Whither 10th Street Station?

The grungy homeless encampment cum parking lot at the corner of 10th and Williams Street has lost it’s zeal. For some time it was designated as the site of the soon-to-come “10th Street Station” but no longer. The sign that previously announced “10th Street Station” as “coming soon” is gone.

The time of it’s initial grand opening – Fall 2006 – has long since past and I think whatever developers were attached to the project wanted to spare themselves the embarrassment of falling short for yet another season.

I’ll admit I haven’t done much detective work for this post, but I did find some online chatter about the space and a realtor’s PDF of the proposed development.

If anyone has any additional information – like a city government link about zoning/planning or an article from a local pub – leave a comment.

The less janky that corner can look in the future, the better.

    Given the high visibilty of that corner, I was always surprised by the small size of the development they had planned. I’m betting they weren’t able to find anyone who wanted to rent there at the price they were going to have to change to cover the land value. A taller development would make more sense so the land cost can be spread over more square footage.

    Don’t cry for the developer, I bet they made a nice profit on selling the land since values in Midtown have continued to climb.
