"Tim- the viaducts are an interesting option, and like you mentioned, could be useful in keeping the rain out during our monsoon seasons in the summer. Having it on 3rd west was great for exposure, and we might lose some of that by bringing it…"

RECAP: 1/28/14 Granary District Coffee Klatch

The first klatch of the new year was again focused mostly on Granary Row Season 2.

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!

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.

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.

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.
