Tall highrises aren’t harmful. Tall residential buildings surrounded by grassy lawns free of neighborhood retail or services so large numbers of people can’t walk to a restaurant or bank or drycleaner or cafe and have to drive to such places are bad. In the case of the Park Merced plan, such businesses may be salted throughout the plan area but it doesn’t look like it on the renderings and it looks like the planners were more concerned with the greenery than such carbon-sparing convenience services.
