James Alfandre replied to Jacob Morrill's discussion Anyone know the story of the Ed's Place restaurant building?
"Hey Jacob, Sorry I missed this. The property owner has engaged a developer to redevelop the property into residential and retail. The timeline might be a couple of years out though. Hope this helps! - James"

Thanks, James! I'm glad to see you guys are still fighting to good fight! I was just having a conversation with a fellow-filmmaker the other night about "tenant-driven development", and was thinking about you guys.

Thanks James! Glad to see you are back as well! I was driving by the cement plant last week and thinking of you. Let me know what I can do to help. ~Andrew

James, for sure I am interested in another tour. I think next week would probably work best for those interested, a weekday morning? Let me know your availability and I'll ask around. Hope your holiday was enjoyable!
At 4:16pm on November 30, 2010, Keri Williams said…
I've asked around and it seems like Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. would be great. Weather permitting, of course. I think there will be about 4-5 people. Does that work?
At 4:34pm on November 30, 2010, Keri Williams said…
Thank you we'll see you then!!

Hey James-- looking forward to the tour tomorrow morning. We'll see you in front of the pickle factory at 9 a.m.
At 10:55am on December 7, 2010, Keri Williams said…
Hey James-- I can't make it this morning (long story) but Bre should be there, and maybe a few others. I'll catch up with you another day--

James, I'm quite looking forward to the walk and chat tomorrow.  Thanks for putting it together.
At 1:11am on February 27, 2011, Jesse Ward said…
James, I won't make it to the tour tomorrow, but you can plan on me for the Thursday meeting. I took a gander around there the other night and am excited to hear about the vision.
