A reader alerts us to this Wilson Yard mention in the New York Times and writes:
"Allison Arieff had a few bizarre complimentary words on Wilson Yard in her opinion column published in today's New York Times. It's as though she didn't even look at the context of the development. She must have taken one look at a rendering, picked up on the fact that it wasn't a suburban mall, and figured that was enough for her to praise it.
From the article:
"The project dispenses with the notion of a freestanding mall and conceives instead of a walkable, mixed-use community. Key to their design is LEED silver certification, open space and multi-modal access (not just cars but rail, transit and pedestrian)."
The multi-modial access isn't a key of the development, it's built into the context of the neighborhood. Crazy."
