Depending on the angle, this is what it would look like.

I would love to see downtown redevelop going west along van Buren over to grand/Capitol Mall. That area seems the best possibility for future office and very high density construction as opposed to the Warehouse, Garfield and Roosevelt which are either low rise or residential areas primarily.
This area has a ton of potential and the preservation of Welnick and Levy venues have kept that possible. WVB is zoned for the highest buildings, and is an important connection from Central Station to Grand Ave and Capitol. All of WVB, Monroe, and Adams are filled with historic structures that would offer something really unique if blended together by highrises. On WVB, Sun Devil Auto and Firestone being restored into restaurants, and the restoration of the 5th-6th Ave block of warehouses would be awesome. If the Personnel Building on Monroe works out, there'd be action through 2nd Ave, picking up again at 4th Ave. I hope the Church gets multiple tenants and is more than an event space; and the Masonic Temple would make a great Arts Center, maybe in the middle of a college?

Unfortunately, anti-urban fortresses like the Federal Court, ATT Building, Fox5, Comerica, and garages like the one eating the Masonic Temple break up the connectivity. And, MCCCD owns the majority of 5th-6th Ave warehouses, so their uses will likely be underutilized. But, one day, wider sidewalks, parallel parking, a center median, and Streetcar down WVB past towers of Best Western, Sprouts, and Coldstone would be great amongst the historic buildings and residential towers.

P.S. There is a bar opening next to ACME Print on 7th Ave in the TAX building. Love the small projects in that area helping to make 7th Ave a viable walk between the Arts Districts.

Signage and patio are up for NCounter at Union@Roosevelt. Good to see retail already moving in unlike the years we had to wait for one shop at Roosevelt Point. Hopefully this snowballs into other retailers moving in sooner rather than later. Always checking on the retail spaces at Portland on the Park, doesn't seem to be any yet.
