"Rather than pushing for fewer floors, neighbors should push for better design and small changes at the corners that can make a difference in a neighborhood's look and feel."

Of course the assumption that is being made is that the neighbors really do worry about the look and feel. Forgive my cynicism, but I think in almost every place where the neighbors complain about these things, what they are really complaining about is density.

the col brooks project is a perfect example of the developer making a number of changes to the design and it still not being enough as evidence by the lawsuit that has been filed against.

Neighbors must understand that they won't stop projects and by throwing up unreasonable objections, they don't encourage developers to address their reasonable objections.
