Is the 10,000 sq ft of retail space still part of the plan for San Marco Promenade? It doesn't look to be part of Phase I.

Looks like no, at least not until additional apartments are built on the site.

Ventures appears to be moving forward with their apartments on the Southbank, beside the Aetna building.

This was the one that was reduced from 13-stories/300 units to 8-stories/184 units after pushback from surrounding businesses.

$1.7 million permit to begin on the foundation approved on Friday, with permitting for vertical construction currently under review by the city.

Great! This was one I wasn't for sure if it ever materialize or not.

Are they replacing the basketball court? I've noticed on several occasions that it is being used by kids in the neighborhood.

There are 2 courts in Schell Park. One is falling apart. They're removing it and replacing it with a playground. The other basketball court in Schell Park will remain.

Nice! Sounds like a real improvement that's long overdue.

Forgot about that one too. It popped up and was quickly submitted to the dead projects file. Big savings for the taxpayers!

Anyone know if Vagabond is still planning to open a larger coffee shop in the Barnett?

I hate to pick nits (that's a lie, I love to! :D), but the street address for #21 (4555 St. Johns) doesn't match the photo in the article.  4555 is west of Roosevelt, the pic looks like it is in the Avondale shopping area.

I welcome any place past security that offers more breakfast options.
