  1. is reluctantly beginning the application for Graduate School at Auburn of all places... They have a Masters of Real Estate Development program online with limited on-campus residencies & field trips. Thank goodness for 13 years of experience in real estate which will hopefully let me waive some of the admission requirements. We'll see...

  2. Interesting statistic for the night... Since 1978, the Federal Debt has increased an average of 4.2% per year under Democratic Presidents. Anyone care to guess the average increase per year under Republican Presidents?? Almost 9 times that of their Democratic counterparts... 36.4% per year on average.

  4. And that led to the followup movie, The Social Network which certainly wasn't a let down. Very interesting movie behind the concept of Facebook. I had a great day at the movies. I would recommend both to anyone thinking about seeing them.

  5. To anyone who watches Glee, they will understand... I've never seen more of myself in the character of Kurt than tonight. It was almost as if I was watching myself on tv.

  6. I just installed Rainmaker. Check it out at http://rainmaker.cc/

  7. wishes he could remember the song... "Will anyone miss me when I'm gone?"

  8. I can see Jupiter. How cool!

  9. And now switching to... dare I say it... Root for Tennessee to beat Oregon.

  11. Just bought The Crisis of Islam (Unabridged) by Bernard Lewis on Audible.com. http://soc.li/4uhoOxE

    Although I don't think an official announcement has been made, after finding the leasing plan for Grand River (http://www.fwacgroup.com/pdfs/grand-river.pdf), it appears as though the new upscale outlet center has landed an Off 5th Saks outlet. I wondered if Saks or Neiman would take a leap into Grand River with one of their outlet stores and it appears as though at least one is. The Grand River website has been updated to include an October 28th opening and a recent list of some of the stores coming.

    That would be nice but I can't see it happening... With the rumored (although possibly cancelled now) Westin to go on the other end of the shopping center and Colonial's desire to move the center slightly more upscale, I don't see Target being a good fit. Plus a "regular" Target is in the neighborhood of 130k sq. ft. which would probably be pushing it for that site. I'm not sure what the existing building encompass however. Since leasing seems to have done so well with that office tower, I honestly would expect to see another office tower on site with ground level retail and restaurants. Another parking garage as well would compliment the site and allow for more of the existing parking to be used up. I'd like to see another "street-scape" retail created like what is in front of Brookwood. They could create another entrance promenade type setting as you come across the bridge at Applebee's. Have Applebee's frame one corner and another new restaurant frame the other with some shops and whatnot leading back to the existing office tower and a new one. Another option... Would be Brookwood taking some of the land for further development. They are slowly growing to the point they have no more land and I'm sure they are looking toward the future themselves. Personally, it makes more sense to put the rumored hotel on the end with Brookwood and build some type of connection to the two so that Brookwood could take advantage of having a hotel connected to the hospital.

    Kimco Developers is listing the Target location at over 191,000 sq. ft. which clearly puts it in the size range of a SuperTarget. Regular Target stores with the small food sections generally run 110,000 to 130,000 sq. ft. (the Target at Tannehill is 127,000). It's also clearly marked on the marketing information for The Grove that it is a SuperTarget.
