Am I the only person who sees Oak Park real estate as prime and valuable land and not to be given away to builders with big dreams of profit? Why are we contemplating using a company that suggests a 45-unit building can make do with 17 parking spots? The reason for the 17 spaces was the hope/fantasy that people moving in will not own cars. This is based on what study? Could it be that more parking spaces would mean less apartments to rent?
Additionally, please note that the building is 26 feet taller than the village code allows.
There must be other developers who are willing to work within the village code and the single-family neighborhood area to create something we can live with and not just endure.
