Wasn't there a point years back that this site was proposed for something else? Thinking it was much taller but not sure if this is the same property. It was one of those proposed but never built things.

Re: Red Bird Mall

They do seem to be enjoying a certain level of success here which is very good for this part of the city. Once they all come back to the office, between Chime, Parkland, UTWS and all the the other employers there will be at least 2,000 employees here every day. A number that will grow from there.
