After a long, controversial battle, demolition of Baltimore's McKeldin Fountain began this past November despite there not being a plan for a permanent replacement in place. Fresno, California's Fulton Mall, a pedestrian mall designed by landscape architect Garrett Eckbo in colaboration with Victor Gruen Associates, is also currently being redeveloped to reopen the street to traffic.
