I hope we get a residential tower with dark brick (almost black).

That could be very attractive, just glad they are rethinking what is currently there and will make an improvement. Too bad about the property across the street.

With the land the Walgreens is on being attached to this property. I'd love to see that lot re-developed as well. If we had at least one side of McKinney more urban through that block. It would really help connect West Village to the rest of Uptown. Right now it just feels separated.

You bring up a good point about West Village being a little isolated. That's probably partly why I didn't venture into West Village much when I lived in State Thomas. It just felt like a different neighborhood because of Lemon, Minyard's and Walgreens!

I find that too. It's not very easy to walk to the West Village from State Thomas and so if get in my car to go somewhere, frequently it's somewhere other than WV.

A decent sidewalk system would help, especially along McKinney but that only seems to come along one property at a time.

A lot of that landscaping along McKinney could be torn out to put in better sidewalks if the city worked with the property owners. The section by the Trophy Room is the worst section.
