Towers at Alma Bowl
The community reviews the architecture
by Miles Aroundt
Members of the Coalition and of Washington neighborhoods gave feedback, which generally favored traditional, ornamented design styles such as Italian Renaissance over austere modern styles. Several people cited the vintage heritage of the surrounding neighborhoods. Many emphasized the imperative to be pedestrian-friendly and transit-oriented, and suggested placing the building's main entrance on the north side, facing (and encouraging pedestrian use of) the light-rail station, community parks, trails and the Willow Street Business District.
Members also noted that the process needed improvement, and recommended that City Planning notify users of the Tamien Light Rail station and help neighborhoods notify their concerned citizens about meetings well in advance. City Planning agreed to these measures.
