It doesn't bother me that the Nordstroms and Anthropologies of the world, or whatever, locate in Cherry Creek instead of downtown. But for downtown to function as a neighborhood it needs its own service retail. That Target we've been pining for for the past decade-plus won't help much if it shows up in Cherry Creek or on Colorado Blvd.
I think (hope) the target next door to CC (by the way should we get on board with the abbreviations crowd and start calling it CheCre? I can't type the accent on the first e for some reason. You know, "shay cray"??) in Glendale will insulate downtown from having to worry about CC getting another target. If "che cre" got one that would be two within a mile or two; if downtown did it would be a much more reasonable 5-6 miles out

A Target also operates on a much different model than really everything else down there, exactly because it's for day to day purchases. Give us 50,000 people who need underwear, and you'll get a Target. But you're not going to need a second Orvis store. (Apple I think could work based on day traffic.)

I'm just glad downtown got the REI. That'd annoy me if I had to drive to Colorado for that.

Your late night recreation should really be happening in CoMe, not CiPa.

My recreation last night was playing football at WaPa (yes I was one of those people), which we did walk to, World of Beer (yes we drove), and playing catch with a football in the middle of the street where I live in CoMe at 12am. No cars. Quiet. Awesome. Sorry for not keeping my everyday posting Cherry Creek week streak on DI. Might have to go into Cherry Creek week 2.0

Well then... Two weeks ago there was nothing going on there and I haven't been around there since. Awesome! Two 12-story buildings across the street from each other. Sweet!

We bank a temp agency who, naturally, employs a lot for construction work. So when he comes in we nerd out about the development around the city and he told me about that project today. I haven't seen him since last week so it all makes sense why I'm late on that news.

So ultimately, why didn't you say anything when you found out first, comoneymaker. Rude!!

Didn't know you didn't know. I drove by it last week and there were big dirt movers on the lot and the sidewalk protector things. Its just a bummer Steele Creek Apartments cranes will probably come down right when 1st and Steele are going up.

It seems that all of the construction and related activities are resulting in at least one business to shut down doors there in Cherry Creek, blaming the construction and related activities for the shutdown.

I'm not sure if this is good or bad.... but at least bad for the business that had to shut down.
