Instead, attacking a lowrise development for what it's not (a highrise) strikes me as knee jerk and dishonest. Are they going to be calling for the demolition of the existing 12 story tower a block away?

I have to side with everyone else here enjo - this building is a block north at 33rd - It appears to be at least 45-50 feet+. NIMBYism lives.

On another note they are rehabbing the old Holiday Theater building a little further east. It is looking fantastic.

The new yogurt shop next door.
