There has been some concern from those worried about the plaza that the plaza will be "ugly".
Allow me to allay those concerns! These are simply a first pass of what could be, that everything- from overall design to what type of trees are used to planter box placement to chair type to surface materials will all require further neighborhood input before anything is put in place.
Here is a view of the plaza from a bird's eye view from the Southwest (from Noe Street behind Rabat).
And here is the plaza from eye level, looking from the Northeast (from in front of Starbucks).
