Thanks.

Yeah, short of reducing lanes on Woodward (which seems like it will never happen in my lifetime), the only other way to make it more human-scaled is to build large buildings right to the street. I'm sure you noticed, but the setbacks of the museums and the like in the cultural center (and other areas along Woodward) can make the thing feel a mile wide. Just look at how wide the tiny Woodward Place at Brush Park make the street feel.
