Do it. Do it.
Does anyone know if the project is on North or South Rengstorff.
I'm guessing it's 333 *North* Rengstorff. The Community Development Department Summary in the city's budget for 08/09 mentions:
Process a rezoning and development project for a proposed 64 unit project at 333 North Rengstorff Avenue.
(Link to budget: Web Link)
Is a 34 units/acre development really "high density"? Compared to projects recently built and approved in Mountain View, "high density" doesn't seem like an accurate description to me.
(Yes, it is twice as dense as what's there now, but does THAT what defines high density, or is the absolute number of dwelling units per acre?)
In any event, I'm pleased with the Council's decision.
We need to stop adding to the density of Mountain View. When will it end?
Good. I'm buying a house but it's in San jose. All the houses in MV are expensive and they are these post-war wrecks that need to be torn down. Ditto for all of the other "condos" that are just old rotting apartment conversions from the 50s.
Didn't Prometheus say that anything less than 61 units/acre would not be financially feasible? But here it is 34 units/acre? It seems that developers are quick to say that "Anything less than <insert number here> is not financially feasible".
Don't miss out on the discussion!
