That is the ugliest frickin' building I've ever seen. Someone's finally managed to out-do Wescoe's foulness.

I agree with the Ugly Building comment and as an Retired Architect would like to see a more modern design. However I do think the project as a whole would be good for the community.

I'm all for the rights of the property owners to develop the property as they see fit.

I am against any public funding or tax subsidies to develop the property. The city cannot be left on the hook for this.

Guess what cynic, what a property owner does to develop a site has an impact on the entire neighborhood not to mention the immediate neighbors. The property isn't an island, it's part of a bigger picture. Hope you never have a monstrosity like that in your neighborhood or backyard.

It was nice to see Dever asking Fritzel's lawyer straight out how best to get around regulations and approve this thing.

All private funding please. Should not be a problem if the bank sees it as a worthy project. City should not be in the business of funding private ventures. The rosy economic projections were performed by an interested investor.
