Wonderful Mobyhead. That one building by the Gold building, seems like it would be a good modern renovation. What is that one? across the digging area? Thanks, SCOTT

Which one? The ones on the right are the homeless shelter(renovate them SOMEONE!) and the one on the left I think is that knights of the pythias(?) building next to the old city hall(?).

The building with the remnants of the rooftop water tower is the Wulsin Building. The Pythian Castle is to the left (east) of that, just outside the picture.

So, I couldn't be absolutely sure from the photos, but it doesn't look like there has been any foundation work yet for this project, right?

Definitely no foundation work yet. They've still got a lot of digging to do, plus I think they're still shoring up the sides of the pit that they've dug so far.

WOW! That last photo you posted CorrND just shows how big of an impact those twin Kosene Towers will make at the Market Square site! Once that hole is filled in, that angle from the ground will show one helluva a panoramic shot of the skyline! Great photos btw CorrND!

The old city hall would make an excellent art museum.

Great photos Chris.


This shot demonstrates one of the many voids that need to be filled in. Someone mentioned how the Kosene towers would help to expand the core eastward, and I completely agree.

Firehouse Square is an absolute embarrassment. How the hell did that get approved in the first place?

Now if only we can only get someone to pitch a 12-story for the City Hall site...we'd be in business then.

Actually, I'm serious. The old City Hall has been used for a myriad of functions and has shown its age since the 70's. Once the core expands eastward, it could be sitting on some nice real estate.

Don't get me wrong--if they (potential developers) can find an adaptive re-use for the building, that's fine. I would much rather see that than another Firehouse Square, or a gravel surface lot.

A bit off topic. Has anyone ever shopped at Stout's Shoes? It seems to have survived pretty well over the years.

I've bought a few pairs of shoes there. They're pretty good about service if you're into that sort of thing.
