Reader Survey: Fifth and Race

There's currently no proposal at all for the large lot at Fifth and Race (for those of you not sure, we're speaking of the parking lot adjacent to the Millennium Hotel that stretches along Race between Fifth and Sixth). That gives us the opportunity to do our own creative thinking about what should be there. As Grif correctly points out, there's plenty "to do" downtown (I'd add Music Hall and the CAC to his list), but there's always room for more. In no particular order, what would you build at Fifth and Race if the decision were yours?

  • Condos
  • A grocery store
  • A movie theatre (the kind that would show Rambo)
  • An "indie" movie theatre like the Esquire
  • A bowling alley/nightclub like the former Jillian's
  • A really big Chipotle (sorry, that's just me fighting my own substance abuse issues)
  • A gym or health club

Of those, the condos are my least favorite. My thought is that the space should be either (a) something that the neighborhood residents need/want; (b) something that will draw people downtown; or (c) some combination of the two.
