Document Description
The project includes a Special Use Permit (File No. SP21-044) and Historic Preservation Permit (File No. HP21-001) to partially demolish the Realty Building, a designated City Landmark, and the proposed construction of a mixed-use building. The project would remove the majority of extant building components except for the front facade, the exterior walls, and a portion of the interior core including the central entry vestibule and corridor on the first floor, the stairs, and the second-floor central lobby. The project then proposes to construct a 146,458-gross square-foot, 22-story building with one below-grade basement level. Approximately 18,643 square feet of commercial uses would be located on the first and second floors and a total of 220 affordable senior housing units would be located on the third through 22nd floors. The basement would be used for utilities and bicycle storage for the residents and would include a backup generator for use in the event of a power outage. A rooftop deck is also proposed to be used as residential common open space. The total building height would be approximately 239 feet (to top of elevator shaft). The Special Use Permit would consider the creation of commercial condominiums for the commercial space.
