SWC 14th & Vine: demo of 1311, 1333 & 1335 Vine--noncontributing buildings with noncontributing front additions, and replacement with a new building
Tender Mercies to rehab Harkavy Hall
Tender Mercies already has a presence in the Gateway Quarter...Plus I think Tender Mercies is a pretty reputable and respectable organization and should be able to coexist with the recent development in that part of OTR. They are certainly much more responsible than the Drop In Center.
permanent housing for 30 formerly homeless, severely mentally ill people
While a SRO for the mentally ill is not my ideal neighbor, there are a lot worse neighbors you could have--a group home for convicted felons, for example.
I'm sorry but that would not be a good selling point to share to with my wife and son.
30 formerly homeless, severely mentally ill people
I remember Nick Spencer(where did he go?) complained quite bit
To me living in the city is largely about living near many many people who are different than me.
I don't know. I think we are missing the point here. No matter how educated we are about Tender Mercies, or how little impact it actually makes, it doesn't make a difference. The problem is PERCEPTION.
The Good-HVAC means the window air-conditioners will be gone and the restoration of the facade will be a vast improvement. The Bad-The building will be gutted and interior historical features will be lost or covered over.
One of which I heard was Lucy Blue moving into the Harry's space
Has anyone on this board heard about the Freestore plan to demolish two OTR buildings for semi-trailer parking? http://www.citykin.com/2007/08/duck-regatta-to-fund-otr-demolition.htmlAm I right to remember that this is part of the national historic district, but that it is not in the local historic district?
It's in the local district. The demo permit was not approved by the Historic Conservation Board.
