I don’t understand how most of these electronic/hodgepodge stores don’t go out of business in this area with rents soaring. It makes the area feel so cheap.

They should also pass an ordinance that bans those window gates as that makes the area look ugly as well and dead at night.

Because “cheap” electronic stores as you put it have every right to do business here. Why are you so pessimistic over a few electronics stores?

Im not saying they dont have the right to do business, im just wondering how they stay in business due to the increasing rents and with competition of big box retail like best buy and walmart.

either way they will probably be gone in a year or two.

Excellent news…even better would be if a hotel like Ace Hotel would come to downtown..that would be a big catalyst for the area

It’s one of the better blocks which can be revitalized more easily. The fact its close to the MWC site helps as well.

This is good for historic buildings. they are restoring it to its original height and giving it a new purpose that wont significantly change the aesthetics of the building.
