Our buddy Shawn Shillington over at Austinisttalks about the implications of Perry Lorenz, Robert Knight, and Knight Real Estate Corp.'s decision to sell off more than a dozen acres of land near Downtown, on Rainey Street. Don't miss the Flickr slide show he links.
It will be a travesty if City Council, in the throes of public hand-wringing over ad hoc zoning decisions, allows Rainey to be developed without a fair, equitable, and established formula for building affordability into the area. Get cracking!
