We got a tip from a reader about a hole in the ground at 5th and Washington Ave., so we headed over there to investigate. When we got there, we found so much construction activity that we weren’t even sure what hole they were referring to.
Recently demoed house
Recently completed triple-wide mixed use building
A newly dug hole, next to a newly built home
A newish mixed-use building. Space for rent.
Northwest corner of 5th and Washington Sts. Four stories with an elevator!
Slightly different view of the same building
For a stretch of Washington Ave. that doesn’t seem terribly desirable, the amount of construction on this block is surprising to say the least. We don’t imagine that people are scurrying to live as close as possible to Southward Public Housing Projects? Well, maybe everyone just wants easier access to delicious pastries and Pho at New World Plaza.
