Block 2 of the Park East has in the past been referred to as “Block 2W” or “Parcel 37.”  Because unconstructed 5th Street runs between Blocks 2 and 4, they are often perceived as one mega-block. Block 2 is made up of two (2) lots totaling 106,603 sq. ft.  Between the lots is a contemplated public alley of 7,466 sq. ft. running east-west overlaying a storm sewer easement providing drainage from the Marquette Interchange.

Past uses for the block include a gas station, a truck rental company, a malt and grain company, a soap factory, a printing company, a foundry/iron works and a junkyard.  While the Park East freeway was in place, a portion of this block served as a parking lot. 

The site has environmental conditions typical of many urban infill sites.  To expedite the development process, the County has obtained Phase I and Phase II reports.  For more details see the following links:
