    Will Streetsblog do a post some time discussing the issues around the Casden Sepulveda project and the Millennium Hollywood? I see a lot of links to angry City Watch pieces about them, which gives me a knee-jerk defensive reaction on behalf of increased density near transit stations, but I believe there could be legitimate concerns about building huge structures right near freeway onramps as well. I just don’t see these legitimate concerns (yet) being expressed in a manner that discusses actual studies and considers both pro and con.

  • The Broadway plan isnt making sense to me.

    The streetcar will run soutbound ONLY right? So why will there be on south lane and two north lanes? Instead of one north lane, one south lane and one south transit only lane.

    Also, the plan includes nothing for bikes?
