I wasn’t able to get a pic, but they have poured the second floor now and working toward the 3rd.

Avli's taking shape nicely. The part that intrigues me about this building is the materials. The project could be really nice if the materials pan out.

YES. Digging all of this work going on in Inglewood, used to live on 9th Ave on the next block down from this. Looking at the Hose and Hound now, I know it might be a stretch, but getting rid of some or all of the surface parking in from in favour of patio space or a parklet would be ideal.

Maybe a patio this big?

That bar would become a city-wide attraction if they turned their parking lot into a patio. I've never been there, so I don't know it's current status, but a lot of old school restaurant/bar owners cling so tightly to free parking that it might require a change of ownership to get them to consider ditching the parking lot.

Also the idea of a bar with free parking has always disturbed me. Of all businesses, bars should be the last place that offers incentives for patrons to drive.
