While there's a tremendous amount of rental unit stock being added in the past few years, I think it's a very good thing. The bleeding edge of student rental sprawl is already out to Stadium Blvd to south, beyond Angell neighborhood to the East, and already pushing beyond West Park to the west. I'm sure residents aren't happy about that, and I really think students should remain close to campus.

The height of this building is inappropriate for the location. Washington Ave can handle much taller stuff since it's not around any single family homes. Really this project should be between 20-30 stories. We're now filling probably one of the least controversial NIMBY sites with a squat building.
