Here’s a ghost-dotted sketch of what may soon inhabit that empty lot at the northwest corner of W. 11th and Nicholson streets; Adolfo Pesquera notes over on VBX that the project’s developers may break ground soon. (That’s both figuratively and literally — there’s a fair bit of concrete and asphalt removal involved in the job.) The medical-themed project is catty-corner from the 2-story building already housing the Heights Clinic (along with a Stewart Title office). There should be some kind of grassy buffer between the 31,010-sq.-ft. building and and the rail-turned-trail Heights hike & bike path running along Nicholson to the east, as well as a bit of open to the west toward recently opened Presidio:
Presidio itself, which has taken over the building from which Java Java Cafe previously decamped, sits across from Morelos Auto Repair (located where Chana’s House of Pottery and Things had a couple-year run, back at the turn of the decade). Down 11th in the other direction, past a handful of townhouses, Hoity Toity Pet Grooming & Daycare faces off with gas-station-turned-car-dealership The Station.
