Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Isn't this on a flood plain?
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

I wouldn't have thought so, although that might explain why the site has sat undeveloped for half a century or more.

Am I correct in thinking that this building is no longer mixed use?

I don't recall ever reading that it was going to be anything but single use...

Maybe I'm wrong - I thought the plan at one time was for a convenience  store and other uses on the ground floor.  Maybe I'm thinking of a different building.

The web site says "2,100 square feet of commercial space...a total of 30 units with a mix of one and two bedroom suites." Very nice. We need more buildings like that.

I live near this building, and driving past it I do question where they are going to put cars, not only for the rental, but retail as well. Doesn't seem to be much space for anything. Unless they're building spots on the other side of the retaining wall, but I'm guessing 20 parking spots at the most. Or maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about. Huh

There seems be to a small garage (overhang) behind the first floor units and there where two large straight trucks maneuvering in the lot behind the building today

I remember going by and reading the signs stating occupancy January 2015 (or was it 2016) and thinking for the tenants it was going to be fairly uncomfortable lying in the snow.

Glad to see this property utilized.
