My thoughts exactly. I have the same complaint with the Vermont/Wilshire development and a lot of the South Park developments. In downtown, I really feel we should be building to house about 1 million residents.although I completely agree with creating more housing around metro stops, this project looks to fall short. Why are they only 3-4 story buildings? Why not build something higher? Are there rules and regulations for that? Or is there not enough demand? My first thought is that demand will absolutely be abundant.
I could honestly careless how high the ceilings are or big the bathrooms, I want to see developments intended to comfortably house a thousand people-plus, not just a couple of hundred. Not to mention that until and unless these developers start building more 3 bedroom or 2-bedrooms and a nook/loft, they're going to be pricing out the very people the city wants to inhabit these residences: young active people with expendable income. There's a limited number of idiots in Los Angeles willing to spend 50%-plus of their income renting a "luxury" apartment/condo and suburban parents willing to spoil their kids with an "urban experience."
