If I can remember correctly, wasn't some of the concern over the drop off area and needing some extra street space? Well....since then Division has been narrowed. My only concern is that they treat the corner condition well on Washington and Division. Though blank walls are a familiar sight on Washington, it doesn't mean the tradition has to continue, and the old rendering shows just that.

I can't imagine much opposition to additional height, the new student lofts across the street is 12 stories, and probably short of the maximum height by 50 feet. At an average of 9'6" floor-to-floor in a hotel + higher ground floor and mechanical penthouse levels. We could see up to an 18 story building
