When I think about findlay market it kills me that none of those units about the market are occupied or even being worked on. Think how much more viable the entire area, let alone the market, would be if just a few tenants were there!

Streetcar service that connected those residential units to the services and amenities found Downtown would sure be terrific. The Findlay Market/Brewery District area can not and should not try to replicate the dining, shopping and other items available Downtown, but residents should be able to have quick reliable access there that isn't through a car.
