Lulz is that 10 or 15 years or so ago, they expanded and remodeled to take the whole block. At that time there was serious talk about just tearing it all down and building a condo, with the shop as retail at ground level. There was an UPROAR from neighbors! Think of their precious views! Their precious neighborhood character! Then the financial crisis hit, so ixnay on the condo and proceed with the 2-story remodel.
As we know, in the intervening years at least 3 other tear-down/new condos went up. So the neighbors got their blocked views anyway, and when the shop finally falters there will be a condo in that spot too.
