Location was wrong for TWG project

March 5, 2016

Judging by the materials filed with the Metropolitan Development Commission, neighbors opposed the project based on the architectural quality, inadequate parking, excessive height, and excessive density [TWG calls off plan for $39M Meridian-Kessler project, IBJ.com March 1].

Neighbors’ alternative development ideas, as presented downtown, to the Meridian Kessler Neighborhood Association, and in various message boards, were pretty diverse and moderate. Nothing about just single-family homes.

Words like “transient” were used in contrast to “long term,” not as some class warfare battle cry.

This is a good example of a project that was wrong for the location.

A different type of project would likely be welcome on the AT&T site. The TWG project would likely be welcome elsewhere.
