The big reveal of a proposed 355-unit 17-story rental high-rise in downtown Berkeley wasn't received too well by the Berkeley zoning commissioners last week. The Residences at Berkeley Plaza are being touted by its developers as "an environmentally sustainable, transit-oriented mixed-used development" but zoning commissioners want to see more pizzazz. "I would be freaking out if I thought that it was really going to look like that," Commissioner Elisa Mikiten said. "The task is pretty challenging, which is to do a high-rise that looks like Berkeley." [Berkeleyside]
