“Those windows look directly into my back yard,” Anne Davis said. And, according to the Sunnyvale Planning minutes, dated Nov 12, 2012, neither Gustav Larsson nor Glenn Hendricks requested sight line drawings or visibility views to evaluate and protect the residential neighborhood from the 560,000 square foot, 100′ tall “black wall” in their backyards as they call it.
