The designs for the new building look sweet. Fully wrapped in brick, none of that overdone "modulation", art space, and a cafe at the corner? Where do I sign up? Only problem is that it adds almost 100 parking spots that will spill right on to 11th. Next to a light rail station. Wtf.

Can we move this party to our residential streets?? One way to keep weird spots is to allow retail to exist in more places throughout the neighborhood than just along the arterials. Why do we put this unnecessary burden on shops that they can only exist along arterials? As more and more of our arterial street buildings are owned by equity funds, you can guarantee there will be fewer and fewer weird retail spots.

@3, @8, Makes me wonder if the added rent from the huge parking lot (takes up as much land as the building itself!) that is rarely full is why it didn't make financial sense for Half-Price to stick around...

People are our most valuable resource. Taller buildings = more people = better community.

Even if he is unbeatable, a little progressive pressure wouldn't hurt.
