It's amazing what the flush of green that accompanies spring can do to soften the city. Dominated by a limited palate of brown, gray and white in the winter months, the predominance and harshness of concrete becomes all the more apparent. Captured by Forum member Empty_Quarter, this photo shows the wonderful return of life to the city. Taken from WZMH's office on St. Clair, this image gives us an idea of the incredible, unobstructed views that residents can look forward to once construction is completed. Exciting, too, is the vantage point that gives witness to all the construction taking place downtown. Some of the more high-profile projects visible in this photo include the new Four Seasons Hotel and Residences, Couture, The Florian as well as Shangri-La and the Trump Tower.
