The saga of the former Del Taco building at 212 South Grand Boulevard -- a.k.a the Flying Saucer -- continues. Alderwoman Marlene Davis and developer Rick Yackey held a public meeting outside the Saucer yesterday evening.

Albert Samaha reports on the meeting for Daily RFT:
Yackey explained that he's working with architects to figure out a way to redesign the building with the Saucer intact, to make it marketable for potential retailers. Davis defended the development process and reiterated that demolishing the building was never the main intention, but rather a possibility that got blown out of proportion. They didn't break any news, but Yackey did say to the Saucer faithful that "it looks promising."
