Eleven Trackside Center Visuals (268)


In recent debates over the proposed Trackside Center, I have noticed relatively few visual representations of it. Because much of the focus is on policy and its violation, the appearance of the building itself qua object seems to me to be relatively neglected.

So I thought I would attempt a modest corrective to this situation by collecting visuals appearing on the internet. I went to the City website on this topic and screenshot all the visual depictions/projections of it I came across. By my count, there are ten of them (and I may have missed some). And I found an additional view in a Vanguard article.

We need to appreciate that the developer has provided all eleven and this might mean a skewing in what is represented and in the particulars. So, it would also be good if we had critiques of these eleven visuals from opponents and visuals drawn up by opponents. And also, obviously, proponents might want to provide additional visuals and to respond to opponent visuals and critiques, if any.

I am happy to publish on this blog all additional visual materials and discussions of them sent to me.
