Finally, we get to see what the Design District will (more or less) look like in all its blazing future glory. Here are images from the Master Plan submitted to the city for review by the Planning and Zoning board on Wednesday.

They also plan to have a lot of roof gardens on various levels, connected by staircases and cascading green features. This all seems wonderful, but just a tad optimistic. After all, they've got to put the AC condensers somewhere...
