Adios Midtown ARCO Gas Station

It has been an eyesore for years, so I view this as progress. What I don't know is what the plans are for that land parcel.
I would have loved to see it built out with a city owned and operated gymnasium, to accmodate the demand by volleyball and basketball teams that have to go outside of Palo Alto to play many of their games--we just don't have the capacity here town to meet the requirements of such teams and leagues.
I suspect the developer of the property has other plans for the place. Anybody know what those plans are?

The only things developers are building these days are ugly condos and box houses.

If you read this forum regularly, as an honored blogger should, you would have seen this recent thread which answers your questions.

Thanks for the information. I do have a day job and cannot track every thread.
I am of the opinion that the plan as described is a bad use of the site. Just another example of the developers having different incentives and motivations that may not be in the best interests of the community at large.
