I think this will be a positive addition to Burnside Gorge...

This seems like such an obvious slam-dunk. I wonder how much NIMBY push-back there will be or how many concessions the city will ask the developer for?

As far as the amenities go, this is condo-quality. The urban agriculture area on the roof sounds pretty cool.

The CALUC meeting saw overwhelming opposition to the proposal, primarily around density/massing concerns.  See the summary here:  http://www.burnsideg...l - 2019.08.pdf

This looks like a great project for the neighborhood, with a good number of units, with a large chunk of those being 2- and 3-BRs, plus the other features. On the parking issue, the 8, 9, and 11 routes go by there on Gorge Rd, which I think slightly reduces the need for per-unit parking; perhaps a dedicated Modo space or two would be worthwhile additions.

 

As for the density and massing concerns, those are like the FREE space on a bingo card - they're always going to be used in objection.
