It was going to be more dense but the condo building next door hired Harden to complain enough so they made it less dense. They are also the ones building the riverwalk on their land that Boyer was very proud of.

The actual density is probably the same or close to the original. One way you can do this is to reduce the number of overall units but increase the number of bedrooms in the remaining units.

Let's give it 4 more months and this project will get reduced to a single home.

I've never see a project go through reduction after reduction in scope as this one has.

Yes, they'll start construction in July or August, according to the linked article.
