On the one hand, I feel this represents the utter failure of the concept of urban planning - the contrast of scale and materiality is jarring, and the lack of any contextual relationship of the tower to it's surroundings really diminishes what sense of place the Hilltop neighborhood remains.
On the other hand, living in the Heights I would love to see some development, if not of this magnitude!
Two questions - when did Netter buy the parcel, and exactly what would they have "lost" adhering to the JS masterplan?
