LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Residents in the Highlands are fighting to keep developers from constructing a 17-story building in their neighborhood.
Peggie Elgin, Cherokee Triangle Assn. President, explains, "We're opposed to this plan because it would be too tall. Seventeen stories -- it's too tall from the top to the bottom. It's too wide from side to side and from front to back. It's simply too tall and it doesn't meet the zoning for this neighborhood in this particular space."
Neighbors against the development have formed a campaign called Size Matters -- Stay True to the Triangle. The developer wants to build the new condos on Willow Avenue at Baringer Avenue where the Bordeaux Apartments are now.
Thursday night neighbors met with the developer to learn more about the plan and ask questions.
More than 60 people packed the place, a large majority of them opposed to the plan.
Timothy Martin, an attorney representing the developer, says, "It went as a typical meeting, you get a lot of complaints from people opposed to the project you get a lot of good comments."
The developer, Willow Grande LLC, says it needs to build the 17-story building with 24 units to make a profit.
Martin says the market is ready.
"I think there are a number of people out there who would love to be in the triangle and have nice a residence like this with the amenities and quality of this project," says Martin.
But the community wants the new building to stay true to the triangle, keeping its intimate feel.
Highlands resident Tim Holz, says, "It's a beautiful building for downtown or any other part of town but not here is all we're saying."
Many neighbors are concerned building such a tall building will take away from the intimate feel and the style of homes in the area.
