Re: Arts District: The Spire Mixed Use Project

Drove by today and they tore down the liquor store along Ross. I know we shouldn't be too optimistic about this project.

Driving by, I've seen them working on this road. Hopefully it's continuous work and not on and off again. This road has taken years to build.

Re: Arts District: The Spire Mixed Use Project

Does anyone know an update on this property? The liquor store closed down last weekend. They said they're tearing down the building.

Maybe Spire is finally making a move on its property.

Re: Downtown: Cesar Chavez & Pearl re-do's

This project is never consistent. They have people working on it one day and the next few days nobody is on site. I don't understand that. No wonder this project is taking forever! Are they short on labor or something? Anyone have any info as to why the crew is seldom there?
