  1. I was at this meeting but did not hear the vote tally (because I'm not a resident of WLVN, I could not vote and there is no provision for voting when you are just over their borders-[unlike South Lakeview Neighbors]). Given the comments at the meeting, I was surprised at the outcome, as many were concerned about the height (too much) and the parking (too little). The neighborhood south of Belmont does not have zoned parking and residents of this new bldg will obviously park on Fletcher, Greenview or Southport. I am not a \”no density\” guy and feel that properly designed and situated, mid-rise buildings can enhance a neighborhood. The five floors of this building are more than I would have wanted, and more than SLN bargained for and received at Diversey-Lincoln. For my money, however, TOD is simply next year's SROs. Good luck long haul getting $2,000 for a one-bedroom and $3,000 for a 2-bedroom.
