    What ever happened to quality construction? Seems like there is only one architect in this town considering almost all the buildings look the same. I don’t find it surprising at all that the only development that doesn’t fall under the “Milw. Park East Develop. Plan” is the only development that isn’t an eyesore. It’s a shame that the city’s leaders didn’t recognize the true value of this area and the benefits that proper development could have brought to this city. Mark up another “FAIL” for this city. (The new arena will probably be the last nail in the coffin)

    Besides the future value of tax revenue from new property, what is the rush? Its not like the condo market is white hot and how many more apartments can the city handle? If my count is right, there have been between four and six buildings started/completed in the past couple of years.

    Why not wait for a new, interesting, dynamic proposal to be offered? Something that would truly be a good use of the available land.

    Plus, who wants to live on the corner of 6th and Juneau? There must be more inventive use for that space than another condo/apartment building. Lets look outside the box here, Milwaukee!

    “Yes, buy condos. Those are great real estate investments.” – said by no one, ever.

    I happened to be downtown yesterday and noticed that there seems to be a lot of construction between Water and Jefferson streets, south of Wisconsin Ave. Does anyone know what this is about?

    @ Mr. Sweeney – They are building the new Marriott Hotel in that location.
