It's going bye-bye as is everything in the background......

EDIT: here's a better view of the endangered background:

Ugh. I literally just drove by that thinking "what a nice building if it could be fixed up". Very disappointing. It didn't register to me before that this was the site of that proposed development.

Why do these projects always seem to do the most possible damage? There's 3 or 4 large brick apartment buildings in the footprint that would be demolished if this was built.

Can this be blocked by the planning commission if it goes before them? What frustrates me is we continue to fumble a neighborhood that has great mixed use potential. If they built the Chester part of Midtown up with PROPER mixed use developments (apartments w/retail, hotels etc.) they could create a vibrant neighborhood. Once that is built they could shrink the urban highway that is Chester avenue by placing a streetcar (MAJOR pipe dream) on it that feeds the businesses, apartments and retail that goes there. The side streets of Chester avenue have good historical bones that just need polishing and BOOM you have a great all around neighborhood with character.

I don't mind health/tech companies building there but if the stretch mainly includes offices with one or two apartment projects and no ground level activity then the neighborhood is useless after 5pm. I would have figured they could use Midtown as a spillover from University Circle slowly running out of room and build housing for the doctors, students and tech workers. Midtown can be a place where Health/Tech companies live but buildings with all around use and late night (safe) activity need to outnumber the 9-5 office buildings that are slowly popping up.

Putting this here since there is no thread for Woodland Hills neighborhood. This is a pretty big project across the street from St Luke's Manor along MLK Drive between E.111th and E115th. 76 single family homes, about half market rate and half subsidized. The site plan is good. The houses themselves won't be anything to look at, if they look anything like the ones built next door, but they will probably be affordable.

I had the pleasure of touring St. Luke's a few weeks ago - here's a view of the site from the rooftop, with a bonus skyline view.

Great news for the St. Luke's development noted above, as well as for Hough and the Euclid/Green neighborhoods....
