Just my opinion but there is NO WAY that Cosmo breaks ground anytime soon.

So this morning I called the office of Simplon Development (Cosmo's developer) to inquired about the project. I asked why they started construction on the sales office but haven't finished it yet. All the woman could say is "It's coming along". When asked whether the project is being delayed, she then said that she only answered the phone and couldn't really answer that. Hmmmm.......

I drove by the site tonight. There is no evidence of anything about to happen. In fact, the current site still has the old VW dealership building and a home/garden type shop opened up on a portion of it. I am unsure if teh home/garden/chatchski store is leaving any time soon. I hope so tho.

i hope Pier is built...didnt one of the forumers on the last thread purchase a unit there already?


another thing...Embassy 1414...anybody got any details about that at all? the banner is still at the site...but i havent heard squat about it:(

spoonman Mar 21, 2007 6:11 AM

Better than a parking lot I guess

Derek Mar 21, 2007 6:14 AM

yes, parking lots suck :)

Urban Sky Mar 21, 2007 6:35 AM

Derek Mar 21, 2007 6:37 AM

i actually want to see nice, new homeless shelters integrated into the East Village area so we can get them off the streets and have a safer, cleaner way of life downtown...
