South Group Gets Good Ink in the Times

The Times' Roger Vincent has a good profile of the South Group in today's business section. South Group broke some important new ground with its cluster of projects, and the article notes that the variances it gained are now largely the template for guidelines put out by the Planning Department's Urban Design Studio.

Particularly dear to my heart is their work to get out from street widening requirements, and instead put the money into pedestrian improvements.
