A.C.O.R.N. believes that Shockoe Center, as presented, is not an appropriate project for the City of Richmond's most historic and hallowed ground. We join the community in questioning the following aspects of the Highwoods Properties' plans for Shockoe Center: If the bond projections fall short, will the city and state taxpayers end up saddled with the debt What are Highwoods Properties' archaeological plans for the inevitable discovery of Richmond's buried history Does this project truly meet all the challenges of frequent flooding in the Shockoe Valley How does this project improve intermodal transportation, and, in particular, affect federal funding secured for use at Main Street Station What is Highwoods Properties' succession plan for Shockoe Center Has thought been given to making the stadium entity serve multiple purposes Is not the overall Shockoe Center concept-- including the baseball stadium-- more compatible with the scale, massing and overall urban form of Boulevard Gateway, Highwoods Properties' other City project, on the Boulevard near the Diamond How does Highwoods Properties propose to respond to, and prevent, if possible, the adverse impacts of Shockoe Center on the surrounding neighborhoods, including light, noise and traffic
