The Kind of Developers We Need

As most of the older readers of this blog know, I have some problems with one of the developers who has done work downtown. For the sake of this post, they shall remain nameless.

I recently found this link and mention of Oasis Development
These are the type of developers we need to provide incentives to, so that they keep up with their positive improvements to the Downtown area.

Check this out! I noticed this garden over the past summer, but I was never really sure what it was. This is cool stuff.  Get in on the action for next growing season.

  1. The city was far too lenient with the un-named developer, even issuing passing inspections and occupancy permits where they shouldn't have. I have my own inspection report as proof - and those problems were later fixed.

    But for anyone looking to move to DTL, this un-named company was not the only one to develop here, and a lot of the issues with their buildings have been addressed by now.

    I just wish that developer had more pride in their work and cared more for their reputation.

    It does appear that other developers have done the right thing and are now enjoying the rewards of a better reputation.

  2. Yeah. I love this building now that everything is fixed and we have a new management company, but I don't actually want them around anymore.

    How do we attract good developers to the Lynn area? There is still untapped potential for new buildings, renovations, etc.

    What's up with that building on the corner of Washington and Union with the sign collector. I think it's time to get behind whatever that project is. Who was it that wanted to develop that building into artist lofts?

  3. Corey,

    The guy who owns the Prime Manufacturing building on Washington and Union is David Waller. Remember when ISD gave him a hard time about his signs? I think they now understand that what he's doing with them is a good thing. He collects and restores them, and sometimes brings them out for public events and parades. It is my understanding that he is looking to develop the upper floors.

    David Gass is the one who wanted to develop subsidized artists residences there, after being pushed out of a deal to do so where Mayo built MV24.

    The challenge with Prime for residential use is that it is literally right outside the line zoned for it. There are a few "key players" who do not want the building developed that way, not because they're anti-artist but because they don't want residences there at all.
