The surrounding property owners control the garage. That's because of a legally binding 2012 negotiated agreement, reached after many years in court, that says the property owners, as the Preston Center West Parking Corp., control the garage's destiny — and only with the owners' unanimous consent.
And the property owners all agree on what they want: a 300-unit apartment tower and park and restaurant on top of a parking garage built to hold more than 2,000 cars. The plan also calls for two smaller pocket parks. But moms and dads with kids and dogs would have to take an elevator to reach the actual park — a "vertical transportation system," in the words of property owner Robert Dozier, who first pitched this plan in January.
If I could sum up the bizarre and illogical nature of the PD-15 opposition to development, it would be when the Athena’s Barbara Dewberry stood up and (again) shouted that the neighborhood doesn’t want green space that will attract outsiders. Making it more worthy of eye-rolling were those who clapped in support (although a few seated in the back of me said they welcomed green space in PD-15’s concrete jungle).
