“We think it is too close to us; the footprint of the building is still too big,” said Roger Fritz, a resident of Weston Place who spoke on behalf of the Weston Place Condominium Owners Association before the city’s Urban Design Commission on Wednesday. “That’s just too much, too close to a residential area.”

Well, there's always the "Rear Window" option.
Critics say the proposed apartment at 198 units per acre is more than twice as dense as the 12-story, 121-unit Weston Place and far more dense than any other building in the Hill Farms area.

I still call it the "Ghost Condo" because for the first years of its existence, few windows were illuminated at night.  The occupancy rate at the end of 2013 was 70%.

Hilldale's latest "in-fill" project.
