Or, at the very least, that the building would be green, i.e. sustainable. Considering that it is being built on public park land, after all.
However, those outcomes seem increasingly unlikely. Most likely on account of a hurried timeline and a limited budget. But nonetheless disappointing.
This blurb was buried in the official announcement:
In summer 2009, the temporary menu will expand when the permanent structure opens with a full menu, including burgers, shakes, salads, and artisanal Capogiro gelato. The structure is designed to match the existing small buildings in Franklin Square.So it will be contextual. And quaint. And safe. And, yes, red brick.
Unfortunate. But whatever. At least now we can focus on the food...
