About the Project 


The applicant proposes to demolish the existing bank and construct a mixed-use building with approximately 238 dwelling units, approximately 60,000 square feet of office uses, and approximately 30,000 square feet of retail uses (including a replacement bank with a drive through) with a maximum height of 12 stories. The Verizon telephone switching station will remain and will be incorporated into the site plan. To accomplish this development, the applicant proposes:

  • a change in the General Land Use Plan designation for the Verizon site only from “Government and Community Facilities” to “Medium Density Mixed Use";
  • a site plan, with requested modifications to the zoning ordinance regarding parking requirements, and for additional density through a combination of achieving LEED Gold certification for the site and other provisions as permitted by the Zoning Ordinance (e.g., provisions for public open space, affordable housing, etc.), and exclusions from gross floor area; and
  • a use permit for a drive through.
