How can 20 apartments be better?
If they are small apartments, smaller families means less cars (not all newlyweds have 2 cars)

If the difference is 20 apartment with 29 parking spots vs 6 houses and 12 apartments (bsmt and attic for each) for a total of 18 with 6 parking spots then the duplexes will have a much bigger negative effect.

From what I heard the reason they're not going with duplexes is because there's issues with basements due to point bay being there (gas?). No one will buy a duplex with out a rentable basement, it's simply unaffordable. Hence the reason to switch to apts

It's average of 1550sf per unit.
5 apartments per floor, 4 apts are 3br/1.5 bath, the last is 2br/1.5 bath.
I thought they would be bigger than that.

If the difference is 20 apartment with 29 parking spots vs 6 houses and 12 apartments (bsmt and attic for each) for a total of 18 with 6 parking spots then the duplexes will have a much bigger negative effect.

The duplexes would have had 24 parking spots not 6. Still, 6 houses = 12 cars, and 1.5 cars per apartment (like the apt building provides) would mean 18 cars, for a total of 30 cars with 24 spaces vs an apt building with 30 cars with 29 spaces.

But yet- who wants an apt building? Duplexes are much nicer.
Next we're gonna hear that it's turning into a shopping mall because it's part of the UEZ.

Despicable is letting your well-known biases color your assumptions; how do you know someone from the community ran to the APP with the story?

@moshe123 is making it sound like there are 2 legitimate sides here.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Not only is he accusing him of going to the press, there's absolutely nothing wrong with doing so.
