What impact do you think the Hobbs Taylor Lofts will have on downtown Lawrence?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 22, 2005
“Hopefully it will help keep downtown strong and vibrant, and spark some additional development in that area.”
“I think there are going to be problems right after it opens, even though they knew they were moving in across the street from a live music venue.”
“I think that there will be a potentially good economic impact on downtown. But there will be a negative impact on the homeless because it will add more pressure to push them out of the area.”
“I’ve actually heard that they might re-do that whole block and get rid of the Bottleneck, which would be a travesty.”
