Dunk’s South Plaza Update

I snapped this quick pic of the South Plaza at the Dunk last week. Since then the landscaping has been finished and the construction fences have come down, I think it is done.

A comment in the previous post about this stated that there would be a lighting component to the plaza.

“Dubbed The Horizon Garden, Kim’s plan would transform the Dunk’s southwest corner into a small-scale sculpture park, complete with pedestrian-friendly benches and walkways and other landscaping features. At its center, the park would feature a sculpture, also designed by Kim, consisting of a perforated stainless steel screen dotted with thousands of button-size pieces of recycled glass.”

I haven’t yet been by at night to see if the lighting portion is working yet, but I’m looking forward to seeing it.

  • Amen. Nice and homeless-friendly for the many of us who will be forced on the streets in the coming months.
