    “An apartment project targeted for a city-owned site on N. Edison St. in East Town stalled after the usually pro-density alderman Robert Bauman objected to the developer’s proposal to build no parking and instead lease an adjacent parking garage.”

    Didn’t Bauman have a part in killing the Goll Mansion proposal also because it was “too dense” for the East Side? I don’t see how he can be “pro-density”…

  2. Danny says:

    Bauman needs to go in general. He is a horrible advocate for the downtown area. As a man challenged by change and scared of design, he seems an outdated choice for a councilman. Would be nice if the areas voters would take notice as opposed to rewarded him with a “lifetime” appointment.

    @Danny I live in his district downtown. I stopped voting for him.

    Long before the requisite 2-4 car garage (filled with toys and lawn equipment) and much earlier than when owning an automobile (or 3) became the ultimate status symbol, Milwaukee’s carriage / livery stables provided delivery of pre-arranged and on demand horse-drawn vehicles.
    In the era of driverless cars and services like Zipcar, I can imagine a return to ordering a driverless car driven to an urban highrise from the neighborhood auto-station.
    What’s new is never new.
