The design competition of the AIDS Memorial planned for Greenwich Village garnered a lot of press, but little attention was paid to the design of the park that it would be part of. When Rudin Management made a deal in 2011 to convert the old St. Vincent's Hospital into condos, the developer promised to build a public park on a triangular plot of land, and this week, ground was broken on the new green space, reports the Journal. The design team at M. Paul Friedberg & Partners also released the first renderings, showing a park with small grassy areas, lots of trees, winding walkways, and a play area for kids. The 16,000-square-foot open space is on Seventh Avenue between Greenwich Avenue and West 12th Street, and it will be called West Village Park. The memorial, designed by Studio a+1, will be located at the park's tip.
