Smith letter: Apartments

We are impressed with plans for the new apartment project at 5th and Idaho, especially the airy space facing the Davies Reid historic building with its Flemish architecture. And the creation of a pocket park would further enhance the apartment’s value to the city. But artificial turf? The quality of creative thinking in the overall design deserves “the real deal,” i.e. live green grass. A gathering place made of plastic grass is not a park.
