There are only twelve condos for sale at Gold Street Lofts because the Venture folks finally gave up and converted one of the three floors to offices. The building's been finished for three years and is still less than half full. I don't know if this is optimism so much as good old-fashioned spin...

Re: Gold Lofts. I mean, come on. Who is going to pay $300,000 for an UNFINISHED loft right next to homeless central, a.k.a. The Alvarado Transportation Center? It also happens to be right on the homeless migration route--homeless folks migrate from the shelter north of Mountain to the free meal places and the Salvation Army and the homeless mission every day. I don't have anything against homeless people, mind you, I'm just thinking that the people with that kind of money wouldn't necessarily be eager to live there. I understand that the developers were throwing their weight behind a revitalization effort down there, but they did it with a tin ear. How about creating AFFORDABLE housing first and then introducing the high dollar stuff?

Re: recycling incentive program: Oh, so I, who have been recycling everything under the sun, but who will never get a bin, gets screwed on the incentives? Hmmmpf. I think the guy who picks my recycling hates me, too, because he always tosses my plastic recycles tub as far as he can into the yard after he picks up my recycling.

"Or is there some other financial reason builders thought these would sell in ABQ? "

Four words: housing bubble and subprime mortgages.
