library dome going up

8 Apr

We were driving on the connector from 163 to I-5 south last weekend and noticed the dome is starting to appear on top of the new library downtown. Here’s some pictures from the surrounding neighborhood:

Completion is scheduled for summer of 2013. Updates can be found here, where they’re still taking donations.

On the other side of Petco Park, Lucky’s has opened in the Culy Warehouse (also coming to Culy: Block No. 16 Union and Spirits club, where their 25 by 35 foot LCD screen just went up).

A deli counter tucked into a small space, they’re serving sandwiches, salads and breakfast late into the night. We were impressed with their service – even though you pay at the counter, staff come by to refill your soda and check if you need anything. Our turkey and roast beef sandwiches were piled high, but at $11 a pop they better be:

Up in North Park, says the folks that brought you Golden Hill’s Counterpoint have purchased the Post Office building that closed last July. And there’s a new mural up on the west-facing wall of Wang’s, painted by NYC artist Mark Paul Deren:

Gregg N says:

That sandwich above looks amazing. I might just have to give Lucky’s a try next time I visit the park.
