Oh, and they're also proposing to hang their balconies on 11th Avenue 100% into the public ROW. Solhem is a chronic offender on this one, and somehow the city keeps signing off on it. If you want your units to have balconies, design your building to accommodate them on the property you own. It's just that easy.

The city is going to be kicking themselves in 10 years about all of these terrible site plans they approved during this boom.

Somehow recommended for approval by staff.
They're proposing a nine story project in a zone that allows 10 stories by right, asking for no variances or CUPs except for the loading zone being in the street, which was specifically requested by the planning commission. Why wouldn't staff recommend approval?

I have to agree on this point, especially. A fine upgrade to this barren surface lot in the NEAR TERM, but a terrible precedent to have to undo/upgrade/work around in the LONG TERM. With integrated parking at ground level, and the bizarre Z-shape, this just isn't pragmatic foresight. It also seemingly preempts any development in that Day Block small parking lot.

Looked like fences up around the site for this one.
