Last Thursday, Vision McMillan Partners (VMP) presented their latest plans to redevelop the McMillan Sand Filtration site to the Historic Preservation Review Board. The images were nothing short of wowing, so we asked VMP to let us share them with readers.
The most notable change in the newest plan is the park. Before, a central 3.4 acre park was joined by several other smaller green spaces distributed throughout the site; in the new plans, a 6.2 acre park sits at the southern edge, rather than in the center.
At the meeting, VMP stressed the extent to which the new design highlights the sand towers. One tower is being used as the entrance to the park, and several are front and center in the park itself. The underground cells of the site will also be a part of the design.
