    The longer they hang onto it, the more it’s going to be worth
    Which won't mean anything outside of property tax increases unless they one day pull the trigger and sell.

    At this point, it's not much difference as a driver to enter Bricktown directly from the Blvd vs taking a quick right on Shields and then another quick right. Not exactly difficult to get into Bricktown from the Blvd.

    They were obligated to spend the money because of the previous screw up with Uhaul, so here's what you get.

    Same thing with the re-working of the Bricktown Plaza to nowhere. They didn't get the necessary ROW but would lose the funds if not spent.

    ^^^the city didn't finish the canal plaza on time so they still didn't get all the funds and had to use GF money to finish

    Fantastic.

    How much from the general fund?

    Not sure. It was on the city council agenda a couple months back. Take my comment with a grain of salt... I can't remember all the details. It may have just been an ask for cash due to the project being more expensive. I don know however that the project went on way past the TIGER grant deadline.

    I wish U-Haul would at least take of the metal siding and rejuvenate the original brick if they are going to stay in place

    I remember a few years back they when they had a fire it exposed the original facing underneath the brick for a few days during repairs, and it looked nice. But then of course they put the siding back up.

    They could at least fix their signage on the south side.

    I think the landscaping on the western end of the Blvd. looks good. The grass was dead of course, so I bet it will look great in the spring.

    Pete, what is going in the holes in the second picture you posted? I've been meaning to ask, as I've driven down the western portion of the boulevard a few times and was wondering what was up with that. I'm assuming some sort of landscaping once the weather turns warmer?

    would it not be trees like other P180 style streetscapes?

    Yes, trees.
