It looks like the Transit Garden will be getting some new neighbors: the Lee Brother’s Auto Repair shop across Smith St. will be converted into a four-story apartment building.
Take a look at the story on neighborhood blog Pardon Me For Asking for more details.
What does this mean for our garden? Well, in the short-term it could mean some dusty plants along the Smith St. side. When construction begins, be sure to hose off your plants regularly and if growing edibles, give them an extra wash. The building is slated to be 50ft tall, so once built it could impact the sunlight along that side of the garden as well. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.
