Ah, a little bland to me

Or maybe a lot. What were the architects thinking when they thought up 'grayville?' This is how 'not' to do downtown restoration. Speaking of 'gray' where was the 'gray matter' in their brains?

There's more to come

Yeah, I would rather have some color in it but its not finished yet
Streetscape is the skeleton that we now have to flesh out. This streetscape infrastructure allows for the first time plugs to "twinkle" light trees and decorative lights in the Light poles. The light poles can now support banners and hanging flower basket. Public art can now be added such as artistic bicycle racks
My FAVORITE suggestion was to clad the concrete bunker planters in colorful mosaic tile art by local artists

Sure, I agree, the "grayscaping" of Ouellette Avenue is a little bland and a lot dull but at least it's cleaner than it was prior to the recent work. Ouellette Avenue desparately needed to be opened up and freshened up, it was looking very down at the heels. With twinkling lights in the winter months and added baskets of flowers and outdoor patios in the summer it will be very inviting.
