Re: 200 12th Ave S - Reuter Walton - 12 Stories / 130'

Highly recommend the public comments in this one. There are a handful of useful comments about making space for dogs and loading (which the developer has responded to) and a lack of retail space (which is not addressed and actually is a big issue for this area, it needs to be included on the corner...

Re: OX-OP Gallery and Residences.

Exterior paneling has started to go onto this. I'll try and grab a photo from the side and back, as this picture only shows a fraction of the building (wraps around the Dayblock building).

Pile driving began on Monday here, been holding our breath with a newborn next door at East End but so far he's able to sleep through it. They are making quick work on the lot, I'll try to pop out and grab a picture.

Re: East End / Thresher Square / Trader Joes - 713 Washington Ave S

Also missed that there is a second restaurant opening in the building as well, and looks like its seperate from the Hotel's restaurant (Umbra). That would explain the interior build out that is still going on at the corner of 3rd and Park. Sherman Associates also has a lease signed for a Denver-base...
