    New Five Story 101-Unit Apartment Building Proposed for Victorian Village
    March 11, 2014 – Walker Evans

    A new 101-unit 100,000 square foot five-story apartment building is being proposed for development on a large 1.2 acre surface lot in a rapidly changing section of Victorian Village. Borror Properties is proposing the construction of two connected buildings at 991 Dennison Avenue, located between Second and Third Avenues just south of the Specialty Select Hospital Center.

    It looks like all three of these renderings are the view from the rear alley, … with the four story building on the north side of the lot appearing on the left.

    I’d be interested in seeing additionally a rendered view from Dennison, drawn elevations, and a site plan. Townhome units screening parking along Dennison, 2nd, and 3rd seem appropriate. Also, like others have mentioned one or two small retail spaces would probably work well at this spot.

    The overall height and density aren’t a problem for me, but I’d like to see a setback along the two side streets. Interested to hear what the VVC has to say about this.

    FWIW – We should be getting some better renderings in the morning.

    Great addition to the neighborhood..I’m sure the renderings will be tweaked several times before this goes up. I’m all for it other than the fact it needs some type of small retail space incorporated into the first floor..corner store, salon, small dental office, coffee shop..something.

    This proposal has been reworked and resubmitted for review at this month’s VVC meeting on Thursday. New details below,

    991 Dennison Avenue
    Berardi + Partners (Applicant) SND Partners, LLC (Owner)
    An application, siteplan, drawings, and photos have been submitted.

    Conceptual Review
    Construction of several styles of residential buildings on 1.16 acre site.
    The southern portion of the site is proposed to be developed in the style of 2.5-story ‘brownstone’ townhomes as individual dwelling units, with integrated garage spaces accessed through an interior court.
    The northern portion of the site is proposed to be developed with a 3.5-story building including a 4.5-story building element at Starr Avenue.
    All parking levels will be set approximately 4-ft below existing grade.
    Buildings have been set back from the right-of-way to preserve green space.

    Scaled-Back Residential Project Proposed for Dennison Avenue
    May 8, 2014 4:37 pm – Brent Warren

    Borror Properties has been keeping busy in the Short North; they’ve proposed a 16-unit apartment building on West Third Avenue, more residential for the corner of Summit and Third in Italian Village, and recently received approval for the 24-unit Prescott and Pearl apartments. They have scaled back plans, though, for what could be their largest project yet in the neighborhood; 69 units on a 1.2-acre parking lot at the corner of Dennison and Starr Avenues in Victorian Village.

    I’m never one for scaling back projects in the Short North, but I will say that does look much better than the original renderings. Should fit in nicely!

    Agreed. I’m not sure if the scaling has anything to do with it, but the updated renderings have far more detail, and are looking much better than the originals, which I assume were just very very preliminary and lacking in design details.

    I definitely like the new designs much better, but once again am disappointed that another project had to be scaled back to be approved.

    Wait! It’s not just the backward villagers of the University Area Commission who want to see new development that relates to a neighborhood’s existing architecture? ;)

    Because 1 more story and 32 more units would’ve totally changed the entire character of the neighborhood.

    It resulted in a much better looking building, so I guess it worked.

    In relation to the design, I definitely agree it looks better. The first design looked like a pair 270 office buildings. Just saying that the scale would not have been significantly different with an additional single story, especially if set back the way the 4th story is in the current design.

    true, but for all we know maybe at the larger scale all they could afford to do was the 270-style, and making it a little smaller allowed for a higher quality building?
