Incredible! I haven't even heard about some of these developments.

This is a new record for you, BV--your reconnaisance work is really astonishing. I am happy that even the plan commission has a pro-development attitude.

I especially like 148 E. Ontario St--what a cool looking design.

Did they discuss 4th Presybterian?
