McMobil plan needed for Hyde Park’s growth

To the Editor:

I very much support the high-rise at the McMobil site because I believe the whole city needs to continue to grow up, not out. The suburban lifestyle exists for those who want it, and the urban lifestyle for those who want it. We will not create a vibrant city by shunning development, towers and retail under the dishonest fears of parking and traffic.

For what it’s worth, I live in HP, do not own a car, formerly commuted to work by bus and now work from home.
