The digging machines cleared the space for a classic foundation off Fourth Avenue south of Broadway. Dirt ground gives construction workers the base they use to lay in the foundation corners that will stand beneath the plaza and amphitheater built reinforced, and propped, to sit on the excavated Horton Plaza land open to the public.
Reviving the place the crowds spend time talking, and cultivating tastes for the main downtown scene and the weekend's season on call events, stays on the planned track.
Work goes on, the old Robinsons-May Building a one and only part of local history. Taking out the mall's large building left a commons empty space, behind Citibank, on the east, locals can count on to ultimately give the world a lasting weather proof place to spend a day enjoying San Diego life. The hardscape plaza built at the map location open doors fill the busy block beats will change downtown steps.
Flat land strips inside the green construction fence, near Broadway, stay full of still foliage life until the park, finally refreshened to thrive, again palmy and welcoming for the native walkers, sets the scene for the new status quo.
Refounding an easy stop in location, at the corner, in the underground dirt square, long out to the south end of the block, keeps the work non-stop. Count the founding sounds.
