The project proposes to demolish the five existing office and industrial buildings (a total of approximately 103,900 square-feet), to shift the parcel boundaries to create five lots: A, B, C, D, and 1, and to construct approximately 316 rental apartments and 116 for-sale townhomes, as shown on Figure 3, Proposed Illustrative Site Plan. Lot A would support a 5-story building with 316 rental apartments, stoops along public streets and pedestrian walkways, and approximately 335 parking spaces in a parking structure with a single level below-grade and a single level at-grade. Lots B, C, and D would support 3-story townhomes that would be subdivided via condominium mapping and would be oriented to public streets. Lot B would be developed with approximately 26 townhomes and would include a total of 74 parking spaces. Lot C would be developed with approximately 18 townhomes and would include a total of 24 parking spaces. Lot D would be developed with approximately 72 townhomes and would include a total of 153 parking spaces. Long-term and shortterm bicycle parking would also be provided throughout the site. Lot 1 would stretch across the site from Constitution Drive to Independence Drive, with an approximately 013,200-square foot park near the middle of the site and a 12,100-square foot paseo connecting the park to Constitution Drive and to Independence Drive. A pedestrian pathway would also extend to Chrysler Drive. Figure 3 also shows that the project is proposed to include a landscaped courtyard within the center of the apartment building, landscape zones around building perimeters and along street frontages, private balconies and decks for approximately 214 of the apartment units all of the townhomes. The project proposes a total of approximately 25,300 square feet of public open space, 52,500 square feet of publicly accessible open space (landscape zones and street frontage), and approximately 53,870 square feet of common areas and private open space.
