A high end hotel would be great in that spot! More tax revenues for PA, and probably some private security presence. What's not to like about it?

poori,

have you noticed that Palo Alto has a lot of units for people with low and moderate income?

Check the Palo Alto Housing Corporation website.

There are other communities around here where your message would make more sense.
