Density relieves some of the pressure that causes sprawl. But stopping sprawl is all about regulating sprawl itself.They always mention that building densely downtown is an effort to curb sprawl, but does anyone have any info on if that actually works? Does it actually promote more people living closer to the city, or is it more just lots of people live downtown AND the metro area still sprawls.
I always think of Chicago when I hear this. The downtown area is VERY densely packed, but the suburbs still go on forever too.
They're talking "Rockefeller Center" and "Canary Wharf" type developments. I think a park is kinda out of the question.WOW that is a big chunk of land! Will this affect the twin condo towers between 5th and 6th that are supposed to start this fall? Also this would be a great opportunity to build a real urban park.
I interpreted the original statement as describing the value of the location in relation to the city around it. I don't think they are expecting a Rockefeller Center type development out of this deal.They're talking "Rockefeller Center" and "Canary Wharf" type developments.

I don't mean to be rude or a grammar nazi, but would it hurt to use plurals?That's great news! I wish they will change the height limition at that area and raises it to 800+ so Seattle skyline will have high diversity of skyscrapers with different height so Seattle skyline won't looks like stair from Alki Beach.
No disrespect. I thought it just was sloppy typing because sometimes you would use plurals, and other times not. My mistake.Sorry, English is my second language. I am doing my best to have better English. Please try to read what I am trying to say it not how I say it.
