I actually don't mind the new Mozaic phase look but I agree that retail probably won't be great if it's facing the Greenway. Advertising can help that though.I have a hard time seeing retail doing well facing the Greenway. The two blocks of 29th to the east are essentially an alley for Cub and Planned Parenthood. Not much traffic going through there....Basically all the first floor you can see in that picture (part of it us going to be enclosed bike parking)
Just my gut... Hope I'm wrong.
Speaking of the Planned Parenthood lot, I'd love to see that whole lot get re-developed. That lot is prime for re-development.
