Developing the Empty Lot beside Logan Bar & Grill?

I saw some construction equipment in the lot beside Logan Bar and Grill this morning. The lot has been empty forever. Just wondering if anyone knows if they're expanding their outside space or if something is happening there. It's the space between the bar and the Subway restaurant next door.

Sorry for the bad quality photo.

  • Thanks for schooling us a bit in useful places to do that kind of research rather than just posting the results of it, Jim - always appreciate having better knowledge of the tools we have (besides Google) at our disposal!

  • Chris, I think you might be right. I was thinking that as I passed by the front last night .. in the morning I'd only passed by on the ally side and forgot the front was covered with structures for the maintenance work.

    And thanks, Jim, too, for all that research!
