Replacing the gas station and grade separating the Dean/Calhoun intersection would go a long way to making this area suck less.

When I’ve been stuck waiting to cross Lake I’ve wished it were grade separated. But I struggle imagining how to do it without raising Lake up and have it cut the view from Dean Pkwy and the ground floor of Calhoun Beach Club.

I'm not normally a fan of pedestrian/bike bridges, but this seems like a location where there's enough demand to justify it, and enough land on either side to have the ramping up to the bridge be gradual and blend into the landscape in a not-terrible way.

I would go the opposite way - raise Dean and Calhoun Pkwys over Lake instead. They're small enough roads that they can gently rise on both sides. The turn lane onto Lake can remain an alley for access to the towers that connect to Dean right now.

In this story about the Jiffy Lube site needing clean up money, it mentions the site owner would like to put in restaurants but in the long term desired to tear out it and an adjacent property and put up multi story residential.

Eventually — in five to 10 years — the developer hopes to knock down both buildings, thoroughly clean up the soil around the Jiffy Lube structure and erect a multi-story residential-retail building spanning both sites.

This would be a fine project. Wished they were more open to fewer car parking spaces, though I can understand being skeptical when no LRT station exists nor a ped bridge over the trail is even planned.
