The best posts usually originate in our comments. To give appreciation to our amazing (and sometimes angry) commenters we feature their broad strokes of wisdom in a tidy comment roundup.
1) Roller Disco In An Old Circuit City? Totally Possible "generally speaking, a circuit city would not qualify as 'big-box'. office uses, mid size retailers specializing in merchandise of the neighborhoods ethnicity/demographics, and demising for multi tenant use work best. the one off uses listed are novelty and may or may not last for any length of time. and a church should never EVER occupy retail space. they cant pay rent and may be indicative of a distressed center or owner."
2) BikeNappers "Sounds like tensions between the Midnight Ridaaaazzzzz and their arch enemies, the Kings of Huffy, are ramping up. There's going to be a knife fight outside of the Silverlake Lounge tonight!"
3) SignGate: Eastern Columbia Fears the Ugliness Beneath "I realize this might be cost-prohibitive for Kor, but why not work with a local gallery or other arts group to program these retail spaces? It would be better than these (granted, not-unattractive) mural/ads. Kor essentially does this kind of arts group and non-profit group programing with its empty square footage at Barker Block. At Eastern the spaces have even more visibility to the community."
