We of course know nothing of the future for a fact (just as we don't know the developer will build on the other sites they own or are looking at). What we do know is that there is a relationship between supply and demand. So, if a great deal of supply is added all at once, it is a reasonable expectation this will reduce demand to build housing elsewhere. After all, there are only so many people who want to/are expected to move to Hamilton in the next 5-10 years. 180 units of housing built here will lessen the demand to build those housing units elsewhere downtown.

More to the point, why is it not OK to ask for better design which integrates into the community better both physically (height) and socially (interaction opportunities)?
