    This looks like an outstanding projects. I love that it combines historic elements and pedestrian walkways with seating and water elements. Beautifully done with the correct scale and height for that corner. Underground parking to eliminate that look and the large plaza at the corner. YOU DID IT!!
    Count me in.
