    Happy this will connect pretty well to the surrounding neighborhood.

    I think the initial conceptual plans are promising, but find it a little unplanned due to the brand new road that was laid down as part of the recent BOND and Penny TAX initiatives. They would need to spend their own money rebuilding the civil part of this project.

    I live in the area that they want our approval, I use 50th street all the time, I like that I can tow my toyhauler on 50th from Penn, if this goes thru I will have to look at another route, I'm voting NO

    I hope they know the $500 is income and will be taxed at the end of the year

    Why can't you continue to do so with the shifting of 50th street?

    Given that this likely increases your property value substantially, I am surprised that an occassional re-routing would make anyone say no. Oh well, everyone has their own priorities and this is why this thing isn't a slam dunk. Investing millions and bettering the neighborhood vs. letting it continue to run down. Seems like it would be an easy choice.

    Pete in your drawing like I said to you, they want to buy those 5 houses on 52nd odd numbers, this will lower our real estate values of our houses too, to have a business come into a residential area

    anytime a business comes in, your property value decreases

    I definitely don't understand this, the places I have looked at in the city all have had steady rises in property value despite having a multitude of businesses in the backyard...

    You seriously believe that or just trolling? Maybe if they are building shacks and holding cock-fights and strip shows.

    I suppose the property around the Plaza is decreasing in value now due to those darn businesses.

    The developer told me those would not be developed as commercial but be a buffer between the project and neighborhood.

    If by decrease, you mean increase, you nailed it.

    The neighborhood is not 'run down'. It's quite nice and property values have been steadily increasing.

    The Penn Park and Registry buildings are quite full.


    I'm generally for this development but I completely understand why those very close aren't crazy about the idea.

    There are pockets increasing, but relative to values in many other areas it has not been keeping pace. And, I looked at deals on the Registry as well as the apartment complex to the south over the past 2-3 years. Neither was full, though they both had pretty steady occupancy at reasonable rates.

    This is a potentially great deal to raise the visibility of the neighborhood. It is a great location with some pretty good bones, but can use a new face and new destinations. It will be nice to have a high density commercial area. Penn Square isn't the "neighborhood" village. This could be.

    I guess I am selfish... this is an easy bike ride or walk for me and would be a good destination area. Now if they do this and then finish the Triangle at the Curve with it's mixed use development, I would be a happy man.

    That entire intersection will be redone, and if given proper input before final plans go before the review board this can be altered.

    50th would be shifted south to align with the stoplight into 50 Penn Place, there's no median there.

    the house next to me has been empty for maybe 5 years, she finally sold it for $120K then they sold it to a rental management company for $144K, my house is still worth $120K and it's bigger

    I own a home in that neighborhood and recently had it appraised and I can assure values are rising at a healthy rate.
