Ten years ago, the corner of 16th and Blake was a surface parking lot. As you know, surface parking lots are soul-sucking black holes in the urban fabric, so naturally, we celebrate their eradication. In the photo below, taken on December 14, 2006, we can see that former surface parking lot being removed in preparation for the construction of SugarCube.


Visit this corner today and imagine how empty and unsatisfactory it would feel if SugarCube were not there.
