Personally I think "Market District" would be a better neighborhood moniker.

For this area to really take off - I think the first thing that needs to happen building a new Farmer's Market in the area that includes an indoor building so the market can take place throughout the year...

As to the apartment building being proposed - I don't think something this size is terrible. Look at the North Loop when it first took off.

I do have an issue with the city concentrating affordable/low income housing and social services heavily in certain areas of the city (i.e. Stevens Square/Whittier/Franklin, etc.). I applaud the building that went up in the North Loop, even though it is on the outskirts of the neighborhood. I suppose it has to do do with the price of the land...

I think it’s close enough to rate inclusion. Lee’s Liquor Lounge site up for sale.

It's a gem, and was relatively cheap last time. I wonder what it's listed for now?
