At last night's Zoning Commission
hearing, approval was given for the second-stage PUD
, along with some modifications to the first-stage PUD. This should be the last zoning hoop for EYA
to leap through before the project gets underway. The Capitol Quarter
web site now says "Coming Fall 2006." But is that when sales start, will any sort of construction begin before then? Right now, I don't know. I do hope, though, that the city gets moving and demolishes the rest of the vacant Capper buildings before EYA has to start marketing the new construction, because it appears some scary elements are squatting now in those buildings (fences have been bent back, and doors to the buildings are broken open).
