Interesting that they included the LEC with their thinking. I think it would be fantastic to move it and redevelop that property, all the way back to Park Ave as well. Anybody have any insight as to what it would take for the LEC to agree to move, and any thoughts on where else it could be?

Hopefully the presentation gets released publically soon, would love to see their vision.

I've long thought moving the LEC and connecting 385 more seamlessly to Academy then transitioning this area into a more walkable "Arena" district would be transformative for the area and traffic patterns through/around downtown. (Even perhaps building a minor league soccer / multi use outdoor stadium too!)

Just for @btoy, the gateway site project is clearly dead: 

Mayor Knox White said the city is currently collaborating with a party on the old auditorium site already and believes it will be a “huge catalyst” for starting this reinvestment project.

“Once the auditorium site gets the green light, you will start to see some big changes on the gateway to North Street and the surrounding area,” he said. “This project will give people a reason to go to their events early and stay late, much like we have done around the baseball stadium.”

Pieces of the project is anticipated to be completed within the next year or two, said White.
