All you can see at the intersection of Colony and Carmel is woods, but the property owner says nearby neighbors have a choice to make -- risk the trees or the skyline.

"We want to keep the ambience of what we have here -- the nature, the birds, the shrubs, the flowers, the trees, the lake," said Henry James, who has teamed up with a developer hoping to build condos over the lake.

This site is a block away from the Cell Phone tower that was designed to look like a pine tree...these will fit right in.

The developers recently withdrew the original rezoning proposal for the two 4-story buildings and are now planning to build three 3-story buildings on the site. The project now called Hagood Reserve, will have 36 units contained in about 2 acres of the 9 acre to preserve a pond and greenspace. The building heights are now planned to be 58', which should eliminate the issue of them rising above the tree line.

Lots of good excuses as to why the landowner took the highest density deal which would pay him the most. Not that I blame him, but the whole politically correct excuse of saving the environment makes me laugh. Of course the neighbor's arguments that you'll end up with a bunch of apartments is equally ridiculous. Those condos are $800K a piece, hardly a harbinger of apartment slums.
