A couple of years ago, we profiled the multitude of changes on the 2100 block of Carpenter Street over the past decade. Back in 2004, vacant lots outnumbered buildings by a factor of 2:1. Over time, those vacant lots have been filled in and a wonderful park has opened at the corner of 22nd & Carpenter. The last vacant lot (really a vacant pit), on the northwest corner of 21st & Carpenter, finally went under construction last year.

Going by the other day, we noticed that the construction here has hit the home stretch.

Finally, this block is (nearly) complete. And it only took ten years. Not bad at all, if you ask us.
