LAN calls Public Square "notoriously banal," but says the proposal could inject new life into downtown:
The plan aims to weave the four small squares into one large square-park with grassy hills and trees a-plenty. If this project gets off the ground, the green infrastructure will run past the park’s perimeters, truly reinvigorating downtown Cleveland.
The whole "if the project gets off the ground" thing is a fairly significant caveat. Plans have been germinating for years, and the most recent rendering, released in April by NYC architect James Corner, looks like it would cost about $40 million to complete, with all sorts of prerequisite studies and "securing funding" and whathaveyou still up in the air.
That one in Casablanca looks pretty cool.
