Document Description
As proposed, the project would demolish the existing parking lot and buildings on-site (totaling approximately 22,527 square feet) and construct two towers (a 21-story office/retail tower in the southern portion of the site at East Santa Clara Street and North Fourth Street and a 27-story residential tower in the northern portion of the site at St. John Street and North Fourth Street) connected via a podium on floors one to four and would include commercial condominiums. Commercial uses would account for approximately 525,000-square feet, retail uses up to 8,500-square feet, and the residential tower would have up to 415 residential units. One level of below-grade parking is proposed across the project site. A total of 1,151 parking spaces is proposed (893 parking spaces for the office component and 228 parking spaces for the residential component). Of the 893 parking spaces proposed for office space, 30 parking spaces would be allocated for a shared parking agreement with the senior apartments located west of the site at 60 North Third Street. Vehicular access to the site would be provided via one two-lane inbound-only driveway and one multi-lane, two-way driveway along North Fourth Street. Two additional driveways for the loading docks would also be provided along North Fourth Street.
