Opus West Corporation plans to build one hundred or so upscale condos at the site of the empty Firestone Tire building at sixteenth and L streets. The added housing would boost the city's effort to bring more residents to the central city. Such moves are aimed at speeding redevelopment in the city and providing more business for struggling stores and restaurants in the area. Opus is working on closing a deal for the site with the building's owner, the Wurster family, say sources close to the transaction. Other contending developers for the site include Tony Gionnoni, Mike Heller and reportedly David Taylor. Opus envisions a midrise building with condos above street level shops and restaurants.For the Business Journal, this is Mark Larson
