I agree with everyone that has said that the fifth floor should be removed. In respect to the C-1 zoning laws this project is entirely too tall. If you look at the sketch of this proposed project you will be able to see that the scale is imposing to the current homes in the immediate vicinity that are not across the street or on the opposite corner. It swallows #226 and towers over the park. On another note. Have you folks looked into the empty lot on Bishop Allen Drive immediately next to the very large underutilized parking lot on Prospect Street. The zoning laws are different in this area and would you be able to provide many more homes as well as parking for the residents without displacing anyone, unlike the Broadway proposal.

Honestly, community space and open space. I know housing is the answer we’re supposed to give, and affordable homeownership is a top priority. We also need housing for seniors who live in the neighborhood and want to age in place. But not every lot in the neighborhood has to turn into housing- open space and community space are needed, too.

This is just too large and imposing. Also this does not provide enough parking for the owners. Parking is already tight in this neighborhood now under normal conditions. When you add in street sweeping and snow emergencies it's nearly impossible!
