The most recent of the bi-monthly meetings, in March, ran short and was relatively subdued. There were few questions about project operations and impacts, and very little for the project developers and arena operators to present.
The agenda, at right, is completely vague, since "Updates" could mean anything.
- what's the project schedule, given unspecified delays?
- what about the effort to sell (parts of) three building sites (B12, B13, B3)?
- when will plans regarding Site 5 proceed, and when will the lawsuit be resolved? and when will the environmental review start?
- will plans regarding B15 (aka 664 Pacific, the building with a school) move forward now that the legal case stalling progress seems resolved?
- can they ensure that the affordable housing will be built by 2025, as promised?
- will that below-market housing, in configuration, meet the long-promised goals, or remain shifted toward middle-income apartments?
- will the 421-a reform lead to more market-rate condos or is more needed?
- why is the bicycle lane on Vanderbilt Avenue outside #550Vanderbilt blocked so much
