Investment of £15 million in the area’s public spaces, including the £4 million Custom House Square, winner of a Principal Civic Trust Award in 2006, followed production of the masterplan.”

Chicago’s Olympic plan puts scenic South Side Park in peril — chicagotribune.com

chicagotribune.com reports

“Besides its disappointing (but still salvageable) plan for an Olympic Village, Chicago’s 2016 bid book raises another major design issue: Will the Games mar or upgrade Washington Park, the South Side park planned in 1871 by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the same pair that produced New York City’s masterful Central Park?

That question has gained a new intensity because the city’s Olympic organizers don’t just want to put the temporary, 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium in Washington Park, as they first announced in 2006. Now they are proposing to put the Olympic aquatics center there as well.”
