Palo Alto developer Chop Keenan is willing to build another parking garage on High St. if the city will allow him to build a four-story building at High and Hamilton (where only a two-story building would otherwise be allowed.)
Are the additional parking spaces (about 100) for downtown shoppers a good trade-off for allowing a larger building than the current zoning allows?
Or should the city council pass up the parking and let Keenan go forward with just a two-story building?
How do you feel about these "public benefit" projects where more development is allowed in exchange for parking or other benefits?
