People in the Fells Point and Canton area of the city are fired up after news of a potential apartment building that could bring more people, and less parking.

The proposed five-story building in the 500 block of Washington Street would bring 40 new units, or potentially 80 new tenants, according to a flyer posted in the neighborhoods. The problem that has residents upset is with 80 people potentially coming into the city, the apartment complex only plans on providing 18 parking spots. 

The flyer continues to say this could potentially bring 60 new cars to the area which already struggles with parking. It also says this building could be 20 feet taller than other structures in the area, blocking other's views. 

On Tuesday there is a public review of the current concept plans where people plan on showing their support for or against the project.
