Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

He has no valid legal arguments to make. Lawsuit might actually do his cause more harm because judge just might rule that the HPC acted illegally when they initially denied demolition.... That's what I'm thinking. This is going to unravel as one of those cases where it would have paid off to be muc...

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

Anders Christensen expects to file a lawsuit. He says he's not done fighting until as long as the building still stands. I'm wondering what grounds there are at all. He's experienced no financial damages as a result. I don't think the judge is going to have any precedent to justify overturning the ...

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

Fair points David, but then it just sounds like they're victims of their own success. I guess I find it funny that people are appalled that, after making a place safer and more desirable, people then want to move there. I personally am not a huge fan of the curb appeal of a lot of apartment building...

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

It's also hard to know how genuine everybody is in their desire to save this as a Healy home, or if it's just another horse to hitch their "No Change" wagon agenda too. I have no doubt that some people (Like Anders Christianson) want to save this because Healy built it, but I'm not sure about every...

Loads OK for me. Start at the 42 minute mark.

at the 50 minute mark is where CM Yang starts voicing his disappointment in the personal attacks directed at CM Bender.

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

Heckling? As in heckling in the Council chambers? Or do you mean the general mostly-online bullying tactics? Just curious if there was any kerfuffle today, or if people could behave like adults. heckling was the wrong word. More or less the bully tactics I think, hey kept it broad and didn't name n...

Re: 2316-2320 Colfax Apartments

Interesting vote by Yang. I know a few Northsiders were lobbying him to vote no, presumably because they're afraid of setting a precedent that would cause even more teardowns in the area. I can't watch the video at work. If Yang made any comments, what was the essence of them? He spent the bulk of ...
