Lagoon & Girard - 1998

Looking north on Girard Avenue at the Lagoon Avenue intersection in 1998. Note that the building on the left (NW corner) had not yet been renovated into what today is Uptown Tavern & Rooftop. When the building was renovated from being Cheapo, it became the Pickled Parrot and later became Drink.

The Lagoon Cinema was built in 1994/1995 by Paul Klodt, who had purchased the site from other developers who wanted to build a much larger movie theater/retail complex.

How cities work and change, how they are the product of their inhabitants and outside forces, and the resulting livability keep me thinking and dreaming about the future. I work in transit oriented development and have a background in urban real estate development. I am Past President of an Uptown business organization, grew up in Uptown, was on an Uptown neighborhood association Board, and am an Uptown and Lyn-Lake historian.
