What about a 3-4 story garage like downtown Mountain View and Stanford Shopping Center with elevators? That seems like a more efficient use of ground space.

A garage seems like a good solution. Public transit is not a great option with Caltrain's and VTA's problems and some cannot walk or cycle. The first floor might be retail space with art work on the walls. Properly sited, the ground space saved could be used for pedetrian and bike traffic, landscaping and other amenities.

Below ground parking would really work well the housing, parking garking decks would work well with the retail, bikes wools seperate places to park away from car access. Ialso one thing will create more ground space for people and events at the center.

Dealing with the geese and coots at Shoreline??!! Those are my favorite part of Shoreline. I love them, despite the gifts left by the geese. Please let them stay... that's part of the whole point of going out there! They're no more nuisance than the bicyclists (sorry, just making a point).

Don't miss out on the discussion!
