  1. This isn’t just any old office building; it’s the Warfield Theater. What happens to the theater/concert venue?

    • The scope is only the remodeling of interiors on floors 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The other floors and the theater are not in the proposed project scope and would be unaltered by this proposal.

    • In the diagram you can see it’ll remains and it’s out of scope for the project.

  2. Great that more housing with some being available for low income people. Also great that bicycle parking is included.

  3. I’m glad to see more housing being built in this area, especially without compromising the external part of the building.

  4. 25,314 square feet seems like a low yield of residential area for a conversion of this scale. That 4th floor would make a big difference.
