It's been a while since I just talked to you guys. I'm very bullish on our downtown this year. A feeling I haven't had for a few years. 14 Central is locked in by RCG and will soon become new residences. Anything to increase our number downtown is a good thing in my books. Empty buildings don't do anyone good. I believe that the RCG folks are trying to work with the deadbeat Athanas family to see what they can do with the Hawthorne lot. That would be a huge victory. I would like to be there with the first sledgehammer.
33 Central also seems to be in play. The city has done the right thing to ensure our safety and somehow this has led to the lowering of the asking price to 249K and more recently 200K. I can't find a listing now, but the 200K price was the last I saw publicly on the internet. I guess Zee Mah is finally serious about helping us out and unloading this thing to someone who can do something with it. Looking forward to the day those boards come down.
If you read the Lynn Journal, please stop! It's like the onion, only The Onion lets you know it's fake news. The Lynn Journal recently called our Downtown "dead on arrival." So clueless it almost makes you wonder if the Onion writers may be on staff?
