Beautiful timeless design and it will age gracefully with the neighborhood.

I agree that the design looks nice, and the bike path is a nice quality-of-life element. You know my one question.

"The existing Borden building will be redeveloped primarily for office use, along with some commercial and retail uses."

The residential building will also have ground floor retail.

Wow. I really like that design. I'd love to see some more renderings of it.

That is a really, really nice design.

However, Ashby is a smaller width street which also functions as the parent dropoff access for SAISD's Hawthorne Academy, which you can see in the first two photos of the existing conditions. I personally know (my kids finished there just a couple years ago) that the road gets completely jammed at this area. The proposed western entry will be frustrating for apartment residents leaving in the morning as it is directly across from the school's entry with parents trying to turn into the dropoff from both directions. The eastern entry shouldn't be a problem unless they want to go west on Ashby.

That said... the project is very nice, and I hope they can find a way to solve the traffic challenges.

Love this project and really hope it happens. I wish they didn't have parking fronting the river. Wouldve been nice to make a better interaction between this development and the river. That's a small thing though and overall so great to see this proposed.

It’s understandable that the parking is like that since they’re leaving and renovating the Borden building and there’s no other place for on site parking.

I would think that the parking in the new building would be on the first two or three levels of the highway side too. I wouldn't want to live on the lower floors facing the highway.

I believe it’ll be underground parking.
