New Views on 4MR Expand

Conceptual view of the 4MR Park Gateway
Some aerial views of the Four Mile Run Expansion were just made available. See below.

4MR Expand was envisioned by the 2003 Arlandria Plan and incorporated into the 2005 Four Mile Run Restoration Master Plan. Four parcels were nominated to be acquired with Open Space Funds and after the City purchased the lots, environmental remediation was done to the site.

Citizen volunteers helped clean up the site and repair the building and a group of local architects and designers offered a plan for the site free of charge and unspent funds earmarked for Streetscape improvements in 2003 were redirected to finish the work.

Architects Anonymous plans for the site are on-going and it is very much still a work in progress. The asphalt is barely dry but expect to see trees along Mt Vernon Avenue and the edges of the site very soon.
