At their November 15th meeting, the City Plan Commission will be reviewing a proposal to construct a 5-story building with ground floor commercial with apartments on the upper-floors at 434 Atwells Avenue on Federal Hill. The proposed project contains 40 parking spaces partially enclosed and partially in an open surface lot.
The CPC’s agenda item:
[alert type=”success”] Download 434 Atwells Master Plan [/alert]
The applicant is requesting master plan approval to construct a mixed use development in the C-1 zone that will provide forty residential units, forty internal parking spaces and retail space on the ground floor. A height of 50 feet and five stories is proposed. The applicant is seeking a dimensional adjustment from the 45 feet, 4 story height limit of the zone and an adjustment for two parking spaces – for action (AP 28 Lot 150 – 9,993 SF, AP 33 Lot 508 – 10,353 SF, Federal Hill)
Some may remember that this site was cleared in 2005 for a proposed 10-story, 145′ condo tower that was never built.
The Belmonte Castelololol
Would love to see some streetscape renderings where you can see the elevation as you walk down Atwells towards the building. Will it be visible the entire length of Atwells?
How many total units? 50?
I love that there will be development towards Harris, the Capitol Records building project will help bring foot traffic to this end of Atwells too.
Keep bringing us more density! 🙂
Well that’s much more like it, can we agree on that? Sam reminds us of what they wanted here! Now we’re facing a new 2016 Belmonte La 195.
This rendering looks like a screenshot from SimCity 2000. I’m happy to rid the city of another vacant lot, but I hope this isn’t anywhere close to the final design.
hah Eric, I had that same thought about the 2005 shot. Personally I think the new design is incredibly ugly but maybe that means they’ll be focusing on affordable apartments rather than luxury units. If so then I’m all for it, definitely wish they would change the design a bit though.
KCB — 40 units and what is the Capital Records project??
Semi-enclosed parking? Will be a catch area for folks you do not want to run into going or coming from your car. Safety is critical in this area.
The parcel is for sale now.
To KCB – at only 5 stories, it will not be visible past Atwells and Sutton.
To Fernando – not sure what the land sale means in relation to the building….??
I think “the building” is just a plan to get approval from the City.
The land would sell for a higher price or more quickly with a preliminary approval.
At least that’s part of the pitch in the ad.
