It will be nice to have more housing and I like the idea of a mix of residential and commercial, but the design is pretty typical, not the centerpiece I thought it might be. I would like to see more green space and the Provo River. How about a community garden? I guess money is the issue here. Too bad.

The design is nice and the designated parking stalls that are shown in front of the units as part of Product Type #1 is nice; I've seen this very successful in other projects. Parking directly along the street in Product Type #2 can be susceptible to over crowding and accessibility. The condo seems over crowded compared to the rental units; I wouldn't want to be looking directly across at another unit in close range for a condo; wouldn't mind it if it were an apartment; if the rentals and condos were swapped from an open space perspective I might find it more appealing. There doesn't appear to be enough green space in the overall project. Would like to see more distance from curb. There appears to be a lot more parking for the rental units vs the condos unless there is underground or 1st level private parking for the condos.

This project is right near the BRT. There should be way more housing involved in this project. And there should be way more office and commercial pads. There is way too much parking. Is there really a point to the BRT if we just keep putting a few sprinkles near it?

This lot borders multi-family housing already, but currently lays empty (the 845 lot). This is a great and easy way for Provo to infill and increase housing opportunities for residents.

After reading about the project at https://psomas.com/projects/the-mix-at-rivers-edge/, I think instead of crowding it with rental units, hotels, retail space, etc..., it should have townhomes and apartments, maybe with a water feature (like in Vineyard) or small park in the middle. It would encourage more walking and can also take advantage of the Provo River to the east.
Looking at what's nearby, there's already several hotels and space for retailers.

It’s unfortunate that this development is taking so long to materialize, but also sad that it seems to lack vision. I also feel that the Provo river should be made a focal point. The overall development seems underwhelming for the amount of space they have to work with. The proximity to the UVX stop doesn’t seem to be fully taken advantage of here either.
It will be nice when it’s not an eye sore but it could be so much more than what the plan appears to be.
This is a prime location for something amazing!

Too much parking. Not a "park once and walk" place. Not meeting the spirit of the "car-optional" TOD zone which should be an inviting space to walk.

This is a smart way to add more housing to the core of Provo. This type of backyard infill development should be replicated throughout the city. I support it.

While this is better than the blight that The Mix is now it is still not great. I know the river doesn't run directly through the property but this design hides the fact that the river even exists. The Provo River has the potential to be the centerpiece of our city from this area to Exchange Park. We have the opportunity to build something similar to Salida or Breckenridge were the river is an integral part of the city. Restaurant patios and open spaces could overlook the river while still providing valuable commercial space. Instead Provo continues to hide the river behind giant buildings and storage units. This is disappointing.

My statement is more of a question. Will there be at least one parking spot for each renter ? For example, if each apartment has six renters, will there be 6 parking spots for those renters? Will there also be several parking spots for each condo?
