Wait - am I seeing this correctly? "Carriage Houses" will dot Riverside Avenue to shield Riverside Avenue from the parking lot? Wake up! This is supposed to be / should be an urban neighborhood that connects Riverside to Downtown...this could be one of the coolest locations in the city...it has the potential to be a great "Midtown" in Atlanta...or West End in Nashville...but instead, here's what has happened / is happening: LaVilla.
So, first, the Fidelity building goes in and has parking lots facing the street. Then, that weird Alfred duPont building goes in with its weird little winding road. Then, almost every single corner lot on Forest, between 95 & Riverside Ave. has been converted to a parking lot, retention pond, or culdesac...NOW we're adding in carriage houses?! And I recall reading somewhere of the possibility of a Courtyard Marriott going in to one of these projects? Seriously? Courtyard Marriott? There isn't a chain more "office park" related than Courtyard Marriott. Seriously, I'm waiting to read the "Brooklyn Frankenstein" story.
Suburbia doesn't work in what should be an urban neighborhood!
