  1. Good height for the area. SWA seems to do good work.

  2. Lots of 90s/00s concrete front yard one and two-families in the area that will hopefully start selling for dense multi-family buildings into the future.

    • What’s wrong with one and two family homes for people? Who cares whether they were built in the 90’s or early 2000’s? Their front yards keep cars off the streets.
      why would you wish these people to sell their homes?
      You’re encouraging people to flee and sell out so the neighborhood can gentrify at a faster pace and then rents will rise and longtime low income renters will be forced out.
      Just so you can have taller buildings?

      • You realize this neighborhood is LESS dense than it was 50+ years ago. Many of the older buildings housing multiple apartments were lost to neighborhood decline. The newer single and two-family squat boxes with the cars sitting in front house far fewer people and lead to underutilized urban land. Especially literally feet from a subway station. See the South Bronx. Give it time and nearly all of the low-density stuff built on the post-Fires wastelands will be returned to high density multi-family as housing demands make the land under these late-20th century builds more and more valuable. That’s how the market works. Are you saying that’s a bad thing? Many of these owners will likely welcome with open arms an offer for 2 million. Why wouldnt you. Are you suggesting that the humans moving in are somehow worse than the current occupants? If so please explain how you justify this point of view.
