This pleasant, well-landscaped courtyard was recently renovated, with a good balance of trees, shrubs, lawn and pedestrian paving. The current materials palette should be maintained.

Priority rating: 3

Given the recent renovation work in this courtyard, it is in good condition. The older Silver Maple that was kept as the focal point is worthy of preservation and should be monitored for health. The palette of this courtyard should be maintained in future replacements. The wetness of the southeast corner should be investigated and corrected before it becomes a serious problem.
