"sick of dealing with entertainment venues and restaurants"LOL well given the space and the direction this neighborhood has taken, good luck with that...
Damn. I was really looking forward to a restaurant going in there. Main St. (and OTR in general) needs more everyday dining restaurants. While all the places on Vine are great, they're too expensive to just go in a grab something on a whim. (at least for me).
Moving the momemtum over to Main should be a key focus for 3CDC going forward because the rest of the neighborhood will suffer. It's a shame too becuase the best nightlife options are on Main and this area gets plenty of suburbanite traffic as well.
I can't believe that they have literally used a bullet path through this poor girl's neck as an elaborate allusion to the streetcar's nearby route. That is pretty artfully disgusting.
Yea the enquirer and most of local medea tends to suck... But I will say one thing: 9 times out of 10 when I tell someone I live in OTR they say something like, "Wow that's awesome. There is so much great stuff down there now. Do you love it?" And then that 1 out of 10 person thinks I am super badass and brave for living there so there is a silver lining. People know what's up, and those who don't are increasingly irrelevant. In many ways the perception is outpacing the reality. We need exponentially more rental properties and still more condos.
That being said, lack of available rental property is a problem. If I had a nickel for every person I know that has told me they'd love to move OTR/DT but can't find availability. Really, new inventory cannot come online quick enough.
Are the numbers there for a individual (outside of 3cdc) to purchase a place south of Liberty, say by Washington park or Pendleton, invest to make it modern and liveable and also make a profit?
