A new 14 rental unit apartment building, set for completion in June 2013, is being constructed just inches away from a family’s home! It’s so crazy neighbors are outraged.

Some say, “What was the city thinking?” But, according to published reports, no zoning rules are being broken.

When the owners bought this home 13 years ago, they paid $200,000.  They loved the view from their window, but not anymore.

Now, there is barely room to fit an arm between the two structures.

PIX11 news tried talking to the contractor by calling his number on the side of the building and he had no comment.

Some say just because you can build something doesn’t mean you should.

Those who have to live next to this monstrosity say they’re not going down without a fight.
