Maybe, but they are trying to control access to the back side of the building (which is very out of sight, so very open to abuse).^ That's ridiculous. That's not even a park, its just some sidewalk landscaping.
Well then, the fence certainly isn't gonna keep out anyone who is intent on doing mischief on the back side of the building. If the intention was to control access to the back of the building, a tall fence/gate between the building and the wall would be more effective and cost effective instead of fencing such a much larger area.Maybe, but they are trying to control access to the back side of the building (which is very out of sight, so very open to abuse).
Winn Companies I believe.Thanks, Jeff! Who owns Tai Tung Village?
I remember something from a few years ago where Trinity Financial wanted to add housing to the existing project somewhere in Chinatown, but this isn't that, is it? If I remember correctly, at the time there was an outcry?
I believe controlling interest for Tai Tung Village was transferred to CCBA (Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association).Winn Companies I believe.
Love how that little plaza turned out. Great way to reclaim excess pavement downtown. Hope they end up extending it all the way to the end of the block as the original plans called for!
I agree and learned about the "tactical plaza" concept at a recent BSA exhibit on flexible urban spaces. There is one on Franklin St downtown but I don't recall seeing it: https://www.boston.gov/news/new-tactical-plaza-downtown-boston
