I understand how these plans might make some folks uncomfortable.  And I, too, find celebrating potential economic benefit to the area abhorrent. On the other hand, I personally find this design

I'm aware.  My wife's ex b/f is the founder.  I'm reminded of that tidbit every so often.

Although not a greenwise branded store, it’s a small convienent based concept with more health conscious/organic options and grab and go items than you would find at a standard Publix. Not to mention

The Foxtail in SoDo opened today

It was open yesterday. I got one salmon, cream cheese bagel and a small latte for $20... it was ok.

Went to Earth Fare on Sunday morning around 10:00 and there was all of 5 people in the store. there were several shelves bare or with overflow stock from other areas. the quick grab section was filled with cases of bottled water. It was like they picked up right where the left off before shutting down. 

SODO north Foxtail had some alarming operations issues. 8 people in the place and it took 10 min to get a small coffee and a bagel with cream cheese. Also the parking lot was full, but the shop was almost empty.  bagel was fine. more in line with a montreal style as opposed to a ny style. SODO needs a good NY style bagel place so the wait continues. 

Could all be because it was early on a Sunday, but was somewhat alarming.

O-Town Tan is the latest Covid Casualty.  They closed up shop earlier this week and made a deal with South Beach to move memberships/assets to them.  Calling it a merger, but it's pretty blatantly a sell.  TBD if South Beach will be assuming the lease in the Publix plaza or if it is one amenity that SoDo will no longer have (Closest South Beach locations are Lee Vista and Colonial Plaza).

I never could figure out why people who live in states like Florida and (southern) California go to tanning salons.

Back when I used to worry about being tan, I would use a tanning salon called "Go Outside In The Sun With Shorts And No Shirt On"

Worked pretty good and best of all their services were totally free.  :thumbsup:

I typically only use it like a month or so a year (typically ~March) to just get a nice base tan quickly in like a week or two.  Sure you can go outside, but when you work 9-5, you miss all the good sun, and it takes multiple hours and multiple days to get the same base tan I can get in ~10 mins a day for 6-8 days.

Two words..... spray tan.

Doesn't stop you from burning unfortunately.

I think the logic is that if you get a sprayed on tan, you don't need to go out in the sun to begin with.

Stay in the a/c and look like you've been to the beach.

The development at 3509 S. Orange have been put on hold for a month. The developer has asked for a double density bonus to go from 30 units per acre to 60. "The submitted floorplans would create six retail shops on the ground floor with covered parking, with the end-caps being the largest at nearly 1,500 square feet. The apartments are all one-bedroom or smaller. The floorplan calls for 16 one-bedroom units with about 625 square feet, six efficiencies at 463 square feet and 51 studios, which are all about 540 square feet.", per GS.

"TDRC told the applicant to come back with a new site survey after it was pointed out that the submitted survey contained incorrect information regarding Highway Place."...??? (ouch)

Is this the one in front of the other apartments ?

It looks like it is next to it. They should just JV and combine the sites.

It looks like it’s in front of and next to Holly Garden/Mark at SoDo/whatever SoDo name it is now.   Can’t wait for this to happen.  They are going to have to start thinking about adding a signal between Pineloch and Drennan.

Please no more traffic signals. I always hit the Pineloch and Drennan lights going into work, even with little traffic. I don’t need another light to yell at!

I think the additional light would not be to serve a road but to provide pedestrian crossings, so it could just be a pedestrian activated light, which shouldn't change the commute times significantly.

Good. Too many stupid people totally ignored the signals anyway.

What’s humorous is the decidedly low-tech 4-way stops on Central are infinitely more successful for pedestrians in Eola/TP than the silly flashing lights we got on Summerlin.

@WAJASNo more ped signals.  Now we get these monstrosities.

I hate these with a passion. They look like railroad crossings but operate very differently. Quite frankly it’s dangerous that double flashing red lights can mean two very different things.
