Well, the free parking is stupid, that's for sure. I just think the overall design is pretty good. They could have easily just stuck a 3 story building on top of a garage and done this entire project in about half the height. It looks like there is a lot of finished interior space that is for architecture and aesthetics only. The leasable office space looks like it's only on the top three floors. Most of that space that wraps around the garage looks like public atriums etc. I'm sure it will turn out very different if built. But yeah, the city should make it known that free public parking is not a priority. I'm not even sure the surrounding hotels would be thrilled with a free parking option guests could take advantage of when they probably charge $20 a night.
