I'm not so sure you're sure your sure.

 

Sure, you'd say that. Always so sure of yourself.

I'm starting to think magazine top destination lists are getting to be as common as oriental carpet close-out sales.

Can I say it doesn't do the Hudson market any favours to be so near the "edge" of downtown, so to speak? Most tourists aren't inclined to stray very far, as we've established countless times. So when people sense that they're getting near that proverbial edge, methinks they'll turn back more often than not. People like to be in the thick of things. The remaining two Hudson towers will help some, but this is why I think it would be in downtown's collective best interest to develop those gateway properties around Douglas and Caledonia, Blanshard and Caledonia, etc.

Agreed, but not with low-budget 4-storey crap shacks. If this section of downtown is to reach its full potential signature developments are needed right through to the 5-corners at Hillside.
