Document Description
The proposed mixed-use project includes 772 multi-family residences, 680,000 sf of retail/commercial space (including, but not limited to, retail, restaurant, and other non-retail commercial uses), 85,000 sf of office space, 3,541 parking spaces, and onsite open space/recreational amenities. The retail/commercial uses include the renovation of the existing Sears retail store and the relocation of the existing Sears Auto Center to a new location on the project site. The proposed project would revitalize an under-utilized, nearly abandoned site eliminating the blight and deterioration that is associated with the current conditions, by providing a pedestrian-friendly mixed-use development with a variety of new housing and retail opportunities for the community.
