A Mighty Wind

The concrete facade of the building housing New Hope International Church (Sheridan and Gunnison) is all over the sidewalk today. We're guessing the heavy winds last night caused the damage. Wow! We hope no one was injured when it all came tumbling down.


  1. Helen should be rushing in with a sackful of TIF dollars to help repair this any time, now.

  2. ... as long as the reconstruction work only occurs between 3 and 5 a.m. ;-)

  3. I live next door to that building, and wow, that was quite a noise.

    I can't help but think that the problem was exacerbated by the big dent in the northbound lane outside. Every time a bus or big truck drives by and hits the dent - which is some sort of water/sewer line cutout that wasn't properly repaired - our whole building shakes. That can't help the structural integrity of that building after tens of thousands of times.
