  1. Can someone explain how they did the street widening?
    While the street does appear wider than most, I don’t see any evidence on the building fronts? Did they just shorten the sidewalks or actually move the buildings?
    It was my understanding that in the case of Burnside, they shaved the front X feet off the front of buildings and then build a new façade. However, in this case, the building façade does not appear new or altered.
