Hamlet (4/14)



  1. It's not gambling related. The tribes wouldn't want to pull traffic from their existing properties in the area.
  2. It's a complicated deal. 'On hold' doesn't mean 'fell apart'.
  3. My understanding is AHC will operate the hotel, not own it and LiveNation will continue to operate 20 Monroe.
  4. As of TODAY, all the windows are now in on this project. I can't imagine the pro forma blood bath going on with this deal. Hope everyone survives.
  5. Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but it looks like Meritage’s new breakfast/brunch concept is coming into the old Esquire hair salon on Bridge St. I suspect they will do very well there. https://morningbellebrunch.com/locations/another-location/
  6. Was just about to comment that the pace here has picked up significantly in the past couple weeks. Good sign.
  7. I admit to having the same reaction when I saw those 4th floor panels, @joeDowntown
  8. I don't have any specifics, but if you consider that this new development would be done by the owner(s) of the parking ramp, options may become more clear.
  9. Insert blind squirrel/nut joke here.
  10. This would not be good for my health.
  11. Such a great looking addition to the city. I'm glad they took the time to do this right. It would have been easy to put an underwhelming 4 story triangle of condos in there.....
  12. Drywall has been hung....even in units that have no windows installled. It really is a train wreck.
  13. Anyone questioning whether there are problems with this project should realize that this photo is from July 1. It is now September 4. You could take an identical photo today. Yes, a small number of people poke around each day. No, it is not closed to the weather. I can't imagine any serious developer is going to take this disaster over. They'd need to gut the interior.
  14. I suspect certain things are already paid for, and so they are progressing. Slowly. I'm no expert, but it seems unlikely to be good building practice to install drywall in a project that has not yet been sealed from the elements. Multiple window openings are still unfinished and not even covered to protect the interior from rain. I'm sure the storms we've had over the past couple of weeks have brought water into the units without windows. Many of those units have drywall hung. My understanding was that a small crew remained with the task of 'securing' the project. They've also been hanging cheap plastic in window and door openings, presumably to try to protect the interior from the elements. Trust me, this project is a disaster.
