Roof top park and balconies are nice but in no way should replace actual open space elements that the City is supposed to mandate.

Will this village improve the city's housing shortage or will it keep adding more workers than new homes? Is it really a village or mostly another office park? The amount of office is said to be lowered but what is the new net contribution towards solving the big housing shortage?

Located close to the baylands, will this dome cause light pollution that is bad for wildlife?
