It almost looks like the Universal Holdings company owns the old Emmons site now. It would be nice to see him build something like that. If done in conjunction with redevelopment of the 1100 block of 4th Ave, it would likely be a hug success. Hopefully either a developer will take the incentive or the city will turn their eyes to that area once the ABC contest is over. It would REALLY be a help to the Old Main Corridor.

According to tax records, Universal Holdings has owned that lot for the past several years.

Hmm. I think Marcia Lucas owned it for a while and was somewhat unsure of what to do there. She had talked about putting some type of memorial up. I wonder when she sold it?

It would be nice to see someone build a new building there to say the least. Maybe after the Vacant Building Registry gets established, they can start a Vacant Lot Registry with fees.

It was sold in December 2010, so it's been out of her hands since I moved here.

The 1100 block of 4th Ave is an absolute mess. It would be nice to redevelop it to connect the Old Main Corridor to the rest of 4th Ave

Yes it would be nice. I think Marshall Reynolds owns most of the offending side of that block. He seems to be selling off some of his previously owned assets so who knows, maybe we'll get lucky with that block as well. That would be a great space for a new large scale building targeted toward students, grad students and young professionals.

The neat thing about Huntington is that you can move away and return ten years later and not much is changed. After living there 20 years and moving south in 2012, I've noticed very little improvement. Well, except for Marshall putting up a couple more new buildings.
