Construction is commencing today. Or at least there will be some activity at 5505 Padre Boulevard to give this whole dream some sense of reality.
I'm going to check things out. Hopefully, I can get some pictures posted this afternoon.
I need to temper my good news with a note of best wishes to the Franke's. It was really a shame to see the damage to such a beautiful building and such a labor of love. I was especially sorry to hear about this building fire, because Dennis Franke has been an avid supporter and source of encouragement for my bookstore project.
