as well as the light rail, I don't see why OSBR would need LSU students in the area. At least not to that level. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. So that's why my friend had to vacate the house you see on the corner. Renderings look fantastic, it will fit in perfectly on that block.
  3. Low income housing can work, Columbia Parc in New Orleans balances it very well from what I hear.
  4. I'll have to make a point to look at it, I haven't passed by ina while.
  5. I like the modern look, think it will age well?
  6. I'd agree. Although it's always looked like a "nondescript cookie cut high rise from a developing nation."
  7. Dollar General and Dollar Tree are going to end up affecting the income of Walmarts. They are popping up everywhere now.
  8. From what I heard, there was a touchdown in Walker I think west of 447.
  9. In my proposal deal, the train would take priority over auto traffic. When tracks are laid in travel lanes, the lights for that street would remain green as the car passes. The only time it would stop would be to pick up or drop off passengers. The metro in Houston is the same, at least in some intersections. You're right about Park Blvd though. Parking could be sacrificed. Would it be that much of a concern to have two trains crossing paths? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. That would destroy Park Blvd! No way! You inspired me to make a map for my ideal routes with stops. The Mid-City connector would make a loop with the LSU line. The Medical Center line would force riders to transfer depending on if they are going to LSU or Mid-City/Downtown. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1O4q97R_4vkyUOHAOMxkIlacGb1U&usp=sharing
  11. I always said N 22nd/Plank to Harding. Seems like it would easier than 72nd. It would dead end at Scenic Hwy. Along with a viable bus network I think it would be a popular line. Brand new lighting, sidewalks, and bike lanes would go a long ways into bringing up the property values.
  12. Group C is what I think are afrocentric-awoke young black kids desiring more funding for SU, group D is what I think of when I see NIMBYs. Group B and D overlap more to me. Group B being the ones excited for a new highway, Walmart or DQ, but not a bunch of fancy boutiques, group D opposing any development except infrastructure and keeping their local politicians conservative. I do think Group C and D overlap but it depends on who you associate group C with and I associate it with the younger politically active kind.
  13. Nice breakdown but I'd say Group C and Group A overlap on issues and are growing overall.
  14. Holden and Broome are democrats but seem to have pretty different beliefs.
  15. And we still can't get a hotel at Perkins Rowe...
