Hue apartments downtown are basically done and the VFW site project is also just about to wrap up.

The new hotel on the VFW site looks great. The hotel on at Virgil's site is also nearing completion and looks good. Looks like they are starting on phase 2 of Discovery Square.

I still find the VFW project so odd in that the RR tracks just go right by it with no fencing or visual separation at all. I still hope they somehow someday can find a way to better integrate the downtown tracks snafu.

Those downtown tracks are likely to just go away in a few years. Most of the customers have closed recently.

Great news -- I suppose the follow-up question is could they be repurposed in their current state for passenger rail? Perhaps a few cut and covers with existing ROW?

I guess people don't really eat canned vegetables any more.
