25 units with 2 bedrooms certainly does not mean 50+ residents will be arranging rooftop parties together - these students will all have lives and social circles fairly independent of each other’s. This location is already neighboring several tall(er) buildings (including Brown’s 14+ story Sciences Library, a 5 story computer science department, and the 9 story Minden residence hall all just across the street). And now that I think of it, most of the “homes” in this area are multi-unit dwellings perennially up for rent to college students. Seems to me like rich East Side residents simply don’t want to see too much change so close to their neck of the woods.
