  1. Please pardon me for using your space: No have gang on report, only Andrew Nelson. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. Sounds like a part shelter or mental place. Glad they are planning to include a healthy eating grocery store. I live a couple of blocks away.

  3. The 8 or so store fronts have been empty for a long time. Should be an improvement to the area.

  4. 7 floors is small for the area. I would have thought like 10 at this location. Hopefully, we will see greater density following the rezoning.

    It’s all part of the city’s master plan to make the underside of every El resemble a scene straight out of Blade Runner.
