We, the undersigned, are opposed without qualification to the massive townhouse/ parking garage/condominium structure proposed for the parking lots fronting 42nd Street, between Pine Tree Drive and Sheridan Avenue, Miami Beach, on the grounds that it is, in design and execution, incompatible with the residential neighborhood over which it will loom. The proposed structure is too massive for this community of single family homes and small apartments. It will worsen traffic congestion on the already gridlocked 41st Street , especially the notoriously dangerous intersections at Sheridan Avenue and 41st Street and Pine Tree Drive and 41st Street . It will increase commuter traffic throughout the neighborhood as drivers seek to escape gridlock and thereby contribute to a decline in public safety. It will stress an already strained infrastructure and lead to a general diminution in the quality of life in the neighborhood. We ask the planning board to reject this application with prejudice.
