Document Description
Most of the site is currently developed with a pay-for-parking surface parking lot. The southwest corner of the site is occupied by a single-family house. As proposed, the project would demolish the existing hardscape, relocate the existing house, remove all trees on the property, and construct two residential towers with ground floor retail and a shared parking structure. The east tower would be 22 stories in height with 335 residential units and the west tower would be 20 stories with up to 308 residential units. Both towers would have double height retail and residential lobby space and a parking level on the first floor, a parking level on the second floor, and a parking level and residential apartments on the third floor. The fourth floors and above would be all residential apartments. The entire site would be underlain by three levels of underground parking.
