"Hey Lawrence, you didn't say yes...but your 'no' couldn't have been were showing so much skin...clearly you were looking for it...asking for it. You just wanted something less aggressive. Something that makes you feel like we care. You are so needy and desperate. We just want to show you how much we love you!"

"Now bend over some more because we're not done."

Were architects without actual architecture degrees consulted? Has drainage been adequately planned?

Downtown Lawrence will start looking like every other suburban town in Johnson County. Doesn't originality count for anything anymore? What about some architecture that reveals the elegant past of Lawrence with the new amenities inside. How I hate cookie cutter buildings...sigh....

Great project. Bland/dated architecture. I don't blame the developers or the architects. Our city is stuck in the past when it comes to architecture. The only way to get something built in this city is to appease the ho hum aesthetics of the populous.

This is terrible. Get someone else in to give us a smaller, more esthetic building.

The cell towers were a Fritzel & Co bait & switch, not F.M.

Where are the cell phone towers going to be located?

They should build it taller. The neighbors are going to complain no matter what they do, so lets enhance downtown and build it taller.

How about some outdoor patio space? Or some additional places to sit? I think the building looks OK, but the space around is just dull.

Looks nice. Glad the developers want to build downtown instead of in the suburbs. The neighbors should have a voice, but not a veto; hope the City Commission looks at the interests of the whole town and approve this.
