Lots of questions are being asked....

  • What will the pocket park be like?

  • Who will be the commercial tenants?

  • When will the building and park be done?

I've been talking with lots of people...

  • Clark Gassen and Jake Schaffer, the building developers... 

  • Patrick Sarver, the landscape architect in charge of designing the pocket park...

  • Geoff Sudit, the orthodontist who will be leasing the largest commercial space...

  • Kim Hanson, who will be opening a "high-end pet-products" and grooming store in one other space...

  • Jeff Stites -- LHiNC Board Member who's spearheading a way to find the answers to these questions:

    • How do we compare the paver/concrete options for the pocket park ground surfacing?

    • Will the pocket park be greatly enhanced by surfacing with pervious pavers rather than scored concrete?

    • Should LHiNC contribute funds to (help) pay for said enhancement?

The developer says the as-yet-unnamed Pocket Park should be completed around the end of July.

       {I still like "Brenda  Park" -- after esteemed writer/memoirist/feminist Brenda Ueland, who lived in Linden Hills.}

Stay  tuned --

       I'm going to try to write once a week -- with news as it develops... and with interviews with the new tenants...

          Geoff the orthodontist is a local guy who's developed an Invisalign specialty... and Kim has a French Bulldog named Audrey. . .

NEXT WEEK -- A detailed analysis of the difference between Pervious Pavers and Scored Concrete -- I'll have photos of both, a report on the environmental concerns regarding Pervious over Concrete, and hopefully, some info about how much one might cost over the other.
