We met with the Highland Park Neighborhood Association, a strong association for this historic neighborhood, to hear their concerns.
We made modifications to the design, and we went back to them … We got unanimous approval and a standing ovation, and the reason was — we listened. We really listened to them and reacted accordingly.Mike Tillman
