Just weeks after a plan to replace a short stretch of single-story storefronts with a taller mixed-use development emerged, the proposal has returned with some changes. The Longford Group’s original proposal, which sought 24 three-bedroom condominium units with a 1:1 parking ratio, has since been reintroduced as a plan that seeks 18 residential units, Uptown Update reports. In addition, the total height has been reduced by 11 feet due to concerns from neighbors regarding shadows and reduction of sunlight.
The project’s design, which features a lighter colored masonry and composite panels for the exterior facade, comes from Stoneberg & Gross Architects. Aesthetically, the plan has not appeared to change much between iterations. And while existing storefronts would be demolished to make way for the new proposal, the plan includes several new retail spaces along Clark Street.
According to Uptown Update, area residents and members of the Dover Street Neighbors Association will review the proposal and hold a vote on the proposal in two weeks.
