WHAT DO YOU WANT HERE?
Last night was just further proof that midtown needs to incorporate a good-sized public space at Parcel 5. To put a half-baked tower and Performing Arts Center there would be a disservice to the potential of that space and to the residents of this city. Parcel 5 is already an outdoor performance space. It is already a gathering space. It is already a connecting point. It is the heart of our downtown. I would like to see us continue to put on events like this on the South side of Parcel 5, as well as have a mixed-use building on Main Street. (*ahem* Gallina's plan) What would you like to see here?
