Station Wagon Man’s Lot Gets a Giant Makeover

The home on the triangle shaped lot at Purdue and Dickens, locally referred to as the “station wagon man’s house” has been flattened and looks to be getting ready for a new era. Real estate agents have been circling that property like hawks for years. I hope that somewhere on that highly coveted piece of land, the winners new owners pay proper tribute to history with a simple reference to the wagons of days gone by.

    Merrit,

    Highland Park sent out an email at least 30 minutes ago noting that Belles director has resigned to “pursue other career opportunities.” Goth fiasco repercussions? Come on – get on it.

    It is a shame the City of University Park could not come to terms to purchase this lot. It would have made a nice park and green area. I know the city was trying. Who ever builds on this lot will be living in a fish bowl. Lot has no neighborhood feel – island. Only good for storing stationwagons.

    Bury the station wagons on the property like the Cadillacs in Amarillo

    A park? It’s too small. We already have too many “micro-parks” in UP. My favorites are the esplanades on University Blvd and the opposing north-side corners at Lovers and Hillcrest . Other than a few local dogs, don’t see too many people using them. All that would do would take yet more real estate off the tax rolls. I don’t see anyone building there soon. It’s like the lot at Armstrong and Lakeside in HP, oddly shaped and over-priced, and, like you said, a “fish-bowl”.
