Where did the street go? And the dentist's office? And the monster children yelling obscenities at each other during lunch? Gone! Admittedly, this looks a bit fortress-like at the moment, but with the exquisite lattice up top and a garden in front of it, great things are bound to happen, soon.

The view from the sidewalk improves daily, but it's still too early to really get a sense of the whole. Imagine lattice in all the empty spaces, plus seriously-shortened posts with copper caps.
