More residential, especially starting to populate that dead space between Arts District and Main Street. Love it!

This time might be the charm for the Houseman after some misses over the years, great news.

Great news, I like it! I actually remember seeing this building for sale for a while on loopnet.

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.

I think this is the old thread about the taller proposal.

The taller option would have been nice, but I’m glad we are still getting a remodel of this building and maybe that will allow another lot to be developed.

Definitely agreed. The current building is fine as is, and will be even better once it is re-developed.
