I want the Gulfstream restored, but it must be done right. I don't want a huge, unsightly building next to it. I understand the builders need to build something adjacent to the hotel to recoup their investment, but it has to be of limited scale and blend aesthetically together with the surrounding structures.
109 apartment units is too many. I would prefer any new building to be four stories or fewer, five at the absolute most and fewer than 60 new apartment units. It's alright with me to add the proposed extra hotel units.
I am also concerned about how there will be sufficient parking for the hotel guests, new apartment residents, and current residents in the adjacent condominium without taking part of the park away. This is not acceptable.
This restoration project should not be approved to start unless and until these issues are addressed sufficiently. The city residents should be comfortable with the proposal.
