I do believe we need to fight for the neighborhoods and strike a balance with the school at all times. I don’t think redeveloping a strip mall and parking lot along with a couple of underutilized properties as a big threat to that. Particularly when you think about how it could help ease some of the pressure of students looking for housing off campus. That pressure on rents is a much bigger threat for Fox Point and College Hill.
