You asked … “Why no spotlights on Flatiron Bldg?”

14 Dec

Testing spotlight/floodlights on the Flatiron Bldg.

A community member asks, “I am wondering why the lights on the Flatiron Bldg have not been on this past week?”

We answer: Good question, since those floodlights were designed to illuminate the mural and brighten the mural garden/on-leash pet area at night.

The City Parks, Forestry and Recreation Dept tells us that, when the spotlights were tested, there was considerable stray light washing on adjacent residential buildings, which can prompt complaints. Although they tried to re-aim the lights a few weeks ago, they are now working with the manufacturer to resolve these technical issues, hopefully in the new year. In the meantime, the spotlights will be left off to avoid discomfort or annoyance to neighbours.

    Why are all the light posts not working in the evening along front in the park? And no salt bring thrown down so it’s a complete sheet of ice not to mention dangerous

    Interesting response. I am in a residential building facing the building and was not bothered – loved them. They could put them on a timer. Hope they get it resolved. Thanks for the response
