Germantown's Monroe at 7th Scales Back amidst Neighborhood Concerns

Not too long ago I received word from inside Germantown that team members with the ambitious Monroe at 7th development were scaling back its concept to "something more reasonable," after a disclosure that the original plans requested blasting and the construction of a new storm sewer for the entire block. Up until that point the development team--which includes Germantown architect firm Carnell Mosley--reportedly had a swimming relationship with affected neighbors, but I am told that developers did not incorporate the feedback or concerns of residents around the project into the plans.

CLARIFICATION: Germantown resident wrote me to say that developers never disclosed the blasting/sewer info to neighbors before they decided to scale back.
