There is a large patch of grass between the first towers by Claridge on LeBreton Flats, and the new Wellington Street. This is the site of the new Fallen Firefighters’ Memorial. Construction is supposed to begin this year to build the memorial. I remain sceptical about how well it will function as a people space. I am concerned it may be a dead spot along the road.
In the drawing above, the road at the bottom is Wellington, the block at the top is the first podium part of the LeBreton yellow brick condo, and the curvy road is the new Lett Street which is open for traffic. As you can see from the drawing below, the rock formation along Wellington will be high – maybe 12′ high, and the fifteen foot high firefighter will be visible mostly from Lett Street or when going east on Wellington.
