Condos Proposed for First and Summit in Italian Village
A plan to demolish the former gas station at the corner of East First Avenue and Summit Street and replace it with six condominiums has been conditionally approved by the Italian Village Commission.
Although final architectural details have yet to be presented, the basic massing, height and density were approved during a special meeting of the commission on May 13th.
Jeff Baur of Borror Properties explained that the approval allows them to move forward with some of the civil engineering work as well as demolition of the existing building, which they hope to begin in the next 30 to 45 days. The project will be built and marketed by Truberry Custom Homes, a subsidiary of Borror Properties.
The plan calls for a two-and-a-half story building with six two-bedroom condos ranging in size from 2,100 to 2,377 square feet. Each will have an attached, two-car garage accessed from the rear of the building; the front doors of the units will face Summit.
The corner parcel has been a fixture on the Italian Village Commission agenda for many months, as Borror – and other developers before them – proposed a variety of different configurations for the highly visible site.
