(KSL News) A proposal to redevelop Trolley Square is meeting some stiff opposition from Salt Lake City's planning commissioners.

The Deseret Morning News reports Trolley Square's owners want to update the shopping center. But residents and city planners are worried a planned 52,000-square-foot Whole Foods grocery store would block views of historic streets.

Developers say the building is big so it can accommodate a new parking structure on top of it. They say groundwater prevents underground parking.

The proposal has been given tentative approval.
