Mexican restaurant La Carnita has been operating a fenced-in patio in the plaza, located just west of Adelaide Street.
It’s been a popular destination but there’s a problem: the patio is located on public space. The property is owned by Pinnacle International, but as part of a deal to build a 43-storey condo on the site, the developer agreed to build and maintain the plaza as a “privately owned publicly-accessible space,” or POPS.
According to city staff, POPS “are designed for access to all people, not customers of a particular business or residents or workers of a particular building”
Jeff asks Jake Tobin Garret, Park People, should the fence be taken down.
