I'm getting the idea that the parking underneath is going away. Downtown will soon be impossible to find any parking.

Luxury green space?
That's called a forest, field, or park.
And the only "luxury" involved with this latest scam is the cost to the taxpaying public.
Another "urban planning" joke.
It never ends.

No more nanny state teet sucking free parking. Take the free bus.

Swope Park is a lovely green space if the National Guard was allowed to go remove all the wild animals that have ruined it.

that vibrant green space will be full of bums and litter, see e.g. Ilus Davis park and federal building lawn and fountains and just about any green space downtown. I wonder if we wouldn't be better off trading some of these "grand public square" type ideas - which aren't so grand and become dead and bummed out - for economically useful and development to get some activity and something on the tax role going. just sayin green space downtown shit there's a lot of empty already downtown we need economic activity. chasing after luxury dwellings with every abatement and TIF doesn't accomplish that, either. there seems to be an abandonment of the contempt of a central business district. thx, radish

and the comment about the giving up of the parking is true. this is the spot of the old convention hall, isn't it, the one that burned right before the democrats nominated Tilden or something. Barney Allis plaza, yeah admittedly it's not too great, but it is paid for, and it does have some parking, and what would be the purpose of frustrating motorists it would make it harder to conduct business and be a customer downtown. thx, radish, sorry for second radish musing
