The Broadway Beast Is Back!

The outrageously expensive, technologically unnecessary, and entirely developer-profit-driven Broadway subway to nowhere is back for another round of propaganda/sales meetings.

There will be “open houses” as follows:

  • June 24: 10am-2:00pm at 511 W. Broadway
  • June 27: 4:00pm-7:00pm at 511 W. Broadway
  • June 28: 4:00pm-7:00pm at 511 W. Broadway

You can read the City’s propaganda at their website.

I wrote my own thoughts on this quite a while ago, and do not see any reason to change my opinion that the subway is a disaster designed solely to feed huge for-profit condo towers along Broadway to the detriment of transportation throughout the city.

There are far better ways to deal with our transit issues than a $4 billion (or much more) hole in the ground, but I bet these “open houses” will not be a forum for that debate.

    New small tower at Oak (southwest corner) had to leave a basement space for a subway station exit.

    Even far out at Alma and Broadway developments are advertizing a subway stop in their plans to convert corner strip malls and ex-gas stations into tiny closet-like condo towers few can afford.

    The development, and the two year cut and cover build will ruin Broadway business and the like for many decades.
