Across town from the new “Stop the San Felipe Skyscraper” signs popping up in River Oaks and Vermont Commons to oppose the proposed 17-story Hines office building, another crop of anti-development placards is objecting in free verse to the Morrison Heights complex of apartments and condos that’s currently under construction near Houston Ave. and White Oak. Eschewing both the bold imperative of the San Felipe signage and the cartoon menace of the Ashby Highrise hatred, these seem to prefer the rhetorical oomph of puns and wordplay and rhyme. And what, exactly, is the development that has received this poetic ire?
The complex, being built by Fisher Homes and developed by Camelot Realty, is located at 2802 Morrison St., near Houston Ave. and Wrightwood St., where that swath of Woodland Park was cleared behind another pack of under-construction townhomes from first-time builder Bill Workman.
