I think that Palo Alto residents WOULD be willing to mount a referendum to stop this from happening. These projects are destined to make Palo Alto a less desirable place to live.
The very thought of these projects going through makes me want to put my home up for sale.

We could put some very high end office space, perhaps temporarily, into El Palo Alto itself. They did something like this at Columbus Circle in New York.
Everything is temporary from the perspective of us humans if you compare it to the age of the universe (measured in billions of years) and the nature of infinity and expanding universe (as proved by doppler effect, the redshift, and affirmed by some folk understandings of cosmology, especially the Joseph Campbell tales about reincarnation of great leaders as members of marching armies of ants, "Indras all"), yet even so for my renter's dollar I say act now before things get any worse.
