I think it looks great. I agree that there appears to be too much surface parking.
Yeah that is what I figured.
It is certainly an interesting plan, and although it has flaws is probably an interesting vision... but there are very few parts of that that are within the city's purview to build, so it is hard to get too excited, since plans written that require other people to step up to the plate with money are kind of only worth the paper they are written on. Having said that... it may stimulate a developer to latch on to this, which is a good thing and I am sure is part of the point of the exercise. Regardless, while site plan is sort of under the visioning exercises control, the look/design of those buildings will not be anything like the drawing since that will be up to the developer.
