On another note, are there any rumblings of moving the inter-city bus station currently located on North Atherton?
Thought I'd bring back some meal memories for you mville.

I just ate there last weekend when I was in town! There was a 45 minute wait, but it was worth it. It was nice to see so many tower cranes up on campus and around downtown.

New Mixed-Use High-Rise Proposed for Garner Street Lot

Looks like a new proposal for a very underutilized lot in town.

A treasure trove of renderings in the planning documents. This is being developed by the same company (CA Student) as the RISE development. It really shows in the quality of the design which is pretty top notch (especially for State College).

^ Yeah that's looking pretty sweet. Wondering if this below view implies they would actually project games and other things, or if it is just a possible idea for a graphic over the windows.

I guess this pic I took last year makes sense now:




I was wondering about the last rendering plan, does this mean all the current retail buildings along College Ave between Garner and Hiester will be replaced?

It seems that if phase two goes through, yes, all of those storefronts will go.

Just checked the Rise camera again. I didn't realize there is a time lapse option at the bottom. I'm getting old and miss a lot of things.
Very nice.

I always feel like retail dies at Mclanahans, if not there, then Mcdonalds. I wonder if this building and the businesses it attracts will give people something for which to walk farther down College ave?

Totally agreed, there is something about College Ave past McDonalds that feels really dead. I think it mostly has a lot to do with the fact that the sidewalk there is only about half the width as the rest of College Ave (Beaver Ave has the same problem).

Thankfully, the ground floor of RISE will be a 16,500 sqft grocery store, so it ought to be a pretty big draw for students, notwithstanding the sidewalk problem.

^ Even though the hearing was only for Phase I of the entire project, the issues raised seem very surmountable.

Quote:
Councilwoman Theresa Lafer suggested blocking the sidewalk off from the street somehow, like with shrubbery, to prevent pedestrians from easily walking off the sidewalk into the street. “Shrubbery is easily picked up,” Lafer said. “You have no idea until you watch trees travel in undergraduate hands.”
This made me laugh

Higher resolution renderings as well as sections and floor plans in the planning commission document from yesterday. Sadly it looks looks some value engineering was done on the exterior materials (compared to the renderings posted a few months back).
