    It looks like the used car lot closed up shop over the weekend. Anyone have any insight to if there’s something going on with this corner?

    Another used car lot? I been driving by that spot for the last 11 years, and it hasn’t changed. The 3 corners of that intersection have to be the biggest waste of real estate in the “Villages”. There was a week or so a while back that the cab company cleared out and I got all excited, but then it came back and I was dissappointed again.

    I cannot agree with this assessment more.

    I always figured the car lot was a front of some sort since I rarely saw anyone coming or going, most cars didn’t have prices listed, and overall it looked sketchy and uninviting. I’ve bought a car from an impound lot off of Ebay once and would never set foot in a place that sketchy looking.

    there were at least a few cars on the lot this afternoon. there was also a woman and child outside the building on the lot. She appeared to be sweeping the pavement.

    In other news, I saw today that 875 Summit is in contract. Here’s hoping that someone puts some love into it:

    Drove by a few times today and there was what looked to be a future taco truck parked in the front of the lot. It also appears that the building is being cleaned/painted so I’m thinking perhaps a new Mexican market and food truck. @geedeck thinks its the taco truck that used to reside in the parking lot by Quality pest control.

    I may have spoken too soon about 5th and Summit. Looks like more random vehicles are appearing and not moving. I did see the taco truck and got excited, but wonder if it might just be broken down/ stored there. Hmm.

    From the Weinland Park blog, it is indeed a food truck!

    Sweet! Hopefully they will work to eventually clean that corner up a bit- maybe take that old chain link fence down.

    I hope there is some sort of retail element as rory mentioned, or possibly a patio of some kind. Seems like a pretty massive lot to have one lonely food truck.

    Regardless, glad to see something new on that corner!

    It won’t be lonely once everyone shows up to eat! I could seriously alternate between Woody & Jo’s and a taco truck.

    Off-topic, but right above that, I see a proposal for a 5-story building at 866 N. Pearl with 26 apartments. This would be just north of the Hub project and I haven’t seen anyone mention it here.
