I actually had to watch a good chunk of the 04/14 meeting video to find out that the developer's proposal was made during the 03/24 meeting. But I knew there would be a payoff because alley/street vacations adjacent to a known proposal (48 East in this case) or to a surface lot (which was also the case) are almost always for a big project.

The Planning Commission seems mixed on this and are going to hear this for a third time. Someone at the meeting also said vacations have to go to City Council for final approval. If that's the case, we will get a good idea how the new City Council feels about downtown development.
