From a press release:

In short, the Public Realm Vision Plan focuses on the four following sites:

The Plaza: A public gathering space at First and L Streets, NE

The Tracks: A recreation and train-watching venue between the railroad tracks and Second Street, NE at K Street, NE

A casual neighborhood park at Florida Avenue and N Street, NE

The Gateway: To enliven and add color to the intersection of New York and Florida Avenues and First Street, NE, the plan envisions large, colorful obelisk-type structures greeting residents and visitors on their way to and from NoMa and Washington, D.C.

Legislation has been introduced by Councilmember Wellsin the DC Council that would provide the needed funds.

    This is a great idea! Ever since my partner and I have moved over here, we’ve wished there were more fountains and parks here. It’s good to see that someone is thinking of adding a few more public spaces.

      Considering that Truxton Circle and Dupont Circle were the only circles in DC with a fountain, it would be great to see more fountains in the area!

    Just don’t chase those soccer balls into the street, kiddies.
