I agree with the idea behind a standard 5-step plan for gentrification, but in this case the area is already gentrified and much of N 4th here is made up of empty lots. By "leading edge" do you mean a frontier base from which gentrification is to spill over? I've got to do another more comprehensive Milo-Grogan thread, because as I mentioned before I recently saw the first rainbow flag I had ever seen there (though I don't regularly ride on many streets there) and you know what that means.
This is the first I'm reading about this. These all sound like nice ideas but lets be honest, it's hard to pull off one of these ideas (shared office space, artist space, business incubator, etc) let alone 4 or 5. It would be awesome if it works, but does any have any idea about who is behind the project, their track record etc. Also, though I've driven by the area before I'm not super familiar with it, is it a good place for something like this? There just seem to be a lot of questions.
"Initial plans to locate the project within the former Wonder Bread factory in the Short North ultimately proved unfeasible, as the building could not be secured at a rate that would be fiscally defensible for a tax-exempt organization seeking public support," Brouillette wrote."
