The rain garden will act as an on-site water collection, treatment and reuse of stormwater runoff. The larger flexible green space between K and I Streets could be used for movies or concerts, with seating room for 500 and standing room for 1,200. The water feature is envisioned as supporting "interactive use" in the summer and skating rink in the winter. In March of this year the city announced the choice of OLIN, a Philadelphia-based landscape architectural firm, to design the park. Studios Architecture, a consultant of OLIN, designed the planned pavilions for the park as pictured above.
To close out the meeting, the NCPC also agreed to release their CapitalSpace plan for public comment.
