Construction Junction

Some big changes on our little 900 block of Ludington Street! Our neighboring building, which had been leaning precariously to the right and had been condemned, was torn down over the past weekend!

Now you see it:


Now you don't:


This was all the fine, delicate work of Brunette & Son, Inc. It requires a steady hand to pluck a building out from between two others, and they managed to do it with no damage to our building and only superficial damage to its other neighbor (which it was directly leaning against). Plus, the laid down some topsoil and seeded it with grass!

We don't know what the future plans for the lot are; a lot of people are throwing around the idea of a pocket park, which would be awesome! But, as far as I know, no one is taking concrete steps to make that happen. I'd also be down for another, more structural sound building there too, so who knows?
