A parking lot and construction staging area between two downtown lofts was set to become a park a year and a half ago. Now finalized designs have been released, finds blogdowntown.

Spring Street Park will be 35,000 square foot and mainly feature green space. Planners originally proposed a more ornate space, but residents, who lack green space in downtown, wanted it to be simple. Although it's exciting to see images of the park, which will be found on Spring between 3rd and 4th, it's not expected to be completed until summer 2012.

Nearby in the Arts District, a piece of land will be converted into a dog park.
