The Towers of Phase 1, all of which are massive, the largest of which is over 1,400′ tall. Why spend so much time on buildings, because these have become the dominant feature of the downtown area of a modern urban landscape, almost entirely determined by the human aesthetic and engineering, the near polar opposite of the wild native landscape in which we are ideally one of countless other players. If we are to live in such human concentrations then this is probably the best/least disruptive form of development. The same population spread across a suburban development would require many times more acreage, land that would also be pulled from the native landscape and serve relatively little biological function…however as living organisms ourselves we still require an active connection to the sustaining living world, both for our sake and the health of all organisms. Though our cities isolate us we must remain connected.
