That's a really good point.There is lots of hard money moving to/from the building in this area, plus some underground parking already which is I think why they're going aboveground for this.
Is it feasible for the USPS "sell" their ramp to the Fed, who then leases back spaces to the post office? There is plenty of room but non-USPS employees can't park there for security. The Fed doesn't appear to have a similar rule since their proposed new ramp is open to the public. Surely USPS employees ought be allowed to park in a ramp owned by another federal agency, especially if it is only open to federal employees (?)
From the looks of it. There is a good amount of space to expand the existing parking ramp as well. wrap it with some housing or office or retail or whatever. In return we would get that proposed ramp site to be housing or office or something actually good. AND provided the Reserve bank would give up a bit of that green space out front so we could turn that into a nice connection to the riverfront I'd be 1000% game.
Given since the urban park idea really fizzled out, having a connection to the riverfront from the west side instead of the east side don't seem that much different. I know, file this as never gonna happen so not gonna give it much more thought besides a would be cool looking into.
