It should be noted that the architect for Centre Place next door only had two points against the rezoning;

1) Centre Place has south-facing windows over the St. David's site so natural light would be blocked. There is no right to natural light downtown and the rezoning made no changes to the setback requirements which in downtown is encouraged to be zero.

2) He also claimed the developer did not contact the owner of Centre Place. This was shot down by the trustee of the church who said not only were there discussions but there will be more as the design finalizes.

The rezoning basically only changed the land-uses permitted. With the exception of sidewalk setback, the allowable building envelope and height remain the same as before.
