  1. Geez, how does a 12-story apt. bldg. fit within the context of this neighborhood? Why not just go for it and build a 30-story tower?? ☹

    • Stop being a NIMBY.

      This is already a very dense neighborhood, and although it is dominated primarily by buildings around 6-stories, there is major demand for housing.

      There are two subway lines within a 5 minute walk which makes this a great area to build more dense.

      Neighborhoods change.

      • Density and lack of character are two different things. You can have density and ownership as well. Manhattan and Brooklyn are both below their peak populations of 100 years ago – but they have far more tall buildings. You can argue a lot of the charm is gone now too

  2. People should be much more concerned with the quality of the architecture and not the height. There is no reason SFH’s and midrises cannot exist side by side. The way of being a good neighbor is not making your building butt ugly and thoughlessly cheap.

  3. More Buildings…
    More People…
    More Density…
    No Parking…
    Is this a solution to the Bronx’s
    innumerable problems?
    Who really profits from this?

  4. Love it.would love to get a two bedroom apartment
