Some neighbors are not happy about a proposed micro unit apartment building coming to Ballard.

"We just want to know why the mayor and planning committee think our block needs more density, we are already like townhouse row," said Linda Melvin.

Some residents say the parking situation is bad enough already, and that adding more density will only make it worse.
  
The four-story building will be built on 62nd Street Northwest, on a 50-by-100-square-foot lot.
  
The building's 27 apartments will be studios, between 224-and-450-square feet. Developers say it will provide affordable housing in Ballard.
