I hate that such a beautiful park is going to be between 2 parking lots and just have dumpster bins on either side -_-
There's a proposal for the lot to the west (zoning approved in July), which was submitted looking like this:

It's planned as a seniors residence, so, uh, perfect for the cats thing?!?!?!?!?!?!

November 25, 2022: And the grass is greener....

Photos taken two minutes apart - change in sunlight, and angle. The first photo below, which is actually the second one to be taken, is from the north looking south, while the second photo is from the south, just in from Wellington Street, looking north.

That's not consistent w/the final design, as least as I recall it. Hmmm.

Looks like a temporary 'space filler' to me - where are the cats?

That and landscaping are obviously missing, but more notable to me was there isn't even a pathway.

I'm assuming they decided it was too cold to do the additional work before spring, and this would be done to hold the soil in place.

I'm not sure why just wouldn't tarp it..........

A path to nowhere? Maybe they put down grass until next spring or until the BIG. building is completed in a few years.

Does anyone actually know for sure that CCXA have the contract to do this? I’m going to ask. At this point it seems like the most solid source is a CBC story from 2018.
