Last night, a team of architects from Philadelphia’s Wallace Roberts & Todd unveiled their plan to give the east end of the Downtown Mall (and much of downtown) a new look and some new features. Council approved the design process back in December, and this is the result of that. The initial goal was to design a CTS bus transfer station, but the plan now includes a mall expansion, planing trees along West Main, dead-ending South Street and installing a parking garage under the amphitheater. Some people are unhappy with the plan, though, notably because it can’t possibly be accomplished with the $3M in federal grant money that has been allocated. Jake Mooney has the story in today’s Progress.
