Just a heads-up bloggers on the upcoming public meeting on the future of the downtown Post Office.

Per the city, the Post Office Public Meeting will be held on Monday, April 16th at 6:00 p.m. in the Lane Room.

You may have seen the Daily Post article about Palo Alto telling the Postal Service they would like to buy their Post Office building and lease part of it back to the postal service. I'm not normally a big fan of municipalities getting into the commercial real estate business, but the very center of town and historic buildings might be an exception. Can anyone say "teen center"?!?


With all that marble and brass (the counter cages)--I can see a nice bar/restaurant with outdoor seating. This site can be a money generating machine for the city.


That would be great except I think the Post Office is going to sell it off to the very highest bidder. That is likely to be some big condo developer with no interest in bringing in the 30th bar in the downtown area. The key will be keeping that part of the building intact at all.

Also, does anyone know when the Public Garden on top of Five Guys is opening?
