Sidecar, the rooftop bar on Cherry Street, is supposed to open later this month.  Are the apartments complete and leasing?  Seems like that project has taken forever to build.  HOPEFULLY the old Subway next door is next in line to be renovated.

Covering that beige fluid air barrier with the silver and yellow metal panels will make a huge difference.  This immediately makes a big positive impact on this block of Main.

Current status. It looks like they've been busy on the embankment areas on the Gathering Place side. Some of those ghost pathways will be removed soon, hopefully.

Looks like the tower crane was being set on Friday. Should be exciting to see that go up this week.

Starting to look really good with the cladding being completed. The graffiti wall is finally gone and that instantly makes the area look a lot better.

A lot of "corporate" aircraft are registered to corporations based in Delaware.  There is a tax thing there somewhere.


Delaware, where businesses go so they don't have to pay corporate income tax.

Quote
Delaware as a domestic tax haven. At present, the state of Delaware is home to approximately 1,000,000 businesses and more than 67.8 % of Fortune 500 companies. Additionally, in 2019, 89.9% of U.S.-based businesses with initial public offerings chose Delaware to be their corporate home.

NOTHING about 1209 North Orange Street hints at the secrets inside. It’s a humdrum office building, a low-slung affair with a faded awning and a view of a parking garage. Hardly worth a second glance. If a first one.

But behind its doors is one of the most remarkable corporate collections in the world: 1209 North Orange, you see, is the legal address of no fewer than 285,000 separate businesses.

Its occupants, on paper, include giants like American Airlines, Apple, Bank of America, Berkshire Hathaway, Cargill, Coca-Cola, Ford, General Electric, Google, JPMorgan Chase, and Wal-Mart. These companies do business across the nation and around the world. Here at 1209 North Orange, they simply have a dropbox.

What attracts these marquee names to 1209 North Orange and to other Delaware addresses also attracts less-upstanding corporate citizens. For instance, 1209 North Orange was, until recently, a business address of Timothy S. Durham, known as “the Midwest Madoff.” On June 20, Mr. Durham was found guilty of bilking 5,000 mostly middle-class and elderly investors out of $207 million. It was also an address of Stanko Subotic, a Serbian businessman and convicted smuggler — just one of many Eastern Europeans drawn to the state.

Something else I 've noticed is that a lot of the medivac helicopters in the southwest are all registered in Greenwood Colorado.

The FAA lists the registered owner as: BANK OF UTAH TRUSTEE



Quote
Bank of Utah holds thousands of aircraft in trust as owner trustee and has hundreds of active security trustee accounts. Globally, the FAA is a preferred aircraft registry for many reasons, but primarily because the FAA maintenance standards allow for ease in appraising the aircraft for future resale.

It seems to me that “clubs” are not as popular as they used to be and that bars and breweries have taken a large portion of the nightlife market share.  There are plenty of those options downtown though I miss Prairie, any idea what will move into their space on Main?  That being said it was nice having a cluster of clubs around 1st & Detroit and hope to see the return of something like the IDL Ballroom.
