Part of the problem with past projects was always a "If you build it, they will come" philosophy. Visionary Square addresses this by requiring active programming of the space with events and vendors. We've seen an actively programmed park take off in Buffalo with Larkin Square and Canalside, we even see glimpses of it at the Public Market with the Food Truck Rodeo and other non-market events. If we build it, and work to give people a reason to come, they will. The ferry and Renaissance Square failed in part because they were a means with no end. This is a much better planned project.
It's the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America - ELCA.
It should be mentioned that Dogtown is the only place in the city that I've found to serve a vegan garbage plate! A neat meatless take on the original, it leaves you wanting a bit for grease, but it's a great alternative.
