I promise, it may have been a long time ago, but I assure you, there was a time when this forum had a sense of humor.

I don't know about that... Maybe less fighting, but there used to be a lot more humor (my opinion, of course)

Whenever Streets was referenced, I just wanted to be in on what everyone meant. Oh well. At least I got to see the hamster and wheel that drives Mort's mind.

I think streets always meant well, but he had the communication skills of a |expletive| potato.

He was always insisting he had a way of life better than the rest, as if he were some kind of enlightened spirit of future civilizations. I would rather buy a condom from a drug dealer with a pocket full of dirty needles, than buy his BS.

Streets had the education of an Urban Planner with the pretentiousness of a Harvard Law student. Every post was about how American cities are doomed or the worst thing to ever happen, and about how he and his wife were going to basically flee to Europe.

I always got a kick out of his posts. He did have some good ideas, but like S33 said, went about it the wrong way.

well there was a lot of cursing, telling me to try and live without a car (lolz), and ended with the following sentence which made me laugh for about an hour straight:

"I don't take |expletive| anymore. And I don't f-uck around."

He sent me a couple PM's, however, they were much more subdued than that.

I really need to make that last line my signature.

The building looked symmetrical from schematic and renders but it looks like they changed that. Never thought there'd be a swimming pool just feet from Douglas.

Exciting to see NuStyle get into the new construction development game. Who knows what else they have up their sleeves.

And here is one from the ground. Really gives you some perspective having these up as to how the building will look in the area. Really great infill here. Was this development supposed to have any commercial space in it, or just apartments?

Here is one from my building a few nights ago. Since this, they have continued to add walls. Hopefully should be moving up to the second floor soon.

It is cool how one fairly modest project can really change the feel of a block. This stretch of Douglas will go from rundown to up and coming pretty quickly.

Very exciting to see the most bleak part of downtown developed.
