Undated aerial view of Greenbush neighborhood

The shopping center never happened.  The site is now home to a UW Health Clinic.

The above rendering winds up in an office trash can.

Eventually, the weedy lot in the foreground became the site of another medical clinic.

Another design that didn't make it off the drawing board.  The Davis Duehr Eye Clinic now occupies the site on Regent Street between Mills and Brooks.

May 26, 1968

Other than the low-rise apartments along Regent Street, the Triangle property is vacant.
