What do you think of the new Derry project?
Original post made by Rory Brown, Almanac staff writer, on Jun 5, 2007
The new project reduces the number of condos from 135 (or 50 condos per acre) to 108 (or 40 condos per acre); the height is reduced from 50 feet to 40 feet; the number of below-market-rate homes in the project is reduced from 22 to 16; and the amount of commercial space is increased from 22,525 square feet to 24,925 square feet.
The new project also includes plans for a 3,500-square-foot plaza, and an extra $2 million payment to the city.
What do you think? Is the new project too similar to the old project? Too different? Should Menlo Park residents get a vote on the original project (what was pushed during the referendum campaign)?
