Comments

ps: the sophomore Severe Severe album is out this week too! You can get more details at www.severesevere.com

I would almost fly back to Albany to see Times New Viking. They are the toppest notch.

Great idea! I like the week ahead posts a lot; this should be another useful weekly feature.

Huh. I was at the print shop when the man was making up the posters for Times New Viking. Small worlds, etc.

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
