Last November we published the design concept for Santa Monica Palisades Garden Walk & Town Square  by James Corner Field Operations. Recently, we learnt that the design for the Town Square has since been updated to reflect the Landmarks Commission conditions to be granted a Certificate Of Appropriateness  “the retention, rehabilitation and/or relocation of certain existing historic character defining elements of the site, in addition to reconfiguring the site topography and grade, the installation of new landscaping and hardscape materials, a central water feature, new benches and seat walls, and lighting. Pursuant to Santa Monica Municipal Code, a Certificate of Appropriateness is required for any proposed alterations in whole or in part, of or to a Landmark or Landmark Parcel”.  The design is currently waiting for final approval from the City Council.
