This is a great opportunity to save a significant portion of this historic structure. The portico is beautiful and includes excellent stone carvings that are too expensive to duplicate in modern buildings. The park could be created relatively inexpensively since the City already owns the site and the existing portico is well preserved. Vandalism would not be a problem at this highly visible corner. The park would be an attractive Gateway to the Edgewater neighborhood and could be used for outdoor performances, a farmers market, and informal meeting area.
