^Good catch. I didn't see that the new space was its own subsmission separate from the demo request. I guess it really was just time to pull the plug on the old building, even with no new use lined up.

Also, the plans for the new development on East 105th suggest the "future park" that will replace the gas station building might be more than just another lawn, even if that's all the demo approval promises. Good chance it's just rendering bluster, but hopefully it can be turned into a useful space.  The demo request also suggests there are USTs and soil contamination (no surprise), so demo and clean up are probably the only practical option.

Over the last couple months there has been more demolition on these agendas than new construction.

To emphasize Mendo's point, look at this list of Design-Review cases for

Northeast --
Southeast --
East --

The other five design districts all have many more renovations and some new construction than demolitions. The east side, except for the Euclid Corridor (which includes UC), continues to empty out.

Attention Mr. Litt:  Greenspace is not architecture.  It is a lack thereof.
