Those renderings look great!!

Anyone know when they will do something more with the area to the north and east of McNellie's and Albert G's, that is currently gravel parking?   It looks like that whole block from Elgin to Greenwood south of the railroad tracks is owned by the same group, not sure if both McNellie's and Albert G's are leasing the space or how that works.  Would like to see some more restaurants in that area and with this new residential development it seems like a no-brainer.

Developer? You must be kidding.

It's bad news when Sager is involved in a Project building. Damn thief needs to finish the First Street Lofts and pay the city back. He should be prosecuted at this point. I wonder how much in "management fees" he's taken out of that building.

He's bought 2-3 buildings in the Pearl District recently too.

If he has the equity to buy these properties why is the City not suing him over the Blue Dome property? The City really needs to stand up and do something about this - he is holding up funds that could be used for other downtown housing projects. He's 100% taking advantage of tax payers and he's calling the City's bluff, it's really sad.

He's not going to do anything with this building...he is just going to sit on it until the price doubles.

He's still burning a lot of cash to buy these properties. Cash that should be going to repay the money he's stole from taxpayers. Again, I do not get why the city has not done something about this. Especially when he's so flagrantly throwing money at "other projects"

Also, the Enterprise building did sell recently - Rivercity Development bought it. So Artist, I think you said you saw people cleaning out the property - and it might be under construction soon. Supposedly it will be turned into lofts along with 400 S. Boston which is slated to become 48 units (which is owned by Rivercity too).

I'll update the front page shortly with the Davenport Lofts project too.

 So Sager, who as I gather, does not seem to like zoning and fights against it downtown because he owns property there, now owns property and has a say in the Pearl District zoning?  May not bode well.

I really want to talk to them before they get too far along with any plans on that ground floor space in the Enterprise Building.

Give the guys at Rivercity Development a call. Give me a PM if you can't find any contacts for them and I'm sure I could dig them up for you.

I thought the Bacon and Son building was torn down? Some building in that area was within the last year or so.

Torn down, owned by Sager. Same difference.

So...about that gravel parking lot east of McNellies/Albert G's and the building towards the east end of that same block.

Anyone have any ideas on if/how that may get developed?

Sorry to breakup the Sager hatefest

Surely somebody has had some back door discussions about that lot. That space is quickly becoming prime.
