Renderings Released for Six-Story Pearl Street Proposal
Borror Properties last night presented their latest proposal for the southeast corner of Pearl and Prescott streets to the Italian Village Commission. Submitted renderings show a six-story, predominantly glass building filling nearly the entire footprint of the site.
The basic specs of the project – 13 condominiums, ranging from 1,100 to 2,800 square feet, with 2 garage parking spots per unit – are similar to what Borror initially proposed for the site in September. The new building would replace a one-story cinder block building that dates to the early 1970’s.
Jeff Baur of Borror Properties stressed that the concept is still preliminary.
“There is a lot of work and collaboration still to be done on this project,” he said, “but we are encouraged by the commission’s feedback and look forward to continuing to work on a design that will work for everyone.”
Connie Klema is a partner on the project. Klema, whose six single-family homes at the corner of Second Avenue and Summit Street are currently under construction, is also partnering with Borror on a significant addition to an existing single family house at 60 East Hubbard Street. Plans call for demolishing the current rear addition to that house and replacing it with a two-story, three-unit residential building with an 8-car garage.
Urban Order is the architect for the Hubbard project – which was also presented to the commission last night – while Design Group was brought on by Borror Properties for the Pearl Street building. Baur said that they expect to bring final plans and material selections for the Hubbard addition to the January commission meeting.
