A four-story 285-unit complex on the site of Safeway? I hope they know what they're doing. Safeway isn't exactly the nicest of buildings to look at, but this sounds like it has the potential to be worse, and sounds like trying to pack people in like sausages to get the most out of the real estate.

MTnView does NOT need one more housing unit.... We are FULL... Why in hell does our council constantly try to cram more people into our city.. For gosh sakes, we can NOT bring the whole damn world into MtnView....

Let us concentrate on quality of life here, spend our dollars on maybe supporting our LOCAL students, on our events in the city, on LOCAL items....

Luv my city...
