Re: Re: Smithfield Wasteland
It’s too late for the in-fill, but we could still have a few trees and a market, what’s wrong with that?
If you’re just talking trees in planters, fine – and a decent market would be great … but if trees are to be ground planted, and not just in a formally laid out space like smithfield but on any city street, you have to plan !!! obviously the addition of trees will completely change the appearance of the space in time, block facades, sight lines, create vistas etc.
again, ‘sure just plant a few trees’ sums up DCC’s hotch potch approach to the public realm and its just not on.
