Death knell

December 17, 2011


To the editor:

I see where they want to build another tower in East Lawrence: the “iSoar Tower.” Is that grandiose enough?

This seems an odd neighbor for the old veterinary office, the Social Service League, the Percolator, the ancient Turnhalle and the other venerable buildings along Rhode Island Street.

Apartments, condos — gosh, even a hotel. Perhaps they’ll have a casino. The winner would get the last parking place in Lawrence.

Let’s be serious. This tower would toll the death knell for East Lawrence. It must not happen.

We won't know the answer to this letter untill One-eye Wilbur gives us his uneducated opinion.

I live in East Lawrence, I like East Lawrence. I do not have property adjacent to the proposed site. I like the idea of apartments and a hotel on that site. I appreciate the developer (who I admit I don't like) has adjusted the height. I hope the city, the developer and the neighbors can work out a compromise. Best of luck to all of them.
