Homeowners in a popular Nashville neighborhood are opposing a new apartment building that would bring in at least 90 new residents.
The controversial apartment building, 12th South Flats, which is already under construction, is located on 12th Avenue South, near Linden Avenue.
The new four story complex will take up take up four lots and will feature retail on the first floor and apartments on the remaining three floors.
Many homeowners, such as Ken Winters are not in favor of the new complex.
"[It's] too big and too much traffic," he said.
His neighbor Mark Scotland added, "This is a little too massive for the neighborhood and it's going to cause a lot of congestion."
Neighbors told Nashville's News 2 they have seen similar projects around Nashville and while it may work in other neighborhoods, it's just too big for 12th Avenue South.
Winters said, "This is an imported model from 1st Avenue, from Germantown, from the Gulch where the streets are four lanes and it's brought here to a two lane streetscaped street that can't handle it."
Although developers of the project have been approved by the planning department, they declined an on camera interview during a Monday night meeting to show neighbors their plans.
The 90 unit building is scheduled to be complete next spring.
