At tomorrow (Thursday, March 18, 2010) night's Blagden Alley-Naylor Court ("BANC") Association Monthly Meeting, Douglas Development will discuss its development plans for the southwest corner of Ninth and N Streets, Northwest (the lot presently occupied by Old City Green). Plans are very preliminary and probably at very least a year away from becoming a reality. Douglas Development requested this opportunity to solicit community input.
How do you think this corner lot should be developed? I think a mini version of The Exchange (the building on the opposite corner), with ground floor retail and residences above, would look great. A modern, large restaurant with rooftop seating like Lauirol Plaza would be cool too.
I will be sad to see Old City Green displaced, but hope that when this project moves forward we can help find them a new home nearby. A few places I have in mind are the corner of Seventh or Marion and P or in the 1300 block of Ninth.
