Changes Made to Mixed-Use Development Proposal at Seventh and High
A proposal to build a six-story building at the northeast corner of East Seventh Avenue and North High Street is heading back to the University Area Review Board.
Although the basic parameters of the proposal are similar to what was brought before the board this past April (and before that, in April of 2015), some changes have been made to address concerns expressed at those meetings.
The latest plan from Chicago-based CA Ventures calls for 154 apartment units containing 288 beds, a 188-space parking garage and about 16,000 square feet of ground-floor retail divided into six separate storefronts. A one-story laundromat and Dollar Tree store would be demolished to make way for the new building.
Parking for residents would be located on two underground levels and would be accessed from Euclid Avenue, while 32 first-floor spaces would be reserved for retail customers and accessed from North Pearl Street.
Submitted elevations show a more colorful facade and changes in material, with brick being been added to the first floor on all sides of the building. A site plan also spells out in further detail a plan to market the project to two different demographics – 79 one- and two-bedroom apartments are labelled “young professional,” while 75 units with higher bed counts will target the student market.
The University Area Review Board will vote on the proposal at their August 18th meeting. Another conceptual review of the View on Pavey Square development is also on this month’s agenda.
