The worst landscaping in the hood
« on: April 03, 2019, 06:04:34 PM »
The winner is the building on the SE corner of 34th and 76th. Last summer, they cut a big tree halfway and left it like that. The grass area is a mess. Nothing has happened there in months. Anyone know what the grand plans are?

As a side note, how is that acceptable? We say we take pride in living in a neighborhood like JH with its historic charms and maintained gardens, and then a large building like this does such a shitty job with its landscaping. What gives?

I think this may be the same building I posted about back in June, 2018. The only progress I've seen since then is that they've enclosed the lawn area with fencing. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any type of planting or maintenance for the Spring happening, so I doubt there will be growth of anything green anytime soon. Hoping I'm wrong.  :( It's an eyesore.

Yes, that's the one! It does look so much worse now, and yes, I too fear nothing is in place for this spring/summer season.

 I think they have something planned. It was no prize before and the task of getting rid of the big trees that were there is a big one. The brick work around the edge is quite nice and I think they significantly upgraded
this complex. Will see how this season goes...

Agreed. This is like saying Rory Staunton Field looks terrible now. It's a work in progress! I doubt any building would fork out the amount of money it already has without planning to finish it.

Hope you're right! The way they cut that tree halfway doesn't give me much confidence. One can spend a lot of money on a crappy project...
