Out of character?

Dear Editor:

Is it just me or does the artist rendering of the proposed Aspen Walk project that was in Friday’s paper look completely out of character for the Park Circle neighborhood?

It’s obviously hard to tell from a drawing, but this project looks immense in its size. Perhaps they should put up some poles around the property so people have a real idea of what may be built in their neighborhood. I realize we need the employee housing, but at what cost? The city needs to stop giving in to these developers and not put what looks like a giant hotel there at Park Circle.

P.S.: I do not live in that area, so I am not another NIMBY. Thank you.
