    Different strokes for different folks. I don’t think taller = better….but I live in one of em’. Not trying to compensate for anything :))

  2. Have to agree with down townie.

    I’m not entirely sure what this picture is supposed to convey. Stretching the existing buildings just makes them look ridiculous. Bigger/taller on its own doesn’t necessarily = better. I think mid-rise developments like the austin city lofts and nokonnah offer a much better sense of community and way of life than something like the Austonian/W/Monarch/360 which all offer some variation on sterile hotel-style living.
