    Is this another new St. John’s building for the wealthy elderly that won’t contribute any property tax?

  2. Tim says:

    That’s the one!

    That’s a great point by Mike. It seems objectors will come out of the woodwork to oppose any building over 3 stories in this city, but when St. John’s proposes a tax exempt $120 million building there is not a peep. if this was done by a private developer for market rate people of the same wealth demographic this building would be paying some $ 4 million/yr in property taxes- or $ 80 million over the next 20 years. that helps build a nice streetcar expansion down Farwell! Instead- nada.
    let’s at least hope the Alderman and city ask for a front door on Prospect. The other St. John’s tower has no operable door on Prospect for pedestrians. Not sure how they got away with that when anybody wanting to build the smallest building anywhere on the east side must have an operable door face the street it’s on.

    The key to no vocal opposition is that the building is built within existing zoning codes which means no appearances before the zoning committees or common council.
