This sign went up a few weeks ago at the corner of Broadway and Johnston Street right next to the empty Mid-Broadway lot. The fence is new and stops people walking through it as was once a popular habit. I called the number and they said there are no specific plans to develop the site, rather it is an invitation for development.

With so many vacant buildings on Broadway needing development it might be a while before anything happens here.
