Former Taqueria Storefronts Completely Dismantled

I had to stop in my tracks yeaterday when I walked past the storefronts on Seventh Avenue between Berkeley and Lincoln that were last home to La Taqueria, soon to be home to the new Ozzie's coffee and The Painted Pot, a pottery studio. The two entryways used to jut out, with the building's front door set back from the sidewalk, but now those entryways have been completely removed.

It looks like the facades will now be set back from the sidewalk, flush with the building's doorway. Not sure why they would cut back on the square footage in this way; maybe the building owner (who's also been doing extensive work on the upper floors' exterior) wanted to "modernize" and allow for some outdoor seating. You can still see the old flooring on either side of the center doorway above.

Will be interested in seeing how this ends up looking when all is said and done.

I noticed that too and have to guess it's for a little bit of outdoor seating. Hope so, that would be great!
