Question, what is up with the sidewalk along the curb? Is that asphalt? Dirt? Planter boxes? Waiting to be filled in with cement? It’s hard to tell from the aerials but it looks very uniform and intentional.
Agreed. That is a dumb decision and will look like shit within no time. Just pave it with cement and provide a nice wide sidewalk for pedestrians. Add above ground planter boxes or vases to spruce it up instead.
