Do you think downtown Lawrence needs more apartments and/or a hotel/retail space like the proposed Ninth and New Hampshire streets development?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 27, 2012
“More people in the area for that building means more business for everyone. I think the people who oppose are just resistant to change. It (would be) aesthetically pleasing and have an upscale feel.”
“I think it’s a good thing because options are always a good thing, for apartments or whatever.”
“I don’t think so — I think the cost would be too high (for area people to use the building), and parking’s already not great.”
“I don’t think we need more downtown apartments — we need cultural developments instead.”
