We had a little bit of media coverage in The Stranger. Regarding the project, the story includes:
“It has the potential to be a behemoth,” says city council member Tom Rasmussen.
“The vast amount of parking is inconsistent with what we have been trying to create in the city, which are walkable neighborhoods,” says Rasmussen,
“I think it is inconsistent with the city’s plan of building around light-rail stations,” says city council member Richard McIver, who lives in the nearby Mount Baker neighborhood. The project, he says, could drain housing and retail away from the areas in Rainier Valley where the city has already planned for new construction, such as the Othello and McClellan Street light-rail stations.
