The pile-driver has also worked its way around the northern excavation perimeter...

Does anyone know how many square ft of retail is designated for the Metropolis project? They don't seem to emphasize retail as much as Fig Central, which I'm also a bit confused as some sources say about 250,000 square ft, while other sources say about 450,000 square ft.

CityWatch, Youll be glad to know that investors are very happy with 8th and hope as it just sold for $200 million to Essex. They are at 50% occupancy with stabilized occupancy expected by the third quarter of this year

Pershing Square Renew is working to make that happen. Right now there is an online survey where we are asking DT stakeholders to tell us what they want in a renewed Pershing Square. The survey is about 5 minutes long, but its definitely worth it.

I wish they would just restore Pershing Square to how it was. Destroy the parking structure under the park, fill it in, and bring it back to how it used to be.

Unfortunately they've already stated that razing the parking garage is a non-starter. Whatever improvements they make, they'll be working around the existing parking garage. Hopefully they can at least reconfigure the ramps so they don't create such a barrier.

Didn't they make a design that still had the classic park that incorporated the structure? I think the only difference was that it had a slight slope to it along with the ramps at both ends.

The parking garage is a big money generator for the parks department. But eliminating a ramp or two is very much on the table.

Two fewer ramps would help.

But fewer ramps would not overcome the plaza's other fatal flaw: it is too high above (and therefore disengaged from) the surrounding sidewalks and streets due to the existing parking decks being not fully sunken below grade. Getting rid of the parking -- or re-building it lower -- is the correct solution. Anything that doesn't bring the plaza and its surroundings in proper relationship with each other is just throwing more money away.

agree 1000%, like it was in 1939, that was beautiful (as seen from the pictures) but instead of the fountain i would build a victory column with a golden statue of an angel like the angel of independence in Mexico City.
