The southern tip of Gallery Row should soon look a whole lot friendlier. The city broke ground today on a four-month project to replace the asphalt median at 9th and Main streets with a colorful replacement featuring trees and flowers. The triangular site, roughly 115 feet long and 30 feet wide, sits just south of Angelique Cafe in the confluence of Spring and Main streets. The design is intended to compliment Angelique while not taking away the eatery's southern views.

The project adds more than just greenery to the intersection. Spherical lights will add a bit of nighttime vibrance to a spot that's got potential to become an evening destination. On the corner of 9th and Main L'Angolo Cafe and Woodspoon have dinner hours, as does Tiara Cafe, located just east on 9th. The Fashion District BID will be picking up the electricity bill.
