Here we go again!The whiners are out in force to vent their spleens about a project,that is not exactly the Empire State Building,being put in their neighborhood?Where are those folks from exactly?Hooterville?All those nuts are probably clones of Shannie Duff!Trying to be hep,but only their ignorance comes shining through as they clamor for attention with their "beautiful views of the harbor"being spoiled BS.Only in Newfoundland would people call a 10 story building a "skyscraper",or a 5 story building a tower!But maybe I'm wrong on this one.At least I hope I am, because all the parties are ready to go through with it,except for a minority of fruitcakes.One guy on here went as far as saying that ,and I paraphrase"anything they build now will be falling apart in 20 yrs when the oil revenues dry up and the city will be left with basically,a ghetto'.So I guess you should stop building anything in the entire city and let it turn into a wasteland.What a powerful thinker!Where do such men come from?The Waterford!

Yes, and so you should be concerned... don't believe a word what they tell you at city hall as all they are concerned down there is taking care of themeselves and their freinds with $$$... in another 15-20 years once all the baby boomers are ten toes up and the oil has dried up see how many delapidated and unoccupied dbuildings there will be then... this is a prime example of how Newfoundlanders saturate the market with everything that is developed here... why not put up yet another grocery and/or liquor store... the downtown area is too small to sustain what is going on down here...

A skywalk!! Now that is a FANTASTIC idea for that area! Hope you are reading Mr.DeFlorio. Now see, the citizens are listening and assisting. Team Effort here!

When will they want a Skywalk crossing over Duckworth St. We know it wont be long before the hotel guest wont want to duck thru traffic there at that corner.

You can't do anything here in St. John's without some NIMBY complaining about it.

Yup it's called Progress alright! It would be a great building for Ms.Hayward to photograph since she is a provincially know photographer..... Since Mr.DeFlorio is so willing to sit with the livyers of the neighborhood and work with them, perhaps Ms.Hayward can turn this into a business venture and strike a deal to do the photography of said new development for the marketing of selling the condominium units. To us Townies who live out of the downtown core this stuff is too foolish to even talk about! They choose to live down in that guts of the city; ADAPT!

Would you rather have a strip bar, a dilapidated burned out building or a state of the art condo building built in your neighborhood ? Which do you figure will improve your property value let alone the view from your window. Truly there are some people that you will never satisfy!

I would be more concerned that some of the buildings down there are going to fall down while im there. That whole area is a dump period, or what Shannie calls heritage. If you dont like it, move and try getting over your self.
