Not sure when the photo was taken. It must have been within the past year or so. I got it from the Kamms website.
I don't really understand what the rendering is showing besides new streetlights and signals. The trees are already there, just not in season. I guess you can see the strip of brick pavers by the street too.
I don't think the picture shows what poor condition the sidewalks were in. The trees were there, but there were no planters on the street, which can brighten up things quite a bit... but the biggest change is the burrying of the power lines and replacing the existing street lights with something much more aesthetically pleasing. They are also narrowing the street a bit so it doesn't seem so pedestrian unfriendly and adding angled parking to accomodate more visitors. You can see more of what is going on here...http://www.kammscorners.com/streetscape.html
It sounds from the description on the website that they are replacing the trees ... "new, more compact, yet airy, street trees". Maybe I'm reading it wrong and they will supplement the existing trees. But it doesn't sound like it. That would be a real shame, given how mature the trees look to be and how long a corridor we're talking about. Still, a great project.Edit: Taking it back. Looking at a site plan of the corridor, it looks like at least a portion of the existing tree stock will remain.
