What if an important downtown corner was re-imagined as a sustainably designed, appropriately-scaled building with a connection to the elevated urban park along the rail road tracks behind it?
What if this mixed-use building had a market on the street level that could still include Buona Pizza, but maybe now they get some ingredients from the anchor tenant—an organic food co-op supplied by local farms? What if it was possible to live or work above the market and be within a 5 minute walk of shops, restaurants, markets, the movies, an elevated park and the historic Scranton Iron Furnaces?
What if this building was located on the 500 Block of Lackawanna Avenue, which is set to become a threshold to the new Iron District—an area that will be an artistic and cultural link between the downtown and South Scranton?
What if, Scranton?
