Constitutional Amendments

Routine users of Constitution Plaza know that its been under construction for a few months now. Finally, there are visible signs of why segments of the plaza were fenced off during this past spring and summer.

The area surrounding the Phoenix Building is being reconfigured to be greener and more inviting.

    The underlying reason for the work at the Phoenix Plaza is that the surface was old and leaking. Just replacing the surface as it was would have created the same closures and disruption. The good news is that Phoenix took the opportunity using the tenets of iQuilt to rethink the roof that will not only become greener and more attractive but possibly less expensive to install and maintain. The “boat” building and the plaza turned fifty this year and it is great to see Phoenix making the investment for another 50 years.

    • It’s good to see places learning from previous mistakes and fixing them. Giant expanses of manufactured materials and little vegetation will always have negative repercussions.

    Has it reopened? I stopped checking and started taking different bridges.
