What is being built at that corner? We thought that the city had some sort of rules that
new 'homes' must blend in with the neighborhood. How did this - what we think is a monstrosity - ever get by the ARB and the Planning Commission? It takes two lots, looks like a battleship or an aircraft carrier - or with the tiny windows maybe a prison. If this thing can be built in the prestigious, traditional 'Old Palo Alto" neighborhood, no neighborhood is safe from architectural chaos The site was discharging underground water down the drain for a long time. You gotta see it to believe it.
