    The A&W is now permanently closed there. It's too bad because a: That was my go to A&W for breakfast and b: They were going to have a nice patio fronting onto 7th Ave which could have helped traffic.

    Stumbled across this in my 'Nextdoor' feed. This lot has been empty for a few years now after the initial commercial (?) development stalled.

    Too bad the commercial portion isn't going to be a green roof (or maybe it is, just doesn't look like it). With the southern exposure and residents looking down on it that could have been really nice. Is there anything the city can do to encourage developers to incorporate them?
