I am writing on behalf of myself and wife to join those opposed to the Wizer Block project. The reasons are so well documented by others; however, this project clearly detracts from the Lake Oswego culture and force-fits a mini Pearl District in our downtown village.
The love of downtown will be shifted away from the current residents and to the tenants of the new building if it is allowed to be constructed. We already have empty retail locations in Lake View Village, and the mass of the building will destroy the reason why so many of us decided to live our lives and spend our hard-earned money in the village of Lake Oswego.
The new tenants will be at the expense of the existing residents, as I know many of us are prepared to relocate if this project is commissioned as is.
