I don't think people would want to pay for a lot when they can park on the street for free. One thing I do know...the neighborhood doesn't need anymore more condos. It would have been nice to keep the stable area some green space rather than stuff more over priced, poorly made condos (that aren't needed) in there. We just don't need more.
i'm curious why you think LEED/passive house certified, modular homes would be poorly made? stables isn't a tower development.
we don't need people driving like idiots through the middle of our 'hood more than they already do, which is why i think a car park (ideally, with 1 or 2 small commercial spaces at ground level!) should go near the el, or some other girard/spring garden location that would serve more purpose for commuters. plopping something like that in the heart of the neighborhood takes away from the community, and makes the place even more transient/destination oriented. we should be encouraging residents to not have cars, anyways.
