OPO’s Park is pretty dead even though it has much better views. I’m looking forward to how this one turns out. It seems like it’s gonna be big enough to have some appeal. Plus there’s a cut through the building so I suspect there will be some organic foot traffic through here.

That will change once more of the tenants actually build out and move into their spaces. Sure OPO is 90% leased but what percent is actually moved in?

I believe the OPO Plaza (at the river side) will flow into the food hall planned on the interior, so that should activate it a lot.

As I mentioned before, I don't think the BMO plaza will be as good as everyone seems to think. Has anyone actually tried to hang out in the plaza/park space at River Point? Or Wolf Point? Or 150 N Riverside? I ate with friends at Gibsons Italia a few months ago and we went out to the River Point park to take a group photo, the security guards shooed us away within seconds. And we were paying customers who were dressed nicely. No, BMO will overpolice their plaza to keep homeless people away, and harass anybody who tries to sit down unless they're wearing a suit and carrying a sandwich between the hours of 11am-1pm. I hope I am proved wrong but I'm not optimistic.

The park space looks nice enough and will only get nicer as the trees mature over time.

Wow, that's a pretty attractive park! Nice place to sit if you got time to burn before your train at Union arrives.

Thanks for the photos, Solar!
