Looks like the HMDA plans to purchase the Flint Pigment property. I wonder if there are specific plans for it? Maybe they got tired of waiting for the ACF property?

I'm interested to read the findings of the environmental assessment once it is complete. I've heard rumors that the former BASF/Flint Group property has some pretty nasty chemicals stored on site (at least when it was open) and potential contamination issues.

It would be nice to see some other type of manufacturing company or business make use of the property.

Flats on 4th building to be torn down.

Call me a dreamer, but one of the next big things that Huntington is waiting for is a high rise office building (something that can go down as the tallest building in the state). This would spur other development. It would be great to hear about and then follow the completion of a NEW 30 story mixed use building in downtown Huntington. All of our taller buildings were built in the 1920's!! We are past due...

A mall/retail, hotel, dorms, apartments, dining, office space, ...could all be things that could take up floors.

Just a very rough idea...original thought was to put this on the site of the old Emmons Apt Building.

Sounds like a good idea to me! Let's hope some good development comes out of this for sure.

I also saw that the old 7-11 was being torn down on 5th Ave. That would be a great place for a new to the area fast food place, something like a Panda Express! Hopefully something other than a parking lot comes to that location for sure.

Would be great to see a 30 story building anywhere in WV but Huntington is way overdue.

If we're talking about replacing either the Coal Exchange Building or The Prichard, then I'm all for it. Even if it means they're replaced with buildings with fewer floors but better quality than now.

I know that the Prichard is listed on the Historic Register but I think it's beyond hope.

I'd rather see the existing buildings and properties renovated and developed, along with the roads and sidewalks repaired and looking nice. Not too mention, seeing the abandoned houses torn down and replaced with new housing stock or community spaces likes parks and recreation spaces.
