Looking forward to this. Wasn't Dickinson Edge/University Lofts supposed to include market rate?

It technically does, haha. Still, as a young professional that is well past the college life, I don't want to be in the same building as undergraduates. The notion that Dickinson Lofts would gain traction with YPs/millennials was a stretch to begin with. I don't think the market-rate housing is occupied in there currently, though I could be wrong.

I have a dumb question: if market rate is lower than what students traditionally pay then what keeps students from just filling up the market rate apartments?

Nothing - in fact landlords can't discriminate in renting to undergraduates or not; if they want to rent the market-rate spaces they can.

Very excited! Look forward to seeing the announcement. I'm guessing this would be in the area of that historic house they are trying to get someone to move. We need more market rate housing going forward.

Taft Family Ventures' new downtown project will target homebuyers - Daily Reflector

I can’t figure out what lot they are referring to. The only thing bordered by Reade, Evans, and Dickinson is the library.

Adjacent to the bankruptcy court, I suppose? Corner of Reade and Dickinson, but not Evans...

Adjacent to the bankruptcy court. The only other lot fitting the description is the Pitt Library parking lot and we would have heard news of the land sale.

Also announcing today: S Greene Street will be undergoing a road diet from at least Dickinson Avenue (could be more, forget) wherein the westernmost north bound lane will be reclaimed as a 7'-0 parking space and 5'-0 bicycle lane (cross-section). City staff recognizes that S Greene is 'overconstructed' in this thoroughfare and is considering further changes in the Uptown area (though they likely can't happen on the same time frame).

The road is entirely city-owned, the road diet only requires thermoplastic paint, so the work should be complete by the end of April.

Finally, the city is exploring the reduction of speed limits on key roads in Uptown/student grid to 25mph, although most already are. Key avenues are:

Reade Circle east of Cotanche to 1st street being reduced to 25mph;
3rd Street from Reade Circle to Meade Street reduced to 25;
1st Street from Pitt St. to Reade Circle reduced to 25.

Further study needed on:

S Pitt Street to 5th Street,
S Greene St to 5th Street, and
Reade Circle 5th Street to Cotanche.
