Day 5 - "The Tower" / by AE Stagge

You saw it on the first page, and those of us in the area have lived with it blighting our landscape for more than 7 years. This is the project originally called Kenwood Towne Place. You can read some of the gory details here, but the mismanaged $175 million project cost some people their businesses, and others were charged with federal crimes.

This night shot shows the lights are on, and that's the good news. Construction has recently gotten back underway and the new owners have grand plans for the newly named "Kenwood Collection".

Now let's see how the powers-that-be accommodate the increased traffic volume from thousands of additional workers and customers. 

We'll revisit this site many times in the coming months to track the progress of construction and the consequences of same.
