  1. I wonder if Macy's will reopen at University Square.
  2. KJP, I think it is valid to have misgivings about this project. It would be more accurate to say that, if this project doesn't happen, then there may be another, though it may not be during any of our lifetimes.
  3. When Severance was originally developed, the mall owner owned the ring road, but it became a public right-of-way when the mall was renovated sometime around 2000.
  4. NYS is recommending that the elevated section of I-81 be removed from downtown Syracuse. I think this is a great decision, but it will still be important to do it right. Here is a link: https://www.syracuse.com/opinion/2019/04/community-grid-is-the-right-choice-to-replace-i-81-editorial.html.
  5. I like the overhead wires and don't understand people's obsession with removing them.
  6. I am a frequent customer of both anchor stores at University Square and will be glad to see improvements to the property. The original plan for the redevelopment of the May's on the Heights site was a great idea, but it was poorly executed. I hope the new leadership in University Heights will insist on a better re-design than what was shown in today's Plain Dealer.
  7. I don't know if Floun'say Caver would, in the long run, be the visionary leader I would like to see at RTA, but I think he is a great choice to lead RTA in other ways. His approach is serious and systematic.
  8. I like the new townhouses under construction at Columbus and Abbey, but the ones at Columbus and Freeman are crazy patchworks of materials and shapes. I hope the era of patchwork architecture will not last too much longer.
  9. My username followed Rob Pence's format. I can't remember the number in his username, but I know it was his address on Washington Boulevard in the West Central neighborhood of Fort Wayne. I was acquainted with Rob, who is stilled missed on UO, when I lived in West Central back in the nineties. The 908 is my address in Cleveland Heights, though, rather than my old address in Fort Wayne.
  10. Possible TOD in Buffalo: http://buffalonews.com/2018/05/14/inspired-by-allen-medical-campus-project-nfta-seeks-ideas-to-redevelop-metro-rail-stations/
  11. I remember the nice old building that used to be where the CVS is now located. It seems that South Euclid once had a substantial downtown-like commercial district along Mayfield. It is sad to see how it has become just another suburban strip.
  12. I was glad to see this in the news today. https://www.buffalorising.com/2017/09/nfta-taking-next-step-towards-light-rail-extension/
  13. Meadowbrook and Top of the Hill are still great development sites, despite the setbacks.
