I really wish the city would encourage developers to incorporate murals into their projects. Here's a great example of where that would have really enhanced the public view. Instead it's a drab, grey wall ion the NE corner.

Did the 2018 "not-for-profit" daycare deal in this building actually work-out..?

I don't see any obvious daycare listed with that address today in 2022.


If one selects this area on google and then searches for 'childcare' no facility comes up for this building.

The only post-'new building' permit for a fit-out was for a Wendy's.

The Tweet to which you linked also referred to an onsite park...............

@Red Mars will need to get us an up to date photo; but from Google............it must be this postage stamp (do we laugh or cry?)

I totally agree. Every time I pass by that building I always think that a mural or even a living/green wall would be prefect for that mass of blank brick wall on the ground floor. What a missed opportunity.

Also, the rental building across the street to the south (Liberty House) was originally supposed to be a mirror image of this building which I thought would make for a really nice symbolic gateway or entrance to Liberty Village.
