    Not to include at least some parking in your building design. The amount of money people are willing to pay for a parking space is amazing--those tall condo buildings on Burnside and in the Pearl were charging up the wazoo for  a spot in the parking garage. You could probably buy two houses in Rochester NY for what one slim piece of concrete is going for in the Pearl!

    And parking has always been hell in those neighborhoods, the streets are so narrow and it's asshole to elbow pretty much all the time. Nothing much to be done about it, really.
