Letters: 15-story condo would be a monster

Re “Judge clears the way for condo building that would be midtown’s tallest” (sacbee.com, Oct. 19): New development if done right complements a neighborhood. The 15-story tower proposed for 25th and J streets takes a precedent-setting sledgehammer to the heart of midtown, clearing the way for more intrusive towers in a neighborhood of small businesses and classic Victorian homes. There's a perfect place for high-rises like this one. It’s called the rail yard.
