From OPCL.org:

Breaking News: The developers of the Marlin Bay Apartment complex have sent a letter to the city withdrawing the project from the City Council agenda. We support their request to withdraw the application and we thank the developers and owners for listening to the community’s concerns and reconsidering the potential redevelopment of those lots. We look forward to working with them on finding a mutual solution to this and other projects within the community.
