Cityshot XLIV

Bonus picture as well. 9th Street was skid row a year and a half ago, architects and engineers even strongly advised developer Steve Mason to tear everything down and rebuild. Instead he had a unique vision..reuse the existing warehouse and dilapidated houses and put unique businesses in them. Today..the area has been an incredible success.

I think keeping the overgrown green, just trimming it up a little bit, also contributes a lot to the cool environment.. it gives it kind of an "under the radar" feel, and it also provides shade on hot muggy Oklahoma summer days.
