This is looking like a best-case scenario at this point. CFA is going to use almost the entire facility, with a bit left over to rent out. They’ll bring a lot of employees downtown, presumably about enough to offset the loss of Martha Jefferson employees, and the nature of their business means that it won’t change the character of the neighborhood. Better still, CFA is a non-profit that has the reputation of acting like one (not all do), which is to say that they could well keep the interests of the neighborhood in mind. Everybody wins.
I get a kick that the PC was reviewing the design as the Entrance Corridor Review Board. If that location is part of an entrance corridor, only the Downtown Mall and East Market aren’t part of an entrance corridor!
