As the site of the former Paramount Theatre becomes more and more level, I am wondering what the new open space could mean for uptown. While surface parking could well be in the cards, the fact that there is a big open space near King Square could lead to a few other developments or ideas.
I wonder if the open space will provide better lighting and security for the back of several Union Street locales, possibly allowing for up-grades.
Another thing that could come out of the increase in open space is a new venue for food trucks. The City might allow for such a use and it wouldn’t even disrupt existing parking (City regulations). With one food truck on the boardwalk (Beaver Tails) and another in KV (Funky Monkey) there could be enough appetite growing in this type of business.
