    Am a concerned neighbor of 40 years on 28th & Elm. This is the first I heard of this Hugh development. Need more information and want to register my concern of so many rental units on Fairfax.

    Interesting the councilman hid this from the very citizens he is tasked to serve. We should all remember that when he is up for re-election. Thanks to the GPHC for keeping us informed.

    Rental unit pricing should be higher to ensure respectful people move in

      I’m all for new 1-story development. I’m not all for the large amount of new residences proposed and second story buildings. It will take a lot away from the historical feel of the neighborhood. Kearney is updated & renovated, but fits in well with the surrounding community.

      Just because you have more money doesn’t mean you will be a better person. Money doesn’t buy class, respect, morals or values. In fact, money can cause you to lose those things about yourself. Don’t be classist. It’s ugly.

        I’ll second D.’s response and I think it was perfectly worded.

    Where are all the apartment dwellers going to park? They better build at least 2 parking spots in a garage or something so that they don’t start parking everywhere on nearby streets.

      Heaven forbid they use your street! I’m sure you paid a lot for it. I’m sure they’ll provide the required parking so you have nothing to worry about

    It is extremely irritating to me that this new development seems to hAve been planned with no respect for neighborhood input. I for one am frustrated that these developers have decided to build in our neighborhood under the assumption that thier design and plan will benefit the neighborhood. Here is another example of a developer forcing their vision onto an older historic area with. I am also concerned about the wealth grab that this will enable. Forcing rents to skyrocket at the benefit of the developer. 800 to 1000 a Month for a studio apt is unsustainable and outrageous.

    Hoping for the best! Let’s consider the positive aspects this type of development can bring to our community…. Current business owners have sold willingly at prices way above market rates, bringing a positive financial impact to them and their families. Continued violence on Fairfax and in the alleys may lessen as a much needed gathering place is created for N Park Hill residents. I would like to give the developer the benefit of the doubt when it comes to parking, etc. This is not his first rodeo and he needs to provide parking in order for it to succeed. The aricle fails to mention the garages being built with the residential units. Let’s open our minds and trust a little bit. The amount of complaining about this block over the 12 years we’ve lived near it shouldn’t be forgotten now. If we work together to make it successful, it can be a win-win for everyone.

    C’mon people! Granted I live 4 blocks away, but I could not be more excited for this development to come in. More density will bring more entertainment, dining and transit, something I would love to see more of… The developer is going to want to maximize his/her profits, so I’m sure they will build the nicest places PH can sustain.

    Park Hill is not the neighborhood that we chose to live in back when we decided to move there. It is becoming more and more like the Highlands … just read the comments and decide for yourself
