I used to live and work in this area but moved away since. So weird to see how relentless construction has been and doesn't seem to be coming to an end anytime soon

Plus there's so much more density coming to this area over the next few years. It will really fill in nicely.

Will there be trees or greenery to soften the ground level? Renders don't show it, so I'm not hopeful.

Trees, No

Some Greenery was in the landscape plan, but pretty low-level stuff.

The approved plan is below:

The planting bed will have Lady Ferns, Bottlebrush Buckeye and Sweet Woodruff.

IF the plan is adhered to; these things do change.

Thanks for the detailed plan. I see "concrete" pedestrian walkway in the above plan layout.

How does this fit into the "stone" pavement/sidewalk and tree planting in John street improvement plan proposal by the City if/when the plan will be implemented ?

Look carefully at the drawing, and you will see these magic words:

Yep looks like it to me, the fence is now on the inside of the sidewalk.

Quick phone snap:

I have difficulty believing the John Street Plans for this block aren't 100% complete.
Why would they would pour concrete, when I'm fairly certain that won't be the spec here is beyond me.........
I suppose I should be happy they didn't do anything elaborate, lest that be ripped out.........

Still...

I noted above, that the approval was to pour concrete if the John Street plans weren't complete.................
