In order of Importance to me.

1. YMCA project begins with that pretty rendering we have all seen at 43 stories. ~300 CONDOS

2. Front street construction progresses nicely with strong early sales prompting announcement of a beefed up phase II(including residential towers) near the end of 2008

3. City changes Taxation structure to encourage development on flat parking lots downtown.

4. WFSB and Clarion Hotel location, developer announce mixed use condo/hotel project.

5. Colt Factory works out financing and makes progress.

6. City finds buyer/developer for "Downtown North" land, leading to the demolition of Butt Ugly and the construction of a large scale mixed use district North of downtown.

7. Konover puts a firm proposal in for Capitol Ave parking lots. including parking garages and townhomes creating a upscale neighborhood downtown.

8. Capewell regains solvency(or a different developer) and pushes forward allowing both Capewell hotels push forward.
