Over the course of a number of meetings with the community in a Design Charrette, several principles emerged that we hoped would provide the basis for any new design of a significant site in the area.
The massing of any new project is as follows:
- Buildings should be located as far back as possible against the hills;
- The highest buildings are to be located in the back to prevent view obstruction, and taper down to the perimeter, where heights should not exceed 2 stories.
- Buildings should be sited at the back in order to open up the area along the shoreline to public enjoyment.
