At the time, there was much discussion about what should happen. The YMCA had decided to give up its plans of owning the whole block when it sold the YMCA mansion at Morse & Emory and was willing to trade some of its remaining empty lot for parking space behind the Wright residence.
The biggest issue was the large number of old growth Redwood, Oak and Elm trees that were going to be cut down and if the new homes would fit in.
Thankfully the neighbors spoke up, and a compromise was reached where the LeBarons and DeMattei Construction agreed to move and restore the residence to its former glory. The catch was that she'd have to shed most of the acreage to make room for 2 new homes and 22 YMCA parking spots.
Here is how the 2 new homes fit in today (2014) with the 744 Morse Wright Home on the far right.
