yes....dirt is, well, dirt cheap.
Any idea why they don't want remove the concrete pillar on new York park ?
Kept as an art installation?
This was discussed a while ago and I think the final decision about the concrete pillars is not made. Depending on the park design they may remain, or they may not. They are not in the way for the moment.
I guess no place for homeless people to set up camp either which means no having to clear them out every few months.
I can't wait to this corridor is fully landscaped and finished because right now it looks like this big empty corridor that's not much better without the ramp. Hope they spruce it up soon.
I have not yet seen any park plans so suspect nothing will be done with it until summer 2018,
Just in time for the summer solstice?
Get your druid robes ready for Ramphenge 2018!
Personally, I think keeping the pillars in the park has a nice semi-modern art touch. Wouldn't be oppose to them staying put or having a few removed. Maybe an even better idea would be installing trellis/latices on the pillars and planting climbing vines or colourful flowering vines (eg. trumpet vine, wisteria) to cover them.
But this being Toronto...it's just way too common sense.
*whispers* Toronto has already done this.
To blurt it out loud:
Art painting will be fine
Not sure why we need to keep the columns just so that it can serve as a canvas. Those at the Underpass Park still serve an essential function - not really going to be case in this situation
If I understand correctly, the decision to keep or save or 'disguise" the columns has NOT been made. They were left in place to leave options open as the park is being planned. On which point .... I think it is about time that the City (or WT?) discussed or even revealed these plans!
