Fixing the Commodore Plaza problem

Remember those extended sidewalk islands that were built on Commodore Plaza and then removed? They are back, but so much better. I really like what they did now. Rather than have that gutter separating the extra sidewalk from the main sidewalk, it is one big wide sidewalk now. It's nice. It looks like restaurant tables could be be out there and of course, they leveled it, so it's very safe. There is a slope in the center which allows things with wheels to get up and down from the street, like baby strollers, wheelchairs, and things like that.

The appearance is like a plaza, which of course makes Commodore Plaza an actual plaza, at least in that area of the street. It's very clean, wide and sleek.

They got it right the 2nd time around? Awesome!

They should hire the same brilliant Engineers to finish that infamous oval thing on 27th AV before 2020!

They should paint a crosswalk on the street between the extended curbs.

The City was on a budget to fix the embarrassing mess they did in the first place.

I can't say anything good about a big screw up in the first place

Brick is always a poor choice for South Florida as it creates more heat when hit by the sun than a lighter color surface. With the elimination of our tree canopy, this is a problem! It does look good though. As far as Old Chicago, then you would have to change out the entire grove paving. It would not look good to mix and match at this point.
