Letter: ‘Appalled’ by high-rise plans
April 2, 2016

Dear Editor:

I am appalled by the plans to add more high-rise buildings in Roosevelt Square. As a homeowner, I invested in this neighborhood for its low-rise, historic look and low traffic density. With the new plans of Related Midwest Co. and CHA, we will look more like the River West area.

We already have high rises in the Medical District and plenty of density in the Canal Street area. Why spread this into the core of Roosevelt Square?

In addition to two new high rise towers, we will compound the traffic that already exists in our community.
