Excelsior Redevelopment Part 2

The Sun Sailor's coverage of the proposal to develop the southern edge of the Commons as well as an adjacent downtown block provides more information and a balanced perspective on the topic. It can be found at:

Figuring the value of a prime, downtown, Lake Minnetonka lot is still the big question, and I maintain that that corner of the Commons is hardly a brown lot in need of revitalization. One the other hand, converting a city-owned parcel to a piece of tax-generating property would help Excelsior's finances, and expanding parking through private development and without taxing residents is the only fair way to do it.

Thoughts? Comments?
