Here is a photo I took on July 18th at the future site of the Great American Building.

You guys are lucky. Is that the 700-something foot tall one?

In Cleveland they were planning on building an 1,100+ foot building, I think it was for Ameritrust. Something went wrong so there not building it anymore though, sadly.

I have a certain affinity for that parking garage. But since I'm no longer that silly young woman ... ... Let 'er rip.

why would anyone, ever, under any circumstances, have an affinity for a parking garage?

Very simple although perhaps "fondness" is a better word.

I had a fondness for the same garage and for the garage at Riverfront Stadium because they were about the only two that I understood how to get in and out of.

I'm not personally excited about the new construction. While it will be interesting to have a new record building in the metro area, I'm disappointed with the design and the fact that there's no upmost-level observation deck, as things currently appear.

Oh, it's a long, alcohol-soaked story involving the WEBN fireworks and a nice young guy ...

Ha! For me, that's the garage on Vine Street, next to where the Enquirer used to be. For the first few years I lived in the area, that was the only place I'd park when I went downtown, because it was just a turn or two off I-71 and hard for me to get lost.

Now that you mention it, that was a nice garage, too.

I worked at the Enquirer building for a while and I could get in and out of it pretty well.

It will certainly change our skyline - make it more interesting but I don't understand why we need more office space downtown. There seems to be plenty of vacant buildings.
