“Building Scale - Buildings shall be scaled to utilize the developable opportunities of the lot, within the minimum and maximum Floor Area Ratio standards for the district. It is expected that as the proportion of lot space used for landscaping, parking, services, or amenities goes up, the height of the building will increase to create an overall sense of massing consistent with the urban, neighborhood context.” (Master Plan, pg. 67)

First Projects

Construction has begun at the site. The first requests for variances from the original agreement are in, and not surprisingly they urge the City to give them permission to go HIGHER, and put in more buidling while removing open space.
