LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A meeting was held to discuss zoning concerns involving a proposed 17-story condominium building, called the Willow Grande Complex, in the Highlands.

People who live in historic Cherokee Triangle want to preserve its unique character and charm.

A coalition of neighbors living in the Cherokee Triangle section of the Highlands sat in front of the Louisville Planning Commission wearing red.

Their message, they don't want a 17-story, luxury condo built in their neighborhood.

 “As an environmental planner with a master degree in planning it doesn't fit the neighborhood what so ever,” Meredith Bland, who opposes the complex, said.

The zoning code will have to be changed to allow the 24 unit condo to be built at Eastern Parkway and Willow Avenue.

But there are other residents who like the idea.

The current two-story apartment complex there will be knocked down. And the condo will be built among existing eight, 11 and 20-story condos.

But until the zoning code is changed, this luxury condo design will remain just a picture.
