Dang, I knew about it, and I still missed it.

In the photo composition above, I suppose there's some symbolism that could be read into the right-of-way stake.

Yes, the stake is full of symbolism. It is the stake driven into the neighborhood by Putnam. Can anybody explain to me why the AG would move into retail space for $ 30/square foot compared to staying in office space for $ 14/square foot at the Washington building?? You and I know they use tax money to pay rent, yes? Why would the AG vacate office space (with Russell leaving town) and move into retail space? And what is with the city council approving of this? Putnam is paying the city a dollar a year for the space? WTF?
