Trust me, it’s been a busy week. I’d love to tell you about the building I toured last Friday, or the people I shared lunch with. I’d love to tell you about the stories I’m chasing after. I’d love to tell you why I think some wonderful, incredible things are ahead for downtown. I’d love to say that I have a clue as to how all the different puzzle pieces awaiting to be put together next year will work out in 2020 (I have no clue). I’d love to tell you about how I’m witnessing shifts in thinking (dare I use the 1990s buzz phrase “paradigm shift”?). And yet, as evidenced by the NE 2 sidewalk and some other tidbits coming up (has anyone tried parking along NE 4 yet?), I’m hearing there may still be some folks who either weren’t in the room or weren’t listening when Jeff Speck, followed by the Urban Land Institute, came to town.
