Guy Silverman of Street Sense stated that:
- Based on feedback from residents and council, they plan on at least LEED Gold for this project and are considering Platinum
- With about 18,000 square feet of retail, we can expect small stores and there probably will not be an anchor tenant
- During the design phase they will be sensitive to the needs of Perry Street residents who back up to the 3200 block redevelopment. These concerns were so strong that they are actually incorporated into the Mixed Use Town Center Plan update that was issued in 2010. (The design below reflects a great deal of massing at the rear of the property, creating the potential for looming over and/or shading homes.)
- They will consider expanding the parking garage to add capacity that serves the entire town center area (which some consider underparked because the existing commercial stock dates from streetcar days.)
