In 2002, artist Bren Alvarez created "File Under So. Co., Waiting for…," an art installation raised in response to a long-delayed roadway, the Southern Connector (now the Champlain Parkway). Also known as the "World's Tallest Filing Cabinet," the piece was installed on the centerline of the planned roadway. As the City moved toward construction in 2020, Alvarez took the opportunity to move the local icon to a more permanent location adjacent to the site. In the process, she revised the base, adding additional height and new components that further reference the bureaucracy embedded in this legendary project. The sculpture is now the central feature of a new art park outside of 208 Flynn Ave.
