According to one blogger whose opinion I trust implicitly, this Daily Journal article about the proposed monster project at the original, historic post office is a pretty accurate description of the meeting
The design of a large housing and retail project which some hope will redevelop the former Burlingame post office into a landmark attraction drew criticism from city officials during an initial review session.
Burlingame council members expressed concerns regarding whether the proposal to build 50,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor of the building at 220 Park Road, under 128 condominiums spread across the top four stories would blend with the surrounding character of downtown.
“This isn’t cutting it at all,” said Mayor Ann Keighran. “This isn’t Burlingame.”
The headline called it a "tepid" city response, but it sounds more like a vigorous city council response to me. Time to get back to the drawing board and respect the surroundings, the historic nature of the building and the whole block and address what we really need downtown--which ain't 100+ units of housing. As another blogger noted on this earlier post, the fact that Stanley Lo doesn't feel he has any problems finding parking downtown is pretty special.
