One new building would be located on Huntington Avenue and would not exceed a height of approximately 291 feet. Two new buildings would be at the intersection of Belvidere and Dalton Streets, one of which would not exceed a height of approximately 251 feet and the other of which would not exceed a height of approximately 512 feet and both of which would contain underground parking. The pavilion building would be located near the intersection of Huntington Avenue and Belvidere Streets and would not exceed a height of approximately 35 feet.

Serious question: what the fuck is this? Didn't we already do this? Wasn't it approved? Haven't they just been waiting for warm weather to start?
