Old Town needs to keep its charm, that is one of the reasons why many of us love the area so much! If there were residential options added, I would really like to see something that is in theme with the neighborhood. More townhouses or low-rise buildings that don't block the view/light in certain areas. We need buildings that complement the charm of Moody church and capture the history within Old Town. I'm all for updating the area but adding a high rise to any of these parcels would look out of place and it's not really needed.

Do not go up. Again, do not go up. I'm already upset with your choice of architect who will no doubt present some post-post-post-modern pile of nonsense that only one critic pretends to like and only does so to simultaneously impress and look down upon their friends at dinner who "just don't get it" while secretly not understanding anything at all but scared that if they don't acknowledge they like it they'll be found to be a fraud, while the rest of us will have to live with that nonsense plopped into the middle of the dominant intersection of our neighborhood and stare at it every day. The least you can do for us is not allow this post-post-post-modern nonsense to dominate Old Town's morning shadows for the next 60 years. I don't really believe any involved in this project will actually listen to any of this at all and this is all a distraction and a facade to pretend you care while you cover your real plans which were already decided long ago. But, I admit, my cynicism has been overwhelming lately and I don't intend offense. Best of luck!

The new building on the corner of Clark and North across from Latin High School is appropriate for the neighborhood. Anything higher will be sinful.

Hardware store, branch library

Another library branch might be a good addition since schools are close by. Also the nearest library branches are pretty far away. A small library with a community garden could be useful.
