Dan, that's quite a list. As a former resident of Lexington, I'd like to see some of that happen. I couldn't disagree more though regarding the Financial Center. As someone born in Lexington around the time the big blue building went up, it's a source of pride. When I come home, whether I'm driving or flying, I can't wait for the first sighting of the blue building on the horizon.

It's like the Golden Dome at Notre Dame, or the St. Louis arch - a symbol recognizable from a distance. Lexington is fortunate that another symbol is the beautiful horse farms that surround it (which you see long before the blue building). The two aren't mutually exclusive though.

If you think Lexington will ever get a grocery store downtown without the density that the blue building brings (as well as the new hotel development), then I'm afraid you're going to be disappointed.
