Don't forget that the Great Recession delayed some of these investments because construction funds dried up for a few years.
If you haven’t taken a stroll lately, check out this interactive guide to the recent development.
I welcome the changes and am pleased to have been part of the planning and development process, shaping the various projects to fit into our historic neighborhood. Many community meetings were held during those 10-15 years and now visitors and new residents are witnessing the results.
Long-timers are anxious for the construction phase to end and to have our neighborhood back! In particular, the 1400 blocks of S, Swann and T have had to shoulder the burden and inconvenience of the various construction projects but we can see that completion is near!
