Nesting in Limbo
Nest Furnishings may look like it's going out of business, but it might take a while. The store is located at 680 E. Colorado Blvd. on the southeast corner of Colorado and El Molino, where plans for the new IDS Playhouse Plaza building project have stalled.
The proposed building apparently exceeds city size requirements. The City Council initially waived those requirements but a group of residents, including former City Council member Sid Tyler, filed a lawsuit that has put the project on hold. The Council created a committee to review ways to bring the project down to size and I'm sure we'll hear more about it soon.
In the meantime, there's a wide variety of stock roosting at Nest. The prices are decent. I have no idea how long it'll all be there and I bet the store owners don't, either.
