Looks like another pitch for some downtown taxpayer funded pork is coming. We need more government subsidized luxury housing downtown to revitalize downtown. I wonder if these projects will be part of the package to build the ballpark downtown that the taxpayers will soon be asked to fund.

Double A, what would count as good news?

Business Comes:  the jobs all suck/corporate welfare

Development: I'm sure its publicaly subsidized

Events in Town: but they weren't where we wanted them/I hate the arena/they were publicly subsodized

Anything Political:  I hate Wal-Mart, the economy sucks, the government is stupid

There, I think I commented on 90% of the threads for the next 2 weeks for you. You posted negatively knowing NOTHING about the project except someone wants to build a nice looking building downtown.  What did this contribute?  Nothing, except an increase in the number of people who are starting to view you as nothing but a negative voice that no longer bothers to care what he is negative about or if it is founded.  Nay, Nay I say!

Don't know about a ballpark, but that came out of left field. They are building a small expansion to a building on property they already own.

Remind me to picket if I find out you're putting a deck in your backyard.

I got it from the pages of the Whirled, so being out of left field is an accurate description. Do you read the sports section of the Whirled. They had a big article that was really a thinly veiled politcal editorial saying there would be a package for a downtown ballpark before the city council in the upcoming months and to urge their Councilors to support it. I would welcome your protest because, unlike most on this board, I believe free exchange of thought, freedom of expression, and the clash of ideas is the sound of freedom. It is music to my ears.

This sounds like private funds by private developers, I wouldn't read anything more into it.

Personally, it is getting old being asked for more projects when we don't take care of what our parents paid for 30 years ago.

No more publicly funded packages to replace perfectly functional existing facilities until they fix our delapitated roads.  

They can build all the new stuff they want in the way of ballparks, arenas, rivers, etc, but if the ruts are too deep in the roads to get there, I'm staying home!

The credit card is maxed out and they still want to keep spending. That is responsible government. Instant gratification over fiscal responsibility.

From the rendering, it appears the new structure would be north of the existing structure, not east

Man, we are directional impaired lately.  I think we need to remember that the Brady district is part of downtown, which is not oriented on compass.  It is angled so it gets a bit confusing.

As you look at this building from the frontage street, there is a road to the right (North east) that goes to the Center of the Universe/Union Depot.  So any additional construction would have to be to the Right of the building - where there happens to be an empty lot.

Thank you Google Earth.

Actually, to correct myself, I think it's west.

Yep, its on the west. North would go into the middle of Archer.

Bring it! Looks great, no reason to be grumpy about building in an empty parking lot.

As long as they aren't reaching into my already stretched thin pockets to do it, I fully support it. Wages aren't keeping up with all these tax increases.

Looks promising.

Can you live at the Tribune Lofts if you have children, or is it just for single white guys?

Wonderful project.  I had heard about some time ago so I'm wondering if this is just an announcement for a project that they are waiting around for the right timing.  I hope this is going up soon.  It will add nicely to the Brady.  

Downtown isn't yet suited for kids...no good parks, very little for families to walk to yet, not enough family services around (in my mind: bakery, grocery, convenience store...).  Just south of downtown is wonderful for kids, great elementary school.
