The Valley Of The Shadow Of Petro Stop...

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

Unlike some Northside projects which seem to take forever, the Gateway Lofts project at the former W. Broadway Petro Stop location is speeding right along. An impressive valley has been dug and foundations are being built in the valley. I have dubbed it "The Valley Of The Shadow of Petro Stop" but I guess "Gasoline Valley" has a nice ring, too. Hopefully, this "urban grand canyon" won't be part of our scenery for too long because, well, it's a big and ugly and made out of snirt.

Residents who live in the area continue to express worries that the multi-unit housing will turn into yet another crappy "project," but also express a cautious optimism that decent management and new buildings might produce something which is relatively nice instead of awful.

We shall see.
