There are many-low/med rise condo projects planned for the North End already(Pier 8, Tiffany/Barton). Jamming the maximum allowable units(and then some) into an existing single dwelling property, sets a dangerous precedent for every other large or double lot. Citing increased property values and municipal taxes seems a little short sited to me. What about quality of life? Will you be able to safely cross Bay or James Street(or even cut-through side streets)? Outdoor tranquility replaced with 3-floor overlooking balconies, idling cars and large scale waste disposal containers. Many houses nearby don't have driveways; where will condo visitors park?
