I believe the facepalm was in reference to, and correct me if I’m wrong, the thought that it would be ok to block the parks view of the downtown skyline and instead to use it as an office park amenity.

We're looking pretty much due north. This is the western building. Can't visualize where this building is to sit. Is it going to sit in a sea of parking connected to the park and street grid only by drives/sidewalks on causeways? That's sure what it looks like.

So, it looks like it is in fact very disconnected from the surrounding streets and the park. I guess that's OK Street arcing across the foreground.

Yes.

There are multiple potential designs floating around to show potential tenants the flexibility the site offers. Don’t get caught up on anything yet.
