    It be great if developers of this & other new apartment buildings acknowledged & supported the growing trend of biking around the city by building a secured ground floor space with easy outdoor access for bike storage and maintenance/repair. What a great way to attract and accommodate city dwellers who use 2 wheels to travel in town. Maybe a Vulture Space #2?

  2. Dave Reid says:

    @Lisa H I believe they intend to do secured ground floor space for bikes… Not a shop per se but easy storage for tenants.

  3. Hereiam says:

    @Lisa you will also be happy to know that as part of its renovations the Wells Building (recently profiled here on UM) added a secure first floor space with easy outdoor access for bike storage.

  4. Lisa H says:

    Great news about Wells Building’s bike space. Maybe add a tire pump, Allen wrench, & a few other tools to the bike room…all secured to the wall with cables, of course.

    Under next steps you list “3. Common Council.” Was that passed today?

    Ordinance 1 Ordinance 2

  6. Dave Reid says:

    @Mike Yes. It received unanimous approval.

  7. Aaron Dixon says:

    700 E. Kilborn high rise: Bring it!

  8. Katie says:

    Any news on this development? I can’t find anything about this project anywhere.

  9. Dave Reid says:

    @Katie,
    This one has been pretty quiet for a long time now, which often enough means no project.. But we’ll see.
