  1. 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)...
  2. Untrue, the MTS Centre in Winnipeg holds 15,004 for hockey, and they just got a team...
  3. I still hate what this project has become...
  4. I too would take those buildings in Hartford in a second...
  5. I drive by there every day and there is little or no traffic. Like VoR said, I'm one of the people using it as a backdoor to downtown from Brainard Rd. The new magnet School there is nice, I believe it's the Sports Sciences one. Is there another over there too?
  6. ” Kissel said. “I’m not sure we are maximizing the full potential.” Yeah, and I'm not sure the world is round...
  7. I think MSG is above ground. If they can build the Eisenhower Tunnel a mile through the Continental Divide, I'd imagine they can make a street through a raised arena. I suppose the problem then is the cost, though it would definitely make entrances to whatever garage would inevitably be attached convenient...
  8. Can't they raise the arena a bit? How about making it above a street, like having a small portion of Church St or Main St go through a tunnel, the tunnel being the arena above the street...
  9. Who says the Onion isn't real? We're living that dream right now...
  10. I'm sure a ton of people would be more than happy to move into small apartments downtown so long as they are affordable and not killing you in the wallet...
  11. That whole area between Adriaen's Landing and Coltsville is really poorly planned. I drive through there every single day imagining what i could do with the CL&P parking lot , the Candy Cane Bdg parking lot, and other areas. I REALLY hate surface parkign with a passion, this new Mayor needs to get his ass in gear and change some tax codes or something...
  12. Didn't Florida vote down funding for mass transit between Tampa and Orlando or did I hear wrong?
  13. These buffoons will still find a way to screw this up. While actually getting a tenant is a positive, I'm not sure a movie theater with food and beer is going to work. It might work in an area where PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIVE, which isn't here. Every time I think of this development I get enraged. I'm not seeing the problem with building the whole thing at once. Two towers of residential with retail below. Give incentives to have some cornerstone retail that would be true destinations: an ESPNZone type thing, Dave and Busters, Medieval Times, and one other (Coyote Ugly? Toads North? a world class nightclub?). C'mon, figure this stuff out guys...
  14. You'll never hear the scumbag owners of vacant lots in Hartford saying that...
  15. Residential was the MOST important part of that Front St development, not the LEAST important. they had a strip mall builder make a strip mall, that's the no-brainer. they picked the wrong horse. Anyways, enough with hijacking this thread...
  16. Yeah, it's called residential, which was to be phase two.... well, if you're naive enough to believe that.
  17. That is Blue Back Square in Storrs, yet Hartford can't even get that at Front Street....
  18. Sure, let's put the residential in Phase 2, just like Constitution Plaza. Yeah, you know, the people that would live there that would go to all the shops that are supposed to exist, yes, those people...
  19. I also heard about some more movement ahead for the NB busline, why on Earth is anyone wasting resources on that still?
