Develop the intersection of Memorial Drive and Springwood Avenue as a key neighborhood gateway

As the map below makes clear, the intersection of Memorial and Springwood is a true gateway to the city of Asbury Park. But the corners are currently occupied by low-lying buildings or vacant lots, which doesn’t communicate a sense of arrival to an interesting place. Transforming it into a landmark location will welcome visitors to the city and encourage them to explore the rest of the Springwood Avenue corridor.
