West 38th Avenue has gotten a little livelier with the opening of Plaza38. Gene Lucero first bought the property nearly 20 years ago, in 2001, where it housed the Lucero financial group. He sold it in 2015, and repurchased the retail in 2017. Today, he’s still there, but he’s brought in a few other businesses, as well. Plaza38 has dining, independent stores and a bar where you can watch everyone on 38th go by. There’s also off-street and garage parking. The Plaza38 opening was celebrated Nov. 9 with food trucks, live music and tours of the businesses.
