Does that mean there won't be elevators or that elevators would have to be in the garage?

If I were to guess, and I am guessing, I'd guess that the elevators will be in the garage.

Makes more sense anyway.

Takes up less living space that way.

it's really coming along.  Important project.  Now, there will be two large marquee mixed use projects anchoring the neighborhood.

I don't think it's fair to call this "mixed use".  It's a straight-up apartment building.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a CP resident that supported it's construction, and still argue with the NIMBYs here about it, but it doesn't bring any non-residential growth to the area - and that's fine.  We're only now finally seeing all the Edgewater retail/restaurant space fill up with coherent, non-pizza related businesses.  With Ivanhoe/Virginia nightlife scene doing well, I don't see a need for more retail in the area quite yet - but I'm happy to have more residents walking distance from the existing stuff

I’ve been to Denver a few times the past year or so, and I’ve driven through a lot of urban neighborhoods.  That city has seen so much of this type of development- and you can tell it’s relatively new.  It’s like a whole new city.  So many of these mid-rise or low-rise housing and mixed use structures that have gone up; like this, the Maitland Projects, the Ravaudage project, etc., it’s amazing.  Orlando has had a bunch built already and new ones u/c, but Denver is such a large city that they’ve built so much more.  It’s impressive.

"The Packing District" - a mixed-use redevelopment centered around the Princeton St.  - OBT corridor is underway. A joint effort of Dr. Phillips, Inc. and the City, this could be amazing given the historic buildings involved.

Just heard about that on the 11 pm news. 

I like the fact that they're reusing and renovating old warehouse buildings rather than tearing them down and building new. 

And of course the big park - open green space, too.

I wonder if this means we can't call it Fairvilla any more. Given how hidebound Dr. Phillips tends to be, I would have loved to be around in some of the meetings between their execs and the hipsters from the City.

I wonder if Mayor Buddy can lean on the Meiner family to bring back Meiner's BBQ after all these years - it was such an awesome place. Last I had heard, the pitmaster was still in the area.

There's a pretty large undertaking by two of our areas biggest food entrepreneurs that will either be a part of this or adjacent.

Man I can't believe that tease didn't get any traction.   What's happening to this place.
