    People want more parking but don't want to see a parking lot. They want more housing but don't want buildings over two stories high and have open space. People are crazy.

    This looks like an excellent plan to cover the parking with housing. The parking lot at Whole Foods is three floors. If you want housing too, than the buildings will be 3-5 stories.

    It would be a shame to see Trolley Square continue to die and turn off it's lights.

    I am pleased with the vision and interest Mr. Semnani has shown in revilatizing the historic Trolley Square area. My family and I have enjoyed the shopping, restaurants and attractions for decades and appreciate the opportunity to enjoy a city center neighborhood without always going downtown. The project will a nice addition to the neighborhood and Mr. Semnani appears to be listening and interested in constructive thoughts and ideas from the Planning Commission, Historic Landmark Commission and, most important, residents within the neighborhood. The preliminary plans look are exciting, well thought out and beautiful!

    Seems like they are trying to do something positive to the area. I'm all for trying to make an improvement, and the developer sounds like he is willing to listen to constructive input from stakeholders. If you have concerns get involved, but give it a chance. There are a lot of positives that could come from these plans.

    Progress is what this community needs! This is economic development at its best. More people living closer to down town will help the entire downtown area and enlarge the tax base. The owner has done his best to keep the look and style of the area and provide affordable
    housing. Construction will create jobs and life to a blighted area. The community and the City should get behind this project now.

    No discussion of transportation issues?

    People still shop there!? I can't figure out why.

    If you want to link the new development to Trolley Square, use the same architectural style as Trolley Square. Who wants to live or shop in boxes?

    I lived a block East of Trolley Square for several years and had a business at Trolley Square. These proposed plans are entirely out of place and will affect the character and charm of that area and neighborhood. The architecture should at least fit in with the historical nature of that area. And I disagree at 4-5 floor buildings. 2 stories, max. What a disgrace, otherwise. I don't agree with these plans.

    That would be a great place to put one of the new homeless shelters that Ms. Mayor wants to scatter around the city! After all, this is supposed to be housing and mixed use, so why not.
