  1. Someone who works for Spectrum can correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought Spectrum already has a good system of having employees part in remote lots and bussing them in.
  2. How about the new building at 20 E Fulton? It’s been empty since it was built, so the space should be pretty much white boxed for any tenant that would move in there.
  3. The other part to having a full on pharmacy is they offer the convenience items such as hair brush, birthday card, or a bag of chips. They fill that niche when people are in a rush and don’t want to commit to a run to the grocery store.
  4. Back in the early 2000’s when it was talked about “what does a successful downtown need”, the 4 things that were held up as a sign of a success was a movie theater, grocery store, bookstore, and pharmacy. We now have the movie theater and grocery store, and a bookstore is now an antiquated business model. That just leaves a pharmacy for prescriptions and quick get items. I wonder if that is still being pursued?
  5. Anything on the level of Little Goat would be a big win for GR.
  6. My daughter helped train and open that location of Sweetwaters (she works for the original one in AA when she’s in school at UofM), and she said that the location is beating their initial projections. It’s a pretty big space, dog friendly, and they source all there baked goods from Wealthy Street Bakery.
  7. Will be nice to have a seafood option downtown that isn’t high end and expensive (Leo’s, Charley’s Crab).
  8. Looks like it was inspired by the police station (old city center).
  9. I can vouch for this place. I’ve eaten at the ones in Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Greenville. The biscuits alone are worth the trip.
  10. The bottom line is downtown is about to lose a lot of employees, and have a lot of square feet going back on the market. And they missed out once again on landing a new corporate office. I really don’t see how this could be a positive for the downtown area.
  11. Not sure the importance of the traffic barriers in front. In all it’s existence, I have never heard of someone jumping the curb and mowing down concertgoers. Is that a real threat?
  12. Being a lifelong resident (50 years), this sums this area up perfectly.
  13. Having all income restricted housing does nothing for a building. Isn’t that what the high rise projects that were reviled and tore down in larger cities, to be replaced by mixed income developments, were?
  14. I would think that it would be too narrow in spots for any commercial shipping.
