It should be taken as a positive.  It's one less surface parking lot to deal with.

What are the plans for changes to streets and intersections there?  Any?   They're pretty messy right now.  I've found out of town visitors quickly notice the whole Prudential / Acosta / San Marco thing takes F O R E V E R.  And during rush hour it backs up.   I'm curious how all that extra traffic from another 200 units.

They aren't doing anything that I'm aware of

They will probably use the existing driveway connection immediately adjacent to the railroad crossing - making it nearly impossible for apartment dwellers to turn left.
Not that I think they are going to do it, the best traffic solution would be to tie in at the existing Palm Avenue intersection - which could be signalized.
Or ... they could do a round-about at Palm, instead of a signal.

They only own the narrow driveway so nothing is going to happen at Palm Ave.  A round about there isn't physically possible.
