On this section of our tour of Leucadia's coastal corridor, we have just walked past the Bar Leucadian and are now at the empty lot at the corner of Edgeburt Dr.

This is an example of why it would be great if whomever bought this lot did something cool with it. I am a big "Keep Leucadia Funky" guy but I don't consider dirt sidewalks and puddles to be funky. This site has a lot of potential. What happens to our empty lots is very important for the future ambiance of Leucadia. I would like to see the lots purchased by heady developers/architects who would build modern 21st century projects that are LEED certified like this building.

I had heard a rumor that the owner of the fine St Germain's restaurant in downtown Encinitas was interested in this lot and wanted to move the 101 Artist Colony here. Has anyone else heard this rumor?
Since this sign says commercial/residential coming soon for lease, I assume there is already a plan for this space. I truly hope they build a cool structure and not some god-awful Carlsbad style stucco monster, or something like that terrible building in Cardiff where Miracle's coffee shop used to be.
Ah, more info. This notice says that they are to be 9 condos on this location and the commercial space will be 9,879 square feet. I'm surprised they are only putting in 9 condos and not more.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this little block of north Leucadia.
