Two local developers are interested in constructing a five-story mixed-use building at the current site of the Wendy’s restaurant at 18th and High. Solove Real Estate, in partnership with Celmark Development, will present the project for conceptual review at a meeting of the University Area Review Board tonight.

According to the proposal, Wendy’s would remain a tenant on the first floor, while the upper four stories would hold 62 (mostly two-bedroom) apartments units. Two additional storefronts would bring the total retail space to just over 3,100 square feet . Parking for 143 cars would be provided in a multi-level parking garage, which would be entered from 18th Avenue on the side of the building.

Renderings by the project architect, BBCO Design, show a modern building with three stories built to the street; the top two stories step back along both the High Street and 18th Street sides.

More ongoing discussion on this development can be found HERE on the CU Messageboard.
