  1. I really wish items 4 and 5 were to build something on the vacant dirt lot on the opposite corner of Piedmont and Atwells, rather than tearing down a house to building a new house. Sigh.

  2. Where can we find the renderings for the Piedmont building?

  3. Agreed, Jef. Regardless, I’m thrilled to see medium-scale infill development happening in neighborhoods. Development like that gets me way more excited than the possibility of a 46-story luxury tower.
