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.
13 stories is squat for Ann Arbor? Although I agree the site can probably hold a much larger building, 13 stories/173 units is pretty ambitious in this market IMO.
Having more does not keep you from wanting more. And if you are always wanting more...I can tell you from experience, happiness will never come.
