UPDATE: I guess a building permit mysteriously got posted yesterday late. Not sure if it was laying in a contractor’s tool box up until this point or what. Funny how these things work.

I’m still getting more details, but I found out last night that this historic building downtown had tenants complaining because of the mess, they also noticed NO permits for demolition and remodeling. The City’s Building Services department may also be investigating.

The worst part about it is this developer has a track record of this kind of funny business. Some people never learn.

It will be interesting to hear what is really going on.

    A couple of years ago, there was some major construction done in the Sports & Entertainment District without any permits until the very end…..#scofflaw

    The rules and laws are really only intended for The Little People in this town.
    But, the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the elite, well-moneyed and gentrified shall not be impinged. At all.
    Those in the elite class have even been so noble as to fund an art piece to properly separate their ambitions from those of The Little People.

    Guilty! I did work in my home without permit process. The city makes it difficult with fees and inspections. They have no record keeping and can’t prove whether or not you did something. They have no way to enforce codes because they (per ordinance) can’t take you to court and force actions. You do not have to let them in your home. They’ll show up if you do something outside but they have no authority. Taunt them as trespassers. It’s fun and patriotic because they openly deny you access to the courts via their irrelevant unenforceable judicial ordinance.

    I believe developers have learned from citizens that the city is an irritating harmless small dog you kick away and drop kick over the moon if they’re persistent.

    The empty gap in the Arc is what we get

    Legend has it, that the “gap” will be filled when the railroad yard is developed, the bunker ramp has an adjacent complex, the siding is fixed, multitudes splash indoors, and the high speed trains make it to Brandon. But until then, the pagans will dance in unison around its two bases in hopeful chant void of any true leadership or direction other than what comes from a keystone cop mentality.

    Who’s going to climb the Arc to take down the tied together tennis shoes? Is the Arc a feature for drone competition flying over and under? Is it a new way for kids to fall from into the river and drown? Fences and concertina wire around either base?
