^What's that one? I like that it's a mix of housing types and heights.

That's a nice configuration. I thought a lot about townhomes with garden apartments or offices below and an adu in back. It's interesting people accept townhomes now because I don't think they did until the last few years.

I don't know if there's enough acreage to do a square of townhomes with a courtyard in the middle. Trying to keep trees. We are baking.

I don't see many single family homes unless they are infill in another area and they would be very narrow.

I'm hoping to have alternatives for sale in another part of the neighborhood, such as urban flats, co-ops, etc. It would be nice to have something people could buy at an affordable price point as their first home. Even townhomes will be out of which of many people and it would be nice to have a variety of options.

I have also asked about the property at 3rd and Gillis for the gas company is storing pipes. I will follow up if I find out if it can be acquired.
