^^^ I'm a fan. We need more mixed-income housing to prevent people from becoming victims of gentrification.

I get wanting to save the administrative building, but the building serves no real purpose. Build a community center on the ground floor and then build up. We need amenities in this area and we don't have anything. We need a pharmacy, a small grocery store, more food options that aren't the expensive restaurants on Alamo. They could easily enforce a developer to build with the facade of the admin building intact. But we need to not pretend it's historical.

Side note, what kind of design are you working on?
It's an adaptive reuse project for the administration building there (repurposing into a community center, which was its original function). Not the most exciting structure, but I do think it could be made into a nice amenity for the community.

That sounds awesome! If you're allowed to share it here eventually, I bet everyone would love to see it!

I think it would work as a community center then build on top of the structure.
