For years, the building that marked part of the boundary between Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and Schenley Park just sat there, something of an eyesore. It was a nondescript one-story cinder-block structure dating to the 1960s, built for the city’s Department of Public Works. Phipps owned it and even considered tearing it down.
