Well, Portage isn't THAT bad of an area.. Trust me, I did some surveying work around Higgins/Main, and it is bad enough driving through there, nevermind getting out and doing a job there.
Plus Portage has some decent girls walking around (only when its very bright out, haha)
But if you think about it, that location is right in the middle of everything, you would think the land would be worth a little.
Its an eyesore.. It'll be good to see it gone.
