The seductive imagery in this submission is both a plus and a minus; its slick quality tends to mask the good ideas here about open-space amenities to park development. A good plan needs to incorporate both vision and the nuts and bolts. The introductory material is odd; why is its lighting plan the second page? Attempts at placemaking feel sculptural, but the urban context is unclear.
