“Great article on the General Plan fight.
“On the same front, you might be interested to see that in other cities, Grupe actually does build/invest in some cool urban infill, I see no reason why they can’t do the same here. Check out what they’re doing in Sac.”
Here’s a partial answer to Garcia’s question. The recession killed Grupe’s south bank development. As to why they didn’t pick up the project where they left off when the economy recovered, we’ll have to ask.
But Garcia should be careful what he wishes for. Were Grupe to build such mouth-watering housing downtown, Ten Space would have some real competition on its hands!
