Earlier this month I posted an image of the micro-park, located at Washington Ave & Tucker Blvd, to Twitter & Facebook.  My caption was “Construction fencing up around pocket park Tucker & Washington Ave, plants & retaining walls removed.”

To fresh your memory, let’s go back a few months. My subject was the Arch from the 2009 All-Star game looking very shabby, thankfully it’s now gone.

Some thought the building owner wanted to extend their private parking lot toward Washington Ave. A building resident said the owner wants to build a patio for a future restaurant tenant.

You’ll recall five years ago the ground floor was occupied by a nightclub:

No restaurant has been named, but this could be very good for the area.  This land is privately owned, though some may say an easement was created over the years.
