  1. Concept: Downtown Casino

    The problem is that Massachusetts is already planning casinos, and anyone from Boston would go there first. Montreal has had their own casino for over a decade (maybe two), so I can't imagine they'd come here when they have their own...
  2. Downtown Hartford Residential Projects

    That would be a great boost for that area, i wish they would get more damned housing in that area (Maybe AI Engineers should look into that aspect)...
  3. XL Center Renovation/Replacement Plans

    Untrue, the MTS Centre in Winnipeg holds 15,004 for hockey, and they just got a team...
  4. Concept: Downtown Casino

    Why not two casino's downtown, one for each tribe...
  5. Downtown Hartford Residential Projects

    Just add a damned casino....
  6. PROPOSED: Great Pond Village

    Companies reap what they sow. They move to suburban business parks, they people angry because there is nothing to do but walk around suburban business parks...
  7. HFD/Conn Economic development

    That doesn't add up to +200...
  8. PROPOSED: Great Pond Village

    Why not just build some retail and leave the residential for phase 2... oh, wait, this isn't in Hartford...
  9. PROPOSED: iQuilt Pedestrian Enhancements

    Ha, they'll blow through that just painting the swing sets in Bushnell Park...
  10. 50 Elm Renovation

    If some of the owners of these vacant lots would cough up the properties so someone could build on them... ah forget it.
  11. 50 Elm Renovation

    They had me at "residential component".
  12. PROPOSED: iQuilt Pedestrian Enhancements

    I totally agree with beerbeer's post. I'm totally for this, and totally for most anything in the city.... if it's done right. Most of the time, the city screws it up. I'd almost rather have nothing done than a bunch of half-assed nonsense. Good post, beerbeer.
  13. PROPOSED: iQuilt Pedestrian Enhancements

    Lol, green surface parking is still surface parking, which I find to be the single biggest waste of space in the universe. However, I concede the point, I misunderstood it's use, and since it's happening anyways, it might as well happen this way.

    I agree with everything 1000% except..... the State parking lot nonsense. That area along Capitol Ave was supposed to be brownstones... or row houses... or... something. Adding more park there is kinda silly. I love the idea, really I do, but we need more RESIDENTIAL downtown! Yes, I know, we are getting some, but Capitol Ave is a perfect place to create a nice neighborhood. Go look at Paris, full of 6 story apartment buildings with nice iron-wrought balconies, etc. Now, imagine that along Capitol Ave and the little side streets. That's what's needed, not a farmer's market...
  15. Bring Back The Whale!!!

    This refurbish the Civic Center stuff has to stop. Really, we need a new building...
