Downtown landlords lowered the rent for three national retail tenants. So why don't they lower the rent for a few local retail tenants?

It`s good they continue to build these archaic dinosaurs from the old paradigm.
In in the coming Renaissance we will disassemble these obsolete buildings to remake Santa Fe anew.
This is good, In future we will need the materials.

These people are living in a fantasy world. The global economic collapse has only just begun. You guys really plan to lose your shirts.
You all could do so much more with your resources to help establish the coming Renaissance, then to squander your assets on old obsolete dark age forms of consumptive expansion.

Some of you are so blind. I feel really bad for you.
You gunna have one helll of a rude awakening. That Taos Bridge is going to be one busy thoroughfare.

a construction project down south that required a certain specific skill level, but nothing extraordinary. Out-of-state bids were were far lower even though those crews needed to stay at motels for the project duration. We would have preferred using the Roswell firm that we were comfortable with, there was no way we could sell the idea of paying half again as much for the same work.

Quoting any of the Branches about commercial real estate is like quoting the fox about the hen-house!! Or should we say the wolf!?

I hate to be doom and gloom, but... The commercial bubble is just getting started. Hopefully I am wrong. I don't recall seeing so many vacancies downtown or down cerrillos rd. A lot of small business owners I've spoken to are not saying good things about continuing forward. We shall see soon enough.

and so where is the ALTERNATIVE AFFORDABLE HOUSING tie in to any of this high-end real estate development? or once again are the locals "real" needs going unaddressed? We need more than places to go that take our money.

The commercial real estate has been an over blow bubble for a long time now. It will pop within the year.Any one in the know knows this eventuality.

Realtors, and Banksters have become minions of death.
They will get tared, and feathered in good time.
I can`t wait to see it happen.

And this attitude, folks, is why we are in a recession.

Outsourcing hurts a local economy. Your cheapskate attitude towards completing your new 'natural market' demonstrates where your priorities lie. And none of them lie with your local community.

clueless if you are responding to me. I don't know the situation with the market.

As I said the preference was for the local firm and I'm not the decisionmaker. A 20% difference would have been a a tough sell, but I could have made the case.

You're the clueless one here. You don't even see what's inherently flawed with the argument you're trying to make. I'll leave that for you to ponder.

Just what downtown Santa Fe needs: a 280-room cheap hotel. Great job.

Give the rest of us a hint because we don't get it either. Would you be able to justify to your boss paying 50% more?

You're missing the point as well. Another church-goer who sleeps through the sermon I'm sure.

A lease is an agreement with terms. Rent is what you pay. But, what was your point?
