Could use a bit more decoration to distract from the ongoing construction. It doesn't seem too welcoming. There was a fire pit on the Marriott side last night.

Lot square footage of the bar is 1,947.
The lot to the south is 12,530sq ft.
The lot to the north is 28,122.

The total for that block is 42,599 sq ft.

Assuming they build a parking deck above or below the store itself, they can certainly fit a good size store there.
