Flaherty Collins's proposal violated FAA height restrictions. They resubmitted a conforming bid while they await FAA variance approval.

The Feds need to just stop with this. I’m sure the Flaherty and Collins project wouldn’t interfere with flight paths.

I think the neighborhood will get over the height shock (it's not that tall) because this is clearly the superior and more thoughtful project for this site.

I would be supportive of the Flaherty proposal adding a floor or two even. Its project is better and the team felt more cohesive.

The idea of a RM Park playground is new to me. Would be a great addition.

I wish they had a massing rendering. I have no problem with the height but the scale would be nice to see.

I appreciate Birt's desire to make all affordable housing but the Flaherty proposal is far superior if they can pull it off.

That was the kicker for me. Birt's selling point is affordable units but Flaherty brings more affordable units to the table

Oh I didn't even realize that. I was half paying attention to the details.

I have a good feeling Flaherty will win this

Anyone know when we can expect a choice to be made here?
