  1. I walked through there a couple weeks ago, and there was brink stored inside. It could look pretty good. I'm not sure it came through in the pictures, but at 5101 Kentucky, they even painted door handles on the KY side.
  2. The people at 5101 Kentucky are really committed to their rendering! Those door s and windows are painted
  3. Totally makes sense- I don't have to walk by it at all. Also, I love xkcd.
  4. The finished product looks better than it did mid-renovation- a lot less prison. While the exterior is not beautiful, I'm sure the ground-level experience will be much more important for the patients and parents.
  5. I wish I saw your update on this Friday; I went over there Saturday thinking, "Surely that bridge is open." It's still not; but it was nice to get into the Cornelia Fort trails a bit.
  6. I don't think you do anything until Elliot Electric is out of there. Workers are flying down Georgia before 6 am, and then the trucks roll out before 7 am. They are big, old, dirty diesel engines, and they all line up right on that road idling, waiting to roll out. I'll be happy when they have found a new place.
  7. Sorry to quote a whole post, but I live within the frame, and I was trying to figure out what the "Catalyst Design Group" rectangle was. I didn't see anything on the development map- did I miss something? A couple weeks ago, there were white construction flags throughout the block and a half of open space, but I've not seen anything since.
  8. Or you let people into the golf course and high school next to the stadium to tailgate, which is what happens 8 weekends a year in Ann Arbor.
  9. To be fair, West End turning left onto Murphy Rd is awful, especially coming from 440. This will not make things better in the morning when people are coming to the development, but I can't see it change things as much on the way home in the evenings. Having a hotel there may actually spread those 4000 car trips throughout the day, which would likely help with rush hours. I imagine Bowling Ave will get more traffic as people attempt to avoid Murphy/West End.
  10. Tangentially related: I will miss the West End podium of Carmichael Towers- it definitely grew on me over the years. Now, the interior and the 4 towers, I'm happy to see them go, but the students are going to miss out on some great views from those upper floors.
  11. I think city council enjoys that the state capitol will now have an address of 600 Dr. MLK Jr Blvd. I know I do.
  12. One of the key features the brokers are pushing is the easy access under I-40 to Charlotte via a sidewalk. The sidewalk does exist- but it is only clear from the north end. The south end dumps out into an overgrown mess of a footpath behind the old Lions building the state is selling. I wish the Novatech people had continued the sidewalk along their property and the railroad track- it would improve connectivity in that area (right by my house) a lot!
  13. I still don't understand why the 99-year lease on the 10 acres is necessary for this to happen. I'm more ok with the stadium financing, but I'm a little confused about the $13 million/year debt obligation with the city paying $4 mil and the team $9 mil.- I'd rather it be structured so that the team guarantees $9 million, with them making the additional $4 mil if revenue/tax collections/parking surpasses the $9 million.
  14. Let the Titans walk when they want a new stadium, frees up space and money.
  15. Travis Electrical is on the south side of that block, separated from this structure by the ally. This was a church, Esperanza de la Vida. The demolition is not ongoing; the site has been this way for a couple months now.
