KICK-ASS TKC READER: Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance
Can anyone in this city think past next week? Everyone saw parking issues in River Market coming with the streetcar except those charged with anticipating them and preparing a solution. Now, those who work in the offices and restaurants are screwed. Why wasn’t a parking facility planned that blends in with the historic architecture? Of course, that’s another ball drop. The most historic heritage area we have has been allowed to be overrun with simplistic, modernist design. The character of the River Market is being taken away by the very people attracted there by its character. We should have exterior design codes like they do in the historic areas of Europe. Be as modern as you want on the inside but design for the ages on the outside.
Hopefully they will be more thoughtful in the West Bottoms before it’s too late.
