Hidden downtown courtyard revealed

Downtown real estate player Brigham Yen alerted everyone to this back in February, and now the reveal has happened. A former storefront in place since World War II has been removed on 6th Street to expose a courtyard between wings of the Pacific Mutual Building. Voila: outdoor seating space for a Pain Quotidien and a Tender Greens set to open shortly after the first of the year. Yen has more pics and details.

Here is the rendering from February of how it is supposed to look (in some architect's dreams.)
