  1. The Brewery District CURC temporarily reopened that bar as a temporary bar as part of the launch of Moerlein's OTR Ale in 2007. At the time, there was literally nothing open past 5PM, and the police and Market staff told us we were crazy. Cops told us all kinds of "fun" stories about that bar. We also started the Biergarten in 2009 which was just after they started their Sunday hours. We were lucky to gross a couple hundred dollars a day in those days and most Sundays were ghost towns. Even years after we had opened the Biergarten, we had people constantly coming up to us for years saying "when did you open?, I've been coming to the Market for years". They literally would park in the north lot, walk to their couple of stalls in the Market house, then go back home. No one hung out or explored the neighborhood.
  2. One of the joys of renderings is hiding easter eggs like this.
  3. It is. Apparently Hamilton/Sohn/Clyffside is still not out of the running for a second location.
  4. Brad did get stymied a lot trying to get these through an uncooperative building/zoning department. I supported his project in concept, but the actual execution did not result in a good project from density/urban standpoint.
  5. Is DOTE coordinating with any of this, I wonder if these locations will be left as loading zones or returned to street parking (where applicable).
  6. The problem is that this project took normal sized lots and put a very low density development on it. I am all for adding small units in the back of existing lots or weirdly shaped lots, but this seems to be a lot of wasted open space. I mean the parking pad alone is as big as the footprint of the house.
  7. Usually the contractor, though everybody usually gets sued. Will depend on the cause if is design or construction process or materials.
  8. Rich people work to their own schedule and can afford to sit on property till the right deal is ready. They may still want to do their development there. Who knows?
  9. They do write tickets, but are mostly complaint driven. I'm not sure if they have the legal authority to cite individuals in the act, the problem is they usually they cite the property owner (including public sidewalks), even if it is someone else doing the littering. It creates a negative feedback loop where property owners are rightfully ticked off over a $500 ticket for something that blew onto their property, so no one wants to call.
  10. They have never mentioned using the lagering cellars. The only plans I've seen show parking on that site. Berding alluded to a beer garden, but nothing more.
  11. A major difference in living in urban neighborhoods is exactly that, there is no one-stop shop for everything. All those things take space, this is half the size of the suburban Kroger. I don't want a massive Kroger that takes me 10 minutes to get to the milk where I have to pass by a bank, a coffee shop, and a pharmacy.
  12. But those aren't subsidized by charities. Crossroads exists to serve under-insured and lower income folks with a wider range of support than the Little Clinic.
  13. It's not that simple because Crossroads isn't just a retail pharmacy, it's a full on health center. Hopefully at some point the uses can be combined with another non-profit and moved to a better location, as that building has been an anti-urban eyesore ever since it was built.
  14. Renderings always do. Unfortunately they usually don't reflect real life accurately.
  15. Have never been inside but it is 3 story brick. You can see it if you walk down Rowan Ct on the south side of Rookwood. My understanding is that multi story ones were still pretty rare. Actually, most OTR buildings were built without plumbing, but the shared toilets were added later.
