Will Village West be changed by upzoning?
The Village West has been prime territory for developers, only nothing has been done in all these years except to eliminate apartment buildings, were people were living. In those spaces is deserted land.
Upzoning is now on the table as an issue, brought on by a law professor at UM, Anthony V. Alfieri.
Mr. Alfieri feels that the properties along Grand Avenue are meant for low rise development and zoned for residential. If others have their way, it will end up being the next Brickell.
It seems that no matter how much many of us try to keep the village a village, greed gets in the way and tries to change the neighborhood. It's always a case of having a great little neighborhood and then overbuilding and over-populating it which changes the whole neighborhood from what it originally was. The developers pocket the money and the rest of us are left with over-development, upzoning and lower quality of life.
