the video would be so much more exciting if there was something actually planned for the site.

Wait a minute, you mean that's not where they're gonna put the new Ikea that Mayor Brown was talking about???

Damn I gotta stop skimming headlines in this city... seems I'm all confused...

there is..a shovel ready plot (aka parking);)

That building was hideous either way and is no loss.

Hopefully something goes up soon complimenting the new architecture in the medical corridor and not the single story cinder block crap that went up near main...
