Man I love the westside but I would totally hate living there with those neighbors between their fighting the condo development to closed off selling of property to complaining about market rates to now trying to zone their way into stopping housing just like they live in from being built. What s shame.
The pitchforks are coming out. And Westside isn't the only neighborhood where the vibe is getting a little on the intense and hostile side between developers, builders, and residents.

Its funny how real estate works, people in the burbs hate it when density comes in with new apartments, lower income types start moving in because they say it will hurt property values. Lower income people hate it when gentrification comes in there neighborhood with increasing density, building new houses/condos because they say it will force them out/increase property values.

The takeaway is that nobody likes anyone and everything is scary.

Los Alamos Market, 1667 Summit on the Upper Westside, renovated their building with an all-window storefront. The view faces the west and is epic. Still serving up the same great grub

What's the deal with 2922 Summit? The city approved the plans in February 2017. The house is been sitting unfinished for awhile now.
