     We now know what the new Town Branch Commons will look like.

     On Monday the Lexington Downtown Development Authority unanimously chose the New York based firm SCAPE/LANDSCAPE Architecture as winning designers of the project.

    SCAPE was chosen out of five finalists from across the globe to design the project which will feature a large scale park, starting on the north side of Rupp Arena and travel past the arena into downtown.

   No word yet on how much the project will cost or when it will begin.

   The park will feature walking trails, playground equipment and even a waterfall as the city plans to bring the old Town Branch Creek back to the surface, in a process called 'day-lighting.'

  You can see the designs of the project, and the other four finalist designs at the Downtown Arts Center on Main Street.
