Catch up on the status of the massive Merrill Gardens senior living housing project going up at the Corner of 4th and East Main Street. The 140-room project will bring a lot of new residents downtown. That is an excellent thing. It is alluring that these new citizens will be active new consumers and diners in our downtown core, quickly becoming a food and entertainment destination.
The downside is the mass of this building which the architects indicate will blend “seamlessly” into the surrounding neighborhoods and older buildings. That remains to be seen, but it is not a bad-looking building. From the air, we could see how things are going and how this scale will look.
