The half-acre public pocket park located in the nearly-finished Medallion rental building on Main Street in downtown is about to get some man-made humps aka hills. See those two ramps? Barry A. Milofsky, partner at project architect M2A Architects, explains the ramps are part of the green roof and will be planted as grass hillsides. And the third ramp, in the foreground, is getting stepped seating, and may serve as amphitheater seating for performances on the plaza below. Come summer, who won't want a grassy place to wander through on your way home from happy hour at Pete's? And since our last visit, you can see the exterior given that the scaffolding is now down at the 96-unit project, which will be finished later this spring.
