For its intended purposes the building will undoubtedly blend into existing structures, throttle population growth in the area, and maintain the Marina’s signature flat skyline. The question remains whether a moderately taller building, which would add more homes, incentivize on-site affordable housing, and motivate a slimmer higher quality design, is more in tuned with the today’s housing shortage, stratospheric home prices, and barren night-time streets.
