The pro-Bergamot editorial (“Editorial: Planning for the future,” Feb. 4) and architects’ letter (“Bergamot Village embodies LUCE,” Room for a View, Feb. 4) are well-written and thoughtful. I wonder, though, why neither piece mentions where the water will come from to support the “inevitable” growth. Could the weather create a pause in this predicted growth? Would Hines feel it was unfair to be asked to postpone Bergamot until the reservoirs are full? Is it fact or just opinion that all the new tenants and workers will want to shower, flush and drink? Like all of us, Hines is probably hoping it will rain soon, and in buckets, so its tenants won’t be left high (about seven stories, according to current plans) — and dry.
