Three words:

Security. Risk. Management.

This is MUCH better than you'll find out on 1604, with a vastly superior design, plays to the local vernacular rather than just being "any city USA" and we should expect the federal government to foot the bill for a local project (e.g. the interaction with the river should and will be payed for by local governmental entities and nonprofits as part of the larger redevelopment of San Pedro Creek). Having green space around the building is actually quite nice in an urban core that is almost entirely still devoid of large public parks. Try to see the positives in things, people, rather than just focusing on the negatives (negatives that I just can't see with this project anyway).
