It could result in higher salaries too, because the overhead will be much lower.

It can also result in higher salaries since companies are paying for the talent not talent based on a location. I have worked from home my entire 14 years though the 1st 8 was significant time deployed out to projects. My salary is independent of where I live.

They may want it but do need to earn it. Staff I work with is never here for my projects, those that are newer do have a harder time keeping focus and on track, some also take advantage since it's like a kid in a candy store if their 1st job. Not all, but enough that I like newer staff to work in one of our other offices where they feel they are being supervised. After a few months I can judge their work output so if they were to go remote I can tell if they are slacking from home.

Anyone have recent pics of this or know of a webcam? I haven't been around there in a while. That area will be so much improved if/when those other planned buildings behind it are also built.

Interesting read and the comments at the end are from some that watched it happened, so they are interesting reads. The Hill never recovered from the rioting/looting/burning. The Civic Arena is used as some excuse however.

It's also my understanding there will be a park over the highway. They're calling it a cap but to me a cap is supposed to cover a distant of road, not just a small, park sized portion.

I also wish a high-rise would be built here. Something over 250 ft would be nice. It's just a parking lot, or actually I'm not even sure if people are allowed to park there.
