Dear PoP – What’s the Construction at Georgia and Newton

“Dear PoP,

Do you know what the construction at Georgia and Newton might be? They are using a backhoe and completely digging up this corner plot. It would be nice to have something cool built in that location instead of just a fenced off empty plot.”

This is going to be a senior center. It was stalled back in June of ’08 but appears to finally be back on track.
