Re: East Quarter: ~24 Building Redevelopment

What is unfortunate is the smaller building at the corner there labeled 2200 Main in this screenshot will be torn down for parking. I am not sad for the historical quality of the building but because the corner will become another lot. Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 1.05.15 PM.png That's my biggest comp...

Re: West End 1.0

I wish the surface lot next to it would turn into a garage. They could make some money off of the parking there. That's redundant. There's already one two blocks up; West end parking garage. There's tons of parking under woodall as well. I think a new office or residential tower would be great. It ...
