DMN is reporting that Weirs is exploring options for development of their large parcels on and near Knox.
Nothing that interesting but it looks like Weitzman is showing the vacant spaces created long ago when Katana, KT cross fit, Sur la Tab, rio room, etc vacated. I just wish they would do something with these vacant buildings and lots. Core samples have been taken here and parking has been blocked by concrete curbs and chains. Not sure what they plan to do now. These buildings have been vacant for over a year now. Royal Blue? Stumptown coffee? At one point, renderings and concept sketches were released showing apartments and retail coming in 2017. Looks like it will be more zombie buildings for now. Back from the dead? We’ll see.
As first reported here a month ago, Aesop skincare is opening on Knox and new signage confirms it will be opening in one of the spaces created from the former Chili’s location.
If you’ve come here to see why we support Philip Kingston for District 14 city council, here’s the simplest reason: neighborhoods first. Philip Kingston has repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to go against the political establishment in the interest of our neighborhoods. Instead of spending his time helping people who don’t live in our district, he focuses his efforts on improving our neighborhoods for the benefit of those who live here, who work here and who visit here! While outside groups from Highland Park and Trinity tollway advocates fund a smear campaign, Kingston has worked to make the Knox Neighborhood better. We’re thrilled that Knox Street will be getting wider sidewalks, new signals, better crosswalks, a turn lane and angled parking.

There will be a Knox Park Resident meet up at Cafe Madrid tomorrow (May 3) at 6:30pm. AJ Aguirre is heading up the effort to put a neighborhood council together to represent the interests of local residents. Be sure to check his instagram account @knoxparkre for more info. Cafe Madrid has generously offered to host so be sure to stop by. It will be a great opportunity to meet neighbors and discuss issues that affect Knox neighborhood residents. See you there!
Another street diet for our neighborhood has been proposed to reduced transient traffic and make the area more pedestrian friendly!
