On Nov. 1 as Sundance Square Plaza made its long-awaited debut.
Thirty years of planning and two years of site preparation met with a sunny morning as elected officials, project architects and everyday folk applauded the newly opened cultural crossroads bordered by Third and Fourth, and Commerce and Houston streets.

“It needed to be great in its own right,” Campbell said.
