I found this flyer at Yat’s at 54th and College. This looks like the same group that is working on the Uptown project; however, at a larger scale. I’ve commented on my mixed feelings on this project before, but I must admit that I’m a sucker for their optimism. The flyer includes a tiny rendering that is new to me, and it looks to be a larger building than is shown on the website. The older commercial building that faces 49th Street has been painted recently, which is interesting because I believe the developer plans to take it down.
It is interesting that they push for an IPD station at that corner for a couple of reasons:
Overall, I admire the initiative to revive College Avenue’s nodes. I would be interested to see what would be discussed at the meetings.
