Columbia Height Plaza Completed and Looks Great! Don’t Forget What it Looked Like Only 7 Years Ago


Thanks to a reader for sending a new birdseye look at the plaza. We’ve been following this development closely, and whatever frustration and/or delay there has been I think most of us can agree that it came out great and is certainly a fantastic addition to the neighborhood. Even the solar trees can look awesome:

It can be hard to imagine this happening 10 years ago. I was lucky enough to have a reader send some photos from 7 years ago. I don’t think anyone can deny that this is progress:

Lots more photos of the area from 7 years ago after the jump.
