Two New Mixed-Use Developments, One Residential Proposal to Be Discussed At Tuesday's Design Commission Meeting

Published : Tuesday, June 26, 2018 | 5:16 AM

A proposal to build a new two-to-four story mixed-use project at 635 East Union Street will go before the Final Design Review phase at the City’s Design Commission which meets on Tuesday, June 26, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Project developers are proposing 3,265 square feet of commercial space and 40 residential units on the site which is currently home to two office buildings constructed between 1940 and 1958 and a surface parking lot.

The Design Commission had earlier approved the removal of three protected trees when it approved an application for the development’s Concept Design Review in December.

Another project involving new construction of a three-to-eight story mixed-use project at 150 East Colorado Blvd. will go through the Preliminary Consultation phase before the Commission on Tuesday. Developers are proposing 50,850 square feet of commercial space and 88 to 100 residential units.

Currently, a non-historic four-story office building built in 1980 stands on the site. Eleven trees are proposed to be removed as indicated in a tree inventory submitted to the Department of Planning and Community Development, including three protected specimen trees, five protected mature trees, and three non-protected trees.

Finally, the previous approval of an application for Consolidated Design Review for new construction of a seven-unit multi-family residential development at 272 Bellevue Drive is going through a Call for Review at the Design Commission’s meeting. The site consists of two separate vacant lots located on the south side of Bellevue Drive. Two additional trees are recommended for removal by staff after the City’s consulting arborist determined the trees are in poor condition.

Also, a Concept Design Review previously scheduled for a proposal to build a new three-story, 35-unit multi-family residential development at 417 North Madison Avenue will be continued at a later date, Tuesday’s agenda showed.

The Design Commission meets every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at the City Council Chamber, Room S249 at City Hall.
