Underutilitzed lot on Champagne
Half way along Champagne Avenue is this drastically underutilized lot behind a 1960's-era apt building. The lot is used for surface parking, and is not a desirable long-term use of valuable urban land. Given that it has street frontage along Champagne, I expect someday the owners will apply to relocate the parking underground and build condos -- either apartment condos or townhouse condos -- along the street. Depending on the condition of the existing apartments, they may even demolish the building and start anew.
