Ummm, hardly the point of escarpment, bay views being preserved. But actually, thanks for making the point about needing to ensure design standards even at the street level. A blank wall with zero opportunities for social interaction at street level is terrible design. Vibrancy needs people coming and going at all hours of the day and if the Television City were located at this location it would miss out on the opportunity to engage the street because it doesn't address street life other than a front door for residents to enter and then turn their back on their neighbours. Street interaction requires the equivalent of a front-porch -- this design is a glass wall with the first residents on the 4th floor or higher.
