Last month, I posted some concerns that I had regarding the Fountain Square project. In the comments, I was contacted by the firm responsible for the redesign. Last Friday I met with Eric Fulford from NINebark, along with Paul Baumgarten of SEND, and they brought renderings of their vision for the project. There’s also a longer PDF of the groups long-term vision (warning, this link is only live for 14 days or 500 downloads). They were gracious enough to let me post the square’s renderings here:
Major features of the project include:
Moving back to the PDF of their long term vision, the most exciting aspect for me was the reconfiguration of Woodlawn Avenue along its historic alignment, freeing up a ton of space for new development. It’s a great idea, but until it receives funding, it will remain on the drawing board.
It was great to meet with these gentlemen, and I wish them success.
