I feel like this argument would have made sense 5-10 years ago, but this area is already normalized to NU students and has been for awhile. Pretty much every building near the proposed site is northeastern-owned or occupied by northeastern students. Whether this building exists or not isn't going to make a difference in students' perception of the area or their desire to move to surrounding apartments.It's making the area more desirable and giving students more cause to be there (whereas [lets face it] neu students in the past probably avoided the area as much as possible). This building (like Lightview) will likely be very expensive. So while normalizing the area in the minds of students, those same students will look for cheaper rents further south, pushing out families.
