From my understanding, he really cant stop it anyway. The zoning on the site allows for a building of that height, and its within the total # of units allowed under the PD for LSE.

Reilly's letter that 'killed' the first iteration of the tower was over pedestrian access and landscaping. He didn't even attempt talking about anything else, because he knows he can't do anything about it.

Not worried one bit about Site I, or the rest of LSE. Its been ongoing for 15 years, and has already survived one housing market crash. If the next housing crash is to come soon, they will simply wait it out.

Edit: typo
