In cryptic I-know-something-you-don’t-know fashion, Arena Authority Chairman Jim Host tells LEO Weekly that Mayor Jerry Abramson is preparing to announce details about a new development near the downtown arena site.
“The mayor is going to make an announcement Friday about a new development that nobody even knows about that’s going to happen close to the arena,” says Host. “They’re having a press conference at 10:30 on Friday morning. He called me about it himself.”
No word from the mayor’s office yet, but we’ll keep you posted. (SK)
The mayor’s office just issued a press release confirming Host’s intel was indeed accurate. Mayor Abramson will discuss the latest downtown development — Whiskey Row Lofts — at the corner of Second and Main streets above Bearno’s Pizza tomorrow morning.
