I wish there is more traditional styledo high-density development. These funky post-industrial style will look ugly and dated 20 years from now. I really like the Victorian style of the townhouse northeast of Virginia lake. Timeless and elegant.

Interesting! Does Mardian have any kind of track record? I like the chances of this actually being completed based on the fact I'm sure you found it by scouring the permit site (Less hyping done to the public).

This is great! Now hopefully someone does something with the former Grant's Landing site.

That was the house I grew up in, until I was 12 years old! Sad to see it gone. It was a beautiful 2 story home with a lot of character! Strangely they filed the demo permit on my birthday!

This looks amazing! What a nice way to invite people of all ages and capabilities to your hotel. Will you be offering anything special just for us locals? I do not smoke.or gamble and as this hotel is staying with the Marriott guidelines. I'm more inclined to stay here for a romantic getaway than any other hotel in the area. Thank you for helping our economy and for making this a family friendly location. Great job!

I think I read on the facebook post that they decided they don't need the loft and will likely remove it.

The banister probably was to bring it to code and that's it. The tenants can surely replace it if they want and there may even be a build out allowance for them to use to make such improvements. Why spend a ton of money putting in an ornate banister when the first tenant may not even like/want it? In this case, Patagonia is an outdoor company and plain wood look might be perfect for what they want.

Well if you look at the first picture, it has a car driving out of the building, so it clearly has "integral" parking (whatever that means). And why, exactly, would a 94 unit property have 1,000 cars? Ten cars per tenant? You might want to check your math on that. As far as the bums and street walkers go, with activity there, they'll likely move on, but even so, if you're going to live downtown, that's part of it.....a downtown has downtown type activities associated with it.

respectfully disagree. I would have a major problem with my front entry exiting directly adjacent to streetwalkers and bums. A more important question for this scenario is if this building has integral parking or not (doesn't look like it)? If so, you could just enter and exit without being effected at all. If not, I wonder where those extra 1000 cars are going to park? Is this some sort of greenwashing effort that won't work trying to force tenants to not drive "walk score of 87, bike score of 80"? I wonder what city planning had to say about this one.

this is awesome news. I hope they have sense enough to replace that horrific guardrail/handrail. Probably cost the developers a whole hundred bucks to put that thing in.

The new location will replace the outlet in the distribution center. The current location is being turned into an onsite childcare facility for the Patagonia employees. Pretty awesome.

Excellent news to add to the retail options downtown. Hopefully we can get a lot of out-of-towners spending money at these places too. Really like Patagonia gear (at the outlet prices!) and their ties to the local community. They've repaired numerous articles of clothing for my family over the years. Absolutely hope that the outlet at their warehouse stays opens for the locals.

Looking good! Any ideas on the price ranges for these apartments?

I don't think the train trench will be looking like that for long. In walking that neighborhood four times a week, it's not as blighted as it's portrayed, and the farmer's market in the summer is right around the corner and draws scores of peeps.. It's not a big deal to residents who already live downtown, so I doubt it will be a big deal to those who choose to live here.

Nice project overall, unfortunate the roof deck and pool look right into the gaping ugliness of the train trench. The side park facing Arlington isn't going to work at all, all 3 sides facing blight.

We do not need this on Virginia St. Downtown. Not the highest and best use for this property.
