Rotunda Edges Forward


So the Rotunda project seems to indeed be moving forward. (Here's a grainy photo of the proposed layout from a year ago.) There's a task force meeting scheduled for Monday, October 22nd. (Hawker's not 100% clear who's on the task force and what authority they have, but the members seem to be made up of an appropriate group of local business and community leaders.)

Word is that a general contractor has been retained for the project (and he/she will be introduced) and that "design refinements" and "construction details" will be announced at the meeting.

I'll keep you posted as I get more news.

Until then, please amuse yourself with the video from The Rotunda development website. There's all these shots of Baltimore in the beginning, and NOT ONE of them actually shows Hampden. Nice.

Seems like the time for Indy Hampden still feels right.

Go Rotunda!

I'd be thrilled to see something in Hampden, which was promised, actually work out. Since I bought here last year, I have seen more empty houses, plenty of businesses close, the Main Streets initiative die out, the building at 34th and Keswick stay vacant and the Rotunda project stalled.

Sometimes it feels like things are getting worse, not better.

It's getting to the point where I just want successful businesses in Hampden, independent or no.

Huh? What about the all the currently successful businesses all over Hampden?
