Is the chamber relevant any more? How many members do they have left? What percentage of Palo Alto businesses belong to the chamber? Imagine all of the hard working nonprofits that could have used that subsidized office space?

The CoC moves so often that its people have sleeping bags instead of desks.

In the interest of balance to Mr. MacKenzie's comments I offer the following view. The "101 Lytton" project may yet succeed in providing a pedestrian friendly, inviting environment at ground level, a "gateway", when the final touches are in place, but what we see going up is a montrous, out of scale building, severe and overpowering in its visual impact, completely out of touch with its location in Downtown Palo Alto and the surrounding neighborhood and commercial area. With its 70 foot tower it is a monument to itself. The "101" fits - it belongs in an office park off Bayshore Freeway.
