Given that yet another storefront has gone empty in the mall, it's probably important that this application be made a priority.
The new application fits within the guidelines established last year for the redevelopment of this property, and reflects the long term goals found in the DNV Official Community Plan.
On an aesthetic standpoint the proposal does a nice job of continuing the "Mountain Village" feel found in the Library complex, and recent developments on the opposite side of 27th Street. It will be nice to lose the 1970's shopping mall to an updated look that fits our outdoor oriented locale.
And of course the residential buildings are capped at only twelve stories.
