  1. Maybe I'm off base here, but the Hawthorne/Independence sections has a bridge carrying Hawthorne over 74. They are in the process of replacing it for the streetcar right now. That pic shows no bridge/overpass at all.
  2. I thought the bridge at Hawthorne (crossing over Independence) was built in the 50s. Are we sure that location description is accurate? You're right about that Camry, that looks like a 90s model.
  3. Does anyone know what's going on at that empty lot at 7th and Louise (across Louise from the Fig Tree)? It looks like a few trees and some overgrowth were cleared last week.
  4. Not looking to relitigate the whole Swim Club episode, but a large segment of the Plaza Midwood neighborhood opposed that project. Of course, many did support it. In any event, as others noted it's hard to see why this project provoked this much Council opposition giving what else is going up in the area...
  5. A significant portion of the PM community did not support the pool (and the neighborhood association caused some conflict by announcing support for the project before most anyone knew about it). At the end of the day, this site simply cannot supply the parking for the uses it was requesting. It'll be interesting to see if Maddalon moves forward with the townhomes or not.
  6. Agreed on the smoke screen. While it's true that there is significant support for the pool in the neighborhood, it's also true that there's a lot of opposition to it as well. I just don't see how this site (even taking into account the parking lot next to Segen's) can even begin to support the traffic it will create. Even for "regular" events that the Van Landingham already hosts, it's frequently a mess.
  7. Agreed this is better. I still wonder how that area will handle the parking demands of those townhouses and (especially) the pool. There just isn't enough.
  8. Here you go: http://www.wbtv.com/story/28276766/new-development-in-noda-could-lead-to-end-of-popular-concert-venue?clienttype=generic&mobilecgbypass
  9. As do I, but that's very different than what I'm hearing about the proposed development. I have to respectfully disagree about the landscaping - it's very nice and the main reason why (along with the historic house) it has a strong wedding business. Agreed about the schools.
  10. While I certainly understand that the owner needs to have a financially viable property, this development truly is unfortunate for the Van Landingham Estate and neighborhood in general. Throwing up 21 townhomes and a large pool does not in any way fit the historic nature of the property -- which is one of a kind. My sense is that since the owner has strong and deep ties with the community, a lot of folks are giving a pass on this one. If it was somebody else, I'd guess that the neighborhood would be fighting it tooth and nail.
