69-Unit Dennison Avenue Project Gets Conditional Approval
Borror Properties has cleared another hurdle in their efforts to develop a 1.2-acre parking lot on Dennison Avenue, receiving conditional approval for a 69-unit project at the July meeting of the Victorian Village Commission.
The latest design is similar to one presented to the commission in May; 53 apartments in a four-and-a-half-story building at the corner of Dennison and Starr, with 12 townhomes and four carriage houses on the southern portion of the site, which extends to West Second Avenue. The townhomes and carriage houses would be for-sale products.
Jeff Baur of Borror Properties expressed excitement at the conditional approval, but stressed there is still plenty of work to be done before any ground is broken.
“This is definitely a good step, which will allow us to start with the pre-development activities, the civil engineering,” he said. “But there are still some architectural details to be worked out; the commission had some tweaks and ideas so we’re going to go back and work on those.”
Borror Properties received final approval at the same meeting for another of their projects – a new 16-unit apartment building next to a 100-year-old building at 40 West Third Avenue. Baur said they hope to start renovation of the historic house and demolition of a one-story office addition within the next 45 days, depending on how quickly they can get the necessary permits.
Construction of the new building on Third could begin as soon as September 1st, which is also the potential start date of another Borror Properties project – the Prescott and Pearl apartment building in Italian Village. Baur said that the plan is to work on both developments simultaneously.
