I like the different styles of homes. I like the "greens" in front of the row homes. Where is the common space for the detached homes to entice neighbours to mix and mingle outdoors? Why can't the main portion of the WSSC building be kept and turned into condos? What about the additional traffic caused by so many news residences? There is basically only one way in and out--Hamilton Street. Seems like a heavy burden to place on a road already heavily traveled. Taylor Johnson, Oglethorpe St

I too think about the traffic impact. But the Werrlein proposal would bring less traffic than turning the WSSC building into condos. Condos could mean hundreds of new residents--and that's just in the building, not to mention any development of the parking lot. Adding condos might also require a parking structure. The Werrlein proposal could bring lower density compared to another developer because Werrlein would put single-family homes (rather than townhomes) across from the existing homes on Hamilton Street and 41st Avenue.
