The changes on Commodore Plaza
These large oaks in front of the Arts & Minds School are nice, but they're not the same as 80 year old shade trees.
I never realized how ugly these buildings were before. Guess the former trees were hiding the facades.
I can't help think that the whole streetscape plan was tied in with all the sales going on in Coconut Grove. Too much change going on. Too few landowners now. One friend was told we'll be like New York's West Village soon. To be honest, it's all organic in the West Village. Old buildings were preserved there and so were the sidewalks and trees. You're walking on 200 year old sidewalks there. They don't dig them up and replace them every few years like we do here. Same with the trees. The West Village trees are old. And only one or two people don't own the West Village.
