Kiener Reopened

STL's main downtown square, Kiener Plaza, has been closed for a year for renovation. It was completely redesigned and opened again this weekend.

There are pluses and minuses. A lot of it looks quite barren to me. The new landscaping, where it exists, is better. (It couldn't have been much worse in the old one.) There is more seating and a cute, if somewhat cramped, children's play area. It will look better when the trees fill in.

I'm going to cover this for a few days with some comparison shots to the old plaza.

So is the fountain gone now? There used to be a web-cam situated somewhere looking toward the arch and over that fountain.

I see the fountain is still there!

That last one's my favourite, Bob.

This is a little bit like me and Elizabeth Quay Bob :) I think this looks pretty good, as you say when it's not so new and the trees have grown a bit even better. I can see many more opportunities for Arch shots now too. Absolutely love the last shot here, super framing sir :)
