Development: A Tale of Two Lighting Schemes

This is a little bit to the west of Hurst. If you look at the third picture, you can kind of see that the entrance with the two retro lights is just a little before the corner with Missouri St.

This picture shows the lot next to Hurst (obviously they're still working on that). The fence along the left side comes down and meets the sidewalk right where I was standing to take the third picture.
