Anyone interested in the history of the Skinker/DeBaliviere neighborhood should check out the online archives of The Times of Skinker DeBaliviere. Some fun stuff, such as arguments about street barricades, gentrification, MetroLink, etc. They seem to have everything back to the 1970s.

Fascinating stuff in those issues.
The first one talks about demolishing two "obsolete" buildings on the SW corner of Delmar and Skinker for a Jack in the Box. The JITB didn't happen, but the demoes did and now we have the fenced-off barely-used AT&T parking lot.
Two-story garage

Cool. Would love to see more of that in Skink-D.
Would love to see more of that in the city in general. :)
Good place to put the mother-in-law.
Just walked by to check this one out and it's actually a very misleading layout. There's no second floor and at best the space above the garage is for storage (think a few boxes, probably less than 100-150 cubic feet). The windows appear to be for aesthetic purposes only.
