More over priced high density apartments? How luxurious can it be, if your windows face out to Starbucks, Chipotle, and soon to be Panera?

It was purchased in January 2012 (nearly 16 months ago), and the fire department used it for training exercises about eight months ago. So what's the hold up in tearing it down? I'm surprised it took this long for someone to light a match to it.

@Jose: First, Mountain View is still way short on housing. Second, those ammenities across the street sound pretty good to me :-)
@Betty: I agree on the time, but to be honest, everything around here takes forever to be built, mainly due to permits, envirionmental reviews, nimbys, and other hold ups. If you look around there are a LOT of properties on El Camino in limbo. What about the former foster freeze/dairy bell (can't remember which) that is STILL abandoned over there after years and years.
