With the start of the demolition process for One Park Vista and the hubbub over a prospective design for the tower at Liberty and Fourth St, the look of the south side of Fourth St from Marshall to Liberty will be spectacular in a few years. From the Mellow Mushroom restaurant, the street level of the Nissen building and its discussed retail clients, the Contempo furniture building, the One Park Vista building, the park and finally the towers at Liberty and Fourth, this will be a gorgeous stretch of real estate for Winston.

Yet, there is a glaring hole here.

At Fourth and Cherry, there is the Legal Aid building which is a well kept up brick building which does well where it is located. It is the next two buildings that give me angst. One is the well known Dill Pickle lunch restaurant, the other a vacant building adjacent to the Contempo store building. These will become eyesores when the rest of this development is complete. Not sure if the owners of the restaurant own their own building but as they are there perhaps they can tap into some of the restuarant funding the city has put aside to at leastupgrade the facade of the building to be more in keeping with the new development. Recreation Billards down the street did a renovation that was first class and something that the Dill Pickle can aspire to. Perhaps the city may have to take the initiative here and do the job itself if the building owners will not do it.

As for the other building, does anyone know who owns it and what purpose it may serve in the future?

Everytime I ride downtown I always think at what an eye-sore the Dill is and how one could fix it up. I was thinking maybe a new tower could locate there and they (Dill Pickle) could locate to the bottom floor in a street level retail parcel. But, that may just be wishful thinking. :rolleyes:
