'Return of the lumpoo trees and fireflies'
Above is a detail of a plan for redevelopment around the Prasumen Fort area downtown. It envisions bringing back the lumpoo trees (which the Banglumpoo area was named for) and the fireflies that are said to nest in its branches. This idea entails extending the green areas from the fort park down along the klong and integrating Wat Sangwet (at the top) into the design.
This plan is similar to the official plan, but the official plan also insists on demolishing the historic Kurusapa Printing House/Wat Sangwech Typing School (the red rectangles to the right of the fort).

Siam Square has long needed a makeover that unifies its various shophouses and fixes its broken pavement. This plan above eliminates the ground-level parking in Siam Square in favor of broad walkways for shoppers and overhead parking.
